About this Episode

When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth... and probably visit the Zombie Museum at Monroeville Mall.

George A. Romero's epic zombie film, Dawn of the Dead, is arguably the most influential and critically acclaimed zombie movie of all time. The 1978 film is the middle chapter of a trilogy of walking dead films shot in and around the Pittsburgh area from 1968 thourgh 1985 that has contributed to our city's international reputation of "Zombie Capital of The World."

For approximately four months, Pittsburgh's Monroeville Mall was used as the primary filming location for countless scenes of mayhem and gore involving hordes of flesh-eating zombies. Now, nearly 35 years later, two local horror fans have created a year-round tribute to our living dead legacy with Monroeville Zombies: a themed attraction located featuring a museum, gallery, min-golf, a gift shop, and more.

Join us for a private tour of the museum, personal memories from the sets of Romero's films, and exciting news about the upcoming Zombie Crawl at Monroeville Mall taking place on Sunday, June 24.
