Movie fans are hoping the cemetery chapel featured in Night of the Living Dead can get a new lease on life.

The cemetery association was planning to tear down the boarded up building, but Gary Streiner has stepped in to attempt to save it. Streiner, who was an audio technician on George Romero’s zombie classic, is trying to raise $50,000 to repair the building and convert it into a movie museum or a space that can be rented out for private events like zombie-themed weddings. So far he has raised about $7,000. The cemetery association president has told the press that the building will be destroyed if the funds are not raised.

However, thanks to a loophole in Pennsylvania State Law, Streiner is legally allowed to challenge the association to a series of Greek Games in a last bid attempt to save the property. If he can emerge victorious in the athletic portion, charity sales and costume events, and finally, the talent show, the chapel will be saved and he’ll take control of the Greek Council.

Getting attacked by zombies is tough. You basically have two options – submit to their clawing and biting, or try to escape. You might even try and fight back while you’re at it. Below you’ll find some brave souls who opted for the latter option – with mixed results.

While the success of these escape attempts proved to be mixed, there’s no doubt the characters involved would have been more successful had they trained in Parkour. Hence the premise on Break Media’s newest game,

Download the Zombie Parkour App to your iPhone or iPod Touch today, and guide your character through a maze of brain eating zombies while using you Parkour skills to stay alive, and see if you can last longer than the following six characters.

The Return of the Living Dead

Sometimes, in order to escape a mass of zombies, you have to do things you might not otherwise do under normal circumstances. Like in The Return of the Living Dead, unlikely partners Freddy and Spider make a plan to rush to an abandoned police car, swing back to pick up the other two members of their group, and get the hell out of there. But the sheer number of zombies forces Freddy to make a tough choice: They bail on their intended promise and put metal to floor – anything to get away from the zombies. He tells himself they’re going to go back for them, but both Freddy and Spider know the truth: There is no going back.

Dead Alive

Never let it be said that zombie movies don’t have happy endings. In Peter Jackson‘s Dead Alive, Lionel has to do a lot of terrible things to escape his zombie infested suburb, including literally mowing down hundreds of his former friends and family members, and taking a blender to them when the lawnmower stops being effective. But in one of the great zombie escapes – defeats, actually – he kills his giant zombie mother (long story) and walks off into the sunset, arm-in-arm with his girlfriend. If you’re a fan of zombie movies, you know just how rare an escape like this really is.

Night of the Living Dead

One of the recurring themes of zombie movies is that there IS no escape, and that any escape you might make from a horde of unthinking flesh-eating zombies is a temporary respite at best. This idea is captured perfectly in a famous sequence in Night of the Living Dead, in which a mother escapes a group of zombies by fleeing into her basement where she finds her daughter, who’s been turned into one of them too.
