An Oral History of Night of the Living Dead

In 1968, Night of the Living Dead made its world premiere at the Fulton Theater and put Pittsburgh on the film industry map. As the city prepares to celebrate Night’s 50th anniversary with a special screening and other events, City Paper spoke with three central cast and crew members about how they went from making commercials and industrial films for their small production company, Latent Image, to making one of the most influential horror films of all time.
