Dawn of the Dead (1978) trivia:
The gun shop in the film was never part of the Monroeville Mall. Director, George A. Romero shot the scenes in a gun shop in downtown Pittsburgh and edited in the footage.
The two zombie kids who attack Peter in the airport chart house are played by the real-life niece and nephew of makeup artist, Tom Savini.
The zombie children are the only zombies in all of Romero's movies that run and never do the trademark "zombie shuffle".
The voice of George A. Romero's wife, Christine Forrest, can be heard on a pre-recorded announcement in the mall.
The fake blood was a mixture of food coloring, peanut butter and cane sugar syrup.
Some of the zombies are actual amputees.
This is Romero's favorite film in the "Dead" series.
