Earlier this week i mentioned the grassroots effort to save the Evans City cemetery chapel. I don’t want to repeat myself, because seriously… the original post was only four days ago. Besides, the important part was really about me ordering an “authentic chapel artifact.” Yeah, that’s my actual piece of the chapel right there in the picture! You can take a closer look at both the front and the back, or swing by the official website to order your very own:
Now you can own a piece of horror movie history while doing your part to support the chapel preservation project. Each miniature coffin contains actual artifacts of the original Evans City Cemetery chapel as seen in George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, hand-selected and packaged by Gary R. Streiner. An illustrated backing card containing Gary’s signature authenticates your artifacts as 100% genuine. Order yours today because when they’re gone, they won’t be coming back!
I’m pretty stoked because it looks like Mr. Streiner actually sent me a little bit of metal from an old hinge or something, which is much better than a rotten roof shingle! And who knows… if enough of you don’t support the preservation effort, maybe my little artifact will actually become a valuable collectible one day. But let’s hope that’s not the case, because i’m really starting to warm up to the idea of saving this silly little building!
