Trivia: Day of the Dead
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • The original Captain Rhodes was also in Dawn of the Dead as the cop who asks Stephen and Francine for a cigarette.
    • Ving Rhames, one of the main survivors in the Dawn of the Dead remake, appears in the Day of the Dead remake as a military officer.
    • For some reason in the remake, we have Naomi who has Took a Level in Badass and Lt. Fick going all veggie and green.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: The original movie's Captain Rhodes not only appeared in the original Dawn of the Dead as a deserter cop but also did the dub voice for Wargreymon.
  • Real-Life Relative: In the opening Jump Scare, Lori Cardille's husband played one of the zombie arms. Lori later remarked that he tried to swat away any hands that reached for her chest.
  • What Could Have Been: Romero's original script. Think of it as a mix between this film and Land of the Dead. Budget restrictions forced Romero to rewrite.
