Added DiffLines:

** In the original script, Sutherland escapes from Fiddler's Green with several other wealthier residents, by bribing Kaufman's private pilot to take them away in his helicopter instead, leaving Kaufman behind to be attacked by Cholo and Big Daddy, but this scene was cut after Dennis Hopper ad-libbed shooting Sutherland in one scene and it made it into the final cut.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorCameo: George A. Romero's voice can be heard as one of the puppets in the children's show.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Romero originally wanted to include more explicit references to the previous ''Dead'' films, even trying to use stock footage from ''Dawn'' and ''Day'' in the opening credits. This was nixed due to the (still on-going) rights complications involving those films. This is why Creator/TomSavini's character is credited as "Machete Zombie" instead of "Blades", the name of his character in ''Dawn'' whose role he's reprising.

Added DiffLines:

* CaliforniaDoubling: Though set in Pennsylvania like its predecessors, the film was shot almost entirely in Toronto, Canada. This makes it the first film in the ''Dead'' series to be shot outside the state, and outside of the United States as a whole.
* FakeAmerican: Aside from Creator/JohnLeguizamo and Creator/DennisHopper, nearly the entire cast is Canadian. The major exceptions, Simon Baker and Creator/AsiaArgento, are respectively Australian and Italian.

Added DiffLines:

* MultipleLanguagesSameVoiceActor: Asia Argento dubbed herself as Slack in the Italian dub of the movie.


* ActorAllusion: This isnít the first time [[Creator/JohnLeguizamo John Leguizamo]] and [[Creator/DennisHopper Dennis Hopper]] [[Film/SuperMarioBros went at each other]].

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeDearBoy: Simon Baker took on his role in the film because he'd never appeared in a horror movie before and because he wanted to work with Creator/GeorgeARomero.
* BannedInChina: The film was banned in Ukraine.
* RealLifeRelative: Creator/GeorgeARomero's daughter is the soldier who shoots the zombie on the electrified fence.
* RefittedForSequel: The film was partly based on the original, much longer script for ''Film/DayOfTheDead1985''.
* WorkingTitle: ''Twilight of the Dead'', ''Dead City'', ''Dead Reckoning'' and ''Night of the Living Dead: Dead Reckoning''.
