- What Could Have Been:
- Concerning the sequels, Don Calfa auditioned for the role of Doc Mandel in the sequel (the part ultimately went to Philip Bruns) and was set to play Colonel Peck in III, but had to pull out of production due to personal reasons.
- Calfa also penned an outline for a proposed sequel entitled The Revenge of the Living Dead. The proposal revolved around Ernie, Casey, Chuck, Tina and Spider (Burt would have been hit with Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome) dealing with increased zombie hordes in order to escape to freedom. Along the way, they would have figured out how to use Ernie's embalming techniques to control the zombified Freddy.
