Hunting for Nostalgia at Living Dead Weekend

Join host Nick Bartley as he once again finds himself out of his element at a Zombie Convention. To add to the horror, Nick gets the inside scoop on the recently announced Night of the Living Dead 2 movie…

Season three of Hunting Nostalgia got off to a goofy start a few weeks back when Nick visited the Mars-Bethel Golf Course for some goofy golf (AND CANDY) with his Uncle Joe, then went toy hunting a garage sale. Well, episode two took a scary turn…

Watch Hunting Nostalgia Season 3 Episode 2

In this episode Nick attends the Living Dead Weekend at the Monroeville Mall in Monroeville, Pennsylvania. Living Dead Weekend is the must go to convention for zombies and especially for the die hard fans of the Night of the Living Dead franchise. For anyone not aware, the Monroeville Mall was the major location for the film Dawn of the Dead. Best part is that Nick barely knows where he is, continually calling the event “Living Dead Days”.

The convention allows fans to spend time inside the infamous “movie set” and rub elbows with the stars and zombies from different films.

Despite not knowing much about horror movies Nick is able to interview a zombie named Justice, learn that soon anyone will be able to spend the night in Buffalo Bill’s House from Silence of the Lambs, and catch up with Bob from Time Bomb Toys. All this and he is able to hunt down some retro action figures and of course we get a Moment of Nostalgia about horror films from Elvira Taylor.

The big news is that Nick got to spend some time chatting with the crew currently working on Night of the Living Dead 2. He caught up with Writer/Director Marcus Slabine, Producer Vincent Petrosini, and Producer Steve Conca. They had just finished their panel where they made the announcement that the three surviving characters from Day of the Dead would return for this project. Actors Jarlath Conroy, Lori Cardille, and Terry Alexander came out to what seemed to be the largest cheer of the weekend. Not much is yet known about the plot of the movie, or if the actors will indeed reprise their roles as Bill, Sarah, and John but Night of the Living Dead 2 promises to deliver a sense of nostalgia to the Living Dead community.

A few months back our team here at the Toy Store Guide virtually met with the team from Hunting Nostalgia. It seemed obvious that we shared a goal and a vision when it comes to the Toy Community, Toy Stores, and a love for sharing that passion. It would only make sense for the two entities to combine forces!

We have been working behind the scenes with them, helping them produce the show and other projects. It was great to meet and work with Nick and TJ in person at Living Dead Weekend.
