I don't know how many of you from Louisville remember the 1980's film, "The return of the living dead". Its like one of the best zombie films of all times that was set in Louisville but unfortunately wasn't filmed in Louisville. Not sure how many of you are old heads and or remember that era or time in Louisville. Just wondering did the movie makers get the setting right. Even though a Majority of that move was filmed in Los Angeles did any of the sets remind you or actually look like Louisville in the mid 80's? Did the City have that Industrial, creepy or even dirty feel in the mid 80's? Is there areas of the City that this Great Zombie move of all time could actually have been filmed in the 80' or even maybe today??? Also how much popularity did the City actually get from the move???

Louisville DID have a bit of a creepy industrial feel then based on pictures I have seen. Some of our longtime natives could maybe help here. Certainly in the 90s, when I discovered the city, it had a bit of the feel....

but now outside parts of the west end and near the airport....it is not like that at all. Cleaned up, manicured, parks everywhere, and very gentrified. The city has done a 180 in a good way since then.

Louisville is home to one of the largest zombie walks in the USA...ATL and MPLS also claim this, but Louisville's shows higher attendance, although it is not official with Guinness.

I have to be honest, I love Louisville, but it seems to be a bit on the weird side anyway... Very Unique City

It would be great if they did a Return of the Living Dead remake or reboot like they have with so many other movies. Would be great if they actually filmed on site this time and used Louisville again or Atlanta for its setting.

Agreed. I would love to see who actually has the biggest zombie walk. I have been to both Louisville's and Atlanta's...they felt about the same size actually. it is probably hard to quantify

BTW, Louisville's walk is actually in August. I would highly recommend you come up and check it out. Always awesome
