* TwoferTokenMinority: VillainProtagonist: Crockett and his fellow deserters are the same group of renegade National Guardsman who robbed the leads of ''Film/DiaryOfTheDead'', even though Crockett is a sergeant then a colonel that the previous film erroneously credited him as and his posse are different from those who appeared in this film (such as there was no sign of a female National Guard member in the previous movie unlike the appearance of Tomboy as a Black Lesbian is a threefer.in this film).

''Survival of the Dead'' is the sixth horror film in George A. Romero's Living Dead series which follows some characters who briefly appeared in ''Film/DiaryOfTheDead''. ''Survival of the Dead'' takes place in a desperate, nightmarish world where the dead walk the earth, relentlessly attacking the living. It is the story of Plum Island - a beautiful refuge whose isolation allows two powerful families to maintain a semblance of order in the wake of the zombie holocaust. But as the inhabitants slowly die off, the two clans become sharply divided: The O'Flynns believe that the undead must be destroyed without exception, while the Muldoons [[ZombieAdvocate insist that afflicted loved ones be kept "alive" until a cure is found]]. Into this situation wander a small group of National Guard troops who have decided to strike out on their own in an effort to survive.

* {{Gorn}}: Oh yeah, big time. Special commendations to a fire extinguisher blowing up a zombie's head, a flare gun lighting a zombie's head on fire, a zombie ripping some dude's scalp off. Oh, and the [[spoiler: poor horse being devoured. Ugh.]]

** NotUsingTheZedWord: Played straight as the slang "deadheads" becomes popular, but also subverted as people do use the word "zombie."

* Expy: Tomboy is reminiscent of Rocky from Romero's little-seen KNIGHRIDERS: an out-and-proud lesbian who's as tough as (if not tougher than) her straight/male cohorts.
