Trivia: Dawn of the Dead

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Peter later goes on to be Kenan Thompson's dad.
  • Throw It In: Many of Tom Savini's brilliant makeup effects were improvised. And they look great.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Traumatic C-Section: During the making of the movie, a pregnant extra suggested her character should be shown having her baby ripped out by the zombies. Romero and SFX guru Tom Savini gave a resounding "No. Just... No" Reaction.
    • The film originally ended with all the characters dying, with Peter and Francine both committing suicide - Peter by shooting himself in the head and Francine by getting her head sliced off by the helicopter propeller.
