Horror movie fans are trying to save a southwestern Pennsylvania cemetery chapel featured in several scenes of the cult classic "Night of the Living Dead."
A sound engineer who worked on the 1968 George Romero film is trying to raise $50,000 to repair the chapel at Evans City Cemetery.
The cemetery association had planned to tear down boarded-up building but delayed those plans to see if Gary Streiner can come up with the money.
Cemetery association President Ron Volz tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the building will have to come down if the fundraising effort falls short. Streiner has raised about $7,000 so far.
Streiner says he hopes the chapel could be used as a movie museum or rented out for events, like zombie-themed weddings.
