About this Episode

For this episode of the ScareHouse podcast, we’re paying tribute to the low-budget film that set the groundwork for just about every zombie movie, tv show, comic, or video game released in the last 45 years.... Night of the Living Dead.

ScareHouse Creative Director Scott Simmons and Scare Specialist Dr. Margee Kerr examine the lasting impact of the first modern day zombie movie. How did one little movie, shot near Pittsburgh 45 years ago, not only create an entirely new genre of scary movies, but help revolutionize modern horror and independent filmmaking? And how did George Romero and other Pittsburgh filmmakers inspire the creation of ScareHouse?

Check out this week's special episode of the ScareHouse podcast!

And if you live in Pittsburgh, please join us for a celebration of Romero's Living Dead Legacy at the History Center on Friday, February 22 with a rare screening of Night of the Living Dead admission to the museum, cash bar, and the search for Pittsburgh's Best Zombie! Tickets are just $15.
