But the cemetery is a popular destination for families and tourists alike, with people often stopping by to examine the country's history. Cars park around the block. Families come from all over the city to spend their weekends together — with both the living and the dead. Together, all together, my siblings, my mother A tour gives locals and tourists a history of Chile through the stories of the people, famous and ordinary, buried here. From the mother who killed herself out of desperation for her lost children, and still searches for them among the graves, to the exhumation of socialist president Salvador Allende, who took his own life during the coup.
The tour brings the tombs to life. The tour guide dresses as a scary monk and in the dark the tour can actually be a bit spooky. Just ask British tourist Laura Kelland. Tombs range from crowded, tenement-style living to more lavish structures.

There are also group mausoleums housing entire soccer teams, or members of the Union of Milkmen. While the residents are stuck in the past the cemetery itself has modernized in recent years. Funerals are scheduled via a "departures" board and tomb architects even advertise their work by carving a discreet telephone number somewhere on a grave. The desire of Chileans to be close to their loved ones will not die, making the cemetery not just a tourist attraction but also a vital part of everyday life. It's like a mix between this and this.
The actress had really short hair when they were filming Night. I went there too once. On acid. At night. My freinds were driving. It was foggy. There was deer randomly wandering around. Their eyes glowed in our headlights. I visit every year. Night of the Living Dead is one of my favorite horror films, and I'm lucky enough to live close to Evans City. We still take photos out of habit, but you'd think reinacting the movie would have lost its charm at this point. It hasn't. There's just something special one feels knowing that such a major movie that started out as a low budget indie was filmed so close so long ago.
Not much of the cemetary has even changed save some road paths and trees. If you ever have the opportunity to visit this place, do not pass it up. The Coopers sought refuge after a group of the same monsters overturned their car. Tom and Judy, a teenage couple, arrived after hearing an emergency broadcast about a series of brutal killings. Karen has fallen seriously ill after being bitten by one of the monsters. They venture upstairs when Ben turns the radio on, while Barbra awakens from her stupor. Harry demands that everyone hide in the cellar, but Ben deems it a "deathtrap" and continues to barricade the house upstairs with Tom's help.
Radio reports explain that a wave of mass murder is sweeping across the East Coast of the United States. Ben finds a television, and he and other occupants of the house watch an emergency broadcaster report that the recently-deceased have become reanimated and are consuming the flesh of the living. Experts, scientists, and the military have failed to determine the cause of the reanimations, though one scientist suspects that they are due to radioactive contamination from a space probe that was blown up in Earth's atmosphere while returning from Venus.
Ben plans to obtain medical care for Karen when the reports list local rescue centers offering refuge and safety.
Ben and Tom attempt to refuel Ben's truck at the nearby gas pump while Harry hurls Molotov cocktails from an upper window at the ghouls. Judy follows him, fearing for Tom's safety. Tom accidentally spills gasoline on the truck, which is set ablaze by Ben's torch. Tom and Judy try to drive the truck away from the pump, but Judy is unable to free herself from its door. The truck explodes, killing them both, and the ghouls promptly eat the charred remains.
Ben returns to the house but is locked out by Harry. Eventually forcing his way back in, Ben beats Harry, angered by his cowardice. A news report reveals that a gunshot or heavy blow to the head, as well as setting them on fire, can stop the ghouls.
It also reports that posses of armed men are patrolling the countryside to restore order. The power goes out, and the ghouls break through the barricades. Harry grabs Ben's rifle and threatens to shoot him. In the chaos, the two fight.
Evans City Cemetery
Ben wrestles the gun from Harry and shoots him. Harry stumbles into the cellar and, mortally wounded, collapses next to Karen, who has died from her illness. The ghouls try to pull Helen and Barbra through the windows, but Helen frees herself while Barbra holds them at bay. Helen returns to the cellar to see Karen reanimated and eating Harry's corpse.
Karen then stabs the terrified Helen to death with a masonry trowel. Barbra, seeing Johnny among the ghouls, is carried away by the horde and devoured. As the ghouls overrun the house, Ben fights off Karen, seals himself inside the cellar — the very course of action he had refused to do earlier — and shoots Harry and Helen's corpses as they begin to reanimate. The next morning, Ben is awakened by the posse's gunfire outside. Upon venturing upstairs, he is immediately mistaken for one of the ghouls and killed with a shot to the forehead.
His body is thrown onto a pile of corpses, which is then set ablaze. Romero embarked upon his career in the film industry while attending Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. The trio grew bored making commercials and wanted to film a horror movie during this period. They wanted to capitalize on the film industry's "thirst for the bizarre", according to Romero.
They pitched their idea for a then-untitled horror film. Co-written as a horror comedy by John Russo and George A. Romero under the title Monster Flick ,  an early screenplay draft concerned the exploits of adolescent aliens who visit Earth and befriend human teenagers. A second version of the script featured a young man who runs away from home and discovers rotting human corpses that aliens use for food scattered across a meadow.
Russo came up with the concept that they would be the recently dead only, because they could not afford to bring long-dead people out of their graves.

He also came up with the idea that they would be "flesh-eaters". The final draft, written mainly by Russo during three days in , focused on reanimated human corpses — Romero refers to them as ghouls — that consume the flesh of the living. Part one became Night of the Living Dead. Sequels Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead were adapted from the two remaining parts. Romero drew inspiration from Richard Matheson 's I Am Legend , a horror novel about a plague that ravages a futuristic Los Angeles. The infected in I Am Legend become vampire -like creatures and prey on the uninfected. I thought I Am Legend was about revolution.
I said if you're going to do something about revolution, you should start at the beginning. I mean, Richard starts his book with one man left; everybody in the world has become a vampire. I said we got to start at the beginning and tweak it up a little bit. I couldn't use vampires because he did, so I wanted something that would be an earth-shaking change. Something that was forever, something that was really at the heart of it.
I said, so what if the dead stop staying dead? And the stories are about how people respond or fail to respond to this. That's really all [the zombies] ever represented to me. There's this global change and there's one guy holding out saying, wait a minute, I'm still a human. He's wrong.
Go ahead. Join them. You'll live forever! In a certain sense he's wrong but on the other hand, you've got to respect him for taking that position. Matheson was not impressed by Romero's interpretation, feeling that "It was I don't harbor any animosity toward him.
