City Of The Living Dead Filming Locations:

The following filming locations were used in the "City Of The Living Dead" movie: New York City, New York, USA & Savannah, Georgia, USA. [Thanks to Charlie Edh]

One of the Savannah locations was the cobblestone access street behind the River Street stores, with its several pedestrian bridges, and Civil-war era brick walls, was used in the film where the boy is running from the ghost-zombies. One zombie jumps down from the overhead bridge. Filmed at night with plenty of fog, this location was really creepy. [Thanks to Fred Passmore]

The bridge on which the zombie (played by Michelle Saovi) jumps off to attack the little boy can be found on River Street in Savannah GA as well as the long stone staircase featured in the same scene.

The scene in which Mary Woodhouse (Catriona MacColl) is recued from a sealed coffin by Peter Bell (Christopher George) has been filmed on Calvary Cemetery (Queens, New York City). [Thanks to Michael]

Other locations are the cemetery on Abercorn St next to the old Fire Station is the cemetery in which father Thomas hangs himself. The characters enter from the North gate and many elements are easily seen today if you go to the graveyard. [Thanks to Scott Spencer] However, Henry Shook kindly wrote in to say that the Cemetery Father Thomas Hangs himself is located in Midway Ga. Not Abercorn street in Savannah.

LX Preview

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!

Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
