* FakeAmerican: John Sumner, the actor who portrayed Neville, is actually a Brit.
** A lot of the extras and smaller roles are also FakeAmerican as some of the film was shot in New Zealand and utilized local actors.



* HeyItsThatGuy: [[SavedByTheBell Zack Morris]] moved to Tennessee and became a local cop. WMG says that's why we never see Zack's mom on SavedByTheBell - she got sucked up by a tornado.

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: ''Technically'' averted. In the actual events of the film, Stu the (black) security guard, is the first to die on-screen. However, the first death of the movie is in the first 5 minutes, but it's a ghost story/flashback so YMMV if it counts.
