* EldritchAbomination: Quite possibly the thing in the crate. It's ReallySevenHundredYearsOld and apparently can hibernate a LONG time to stay alive without food or water. That doesn't stop it from waking up very, very hungry.

#''The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill'': Backwoods hick Jordy Verrill (King) thinks his financial woes are solved when a meteor crashes into his front yard, and he intends to sell it to a local college professor. But Jordy's hopes for both fortune and survival are dashed when the meteor turns out to contain a parasitic alien plant. Partially inspired by Creator/HPLovecraft's ''The Colour Out of Space''.

** "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill" was loosely inspired by Music/CreedenceClearwaterRevival's "It Came Out Of The Sky", a song where a farmer finds an object that fell from space (though the plot of the song is otherwise very different) - the main character in the CCR song is named Jody, which of course sounds similar to Jordy. In addition, the title of the segment is a play on Music/BobDylan's "The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carrol". And as noted above, Creator/HPLovecraft's story ''The Colour Out Of Space''.

** At the beginning of "They're Creeping Up on You!", you can hear the ragtime music that was used in ''Film/{{The Evil Dead|1981}}''.

* AdaptationDistillation: Though it's not an official adaptation ([[Film/ECComics and there were such films already]]), many feel Romero and King perfectly captured the spirit of the old EC comics, right down to the movie being deliberately over the top and full of {{Narm}}.
