Quotes:

  • Barbara: They're us. We're them and they're us.
     
  • Ben: You're boss down there. I'm boss up here.
     
  • Harry: You can't get any reception in the basement, dickhead!
     

Trivia:

  • The Macgruder zombie was a man that director Tom Savini saw in a diner and told him that he would make a great zombie, the man agreed. He showed up to all of the premieres.
     
  • The scene where Barbara shoots the black man in the chest and then finally in the head was not originally going to be in the film. We were supposed to see a hideous female zombie that Barbara saw as her mother and everyone was to tell her to "Shoot it!" and the mother looked at Barbara and asked "Where's Johnny, Barbara" and then their mother turned back into the hideous female zombie and she finally shoots it.
     
  • The autopsy zombie at the beginning of the film was not in the original script, but was something that was added by Tom Savini.
     
  • The black man who comes through the window after they throw Macgruder out was a cab driver who Tom Savini took a ride from.
     
  • Bill 'Chilly Billy' Cardille appears as a reporter in both the 1969 version and the remake.
