*Zombie extras were paid $1.00 a day for their services and given a hat that said 'I Was a Zombie in Day of the Dead.' I wonder how much those would go for on EBay these days?
*Joseph Pilato- aka bad-ass Captain Rhodes- would later go on to be a voice in the cartoon series Digimon: Digital Monsters. The man who uttered the words "choke on them" as zombies ate his guts doing a voice on a Japanese cartoon- what are the odds?!?
*One line from the film- "Hello- Is anyone there?" is sampled in a Gorrilaz song entitled 'M1A1.' The same group also samples dialogue for this film- and Dawn of the Dead- in the song 'Hip Albatross.'
