“They’re Coming to Get You:” Night of the Living Dead

The cult classic “Night of the Living Dead,” filmed in and around Western Pa., was one of the highest grossing films in 1968 and helped to revolutionize the horror movie genre. The film’s director and producer, George Romero, attended Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie Mellon) University in Pittsburgh and later ran a small production company in Pittsburgh. Among Romero’s early projects was filming segments for WQED’s “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” before the show launched nationally in 1968.
