"Watch "Night of the Living Dead" at the History Center… if you dare. The 1968 cult classic, which revolutionized the horror genre, was filmed in and around Pittsburgh by the "Godfather of Zombies” George A. Romero, and celebrates its 45th anniversary this year. Frightfully fun snacks and refreshments, including alcoholic beverages, popcorn, and retro candy, will be available for purchase.

The winners of the inaugural Pittsburgh's Best Zombie Contestwill be crowned the Zombie King and Queen of Pittsburgh, and will each receive a prize package including a ScareHouse prize coffin with two RIP passes to The ScareHouse 2013, and merchandise from House of the Dead, Pittsburgh's premier zombie store.
