Dawn of the Dead

Question: Who is the brunette girl at the end of the movie sitting on Steveā€˜s lap wearing a bikini? Where did she come from? She was not part of the group.

Answer: Some woman he met before the outbreak. The clips we see are not all from the survivors' recordings.

Question: Is it true that this film is a blast against religion?

Answer: I doubt it's "anti-religion," although the organ-player says that he couldn't believe in god, especially with all of the death and suffering that was going on in the world. The televangelist is the closest you're going to get for religion setting a "bad example" in the movie.

Question: This is driving me crazy because every time I watch it, I come up with a different answer but can someone tell me who the two guys are that are playing basketball during the 'Down With The Sickness' montage?

Answer: It's Terry and Kenneth.

Question: I noticed on Andy's final moments video on the DVD, the month on the camera goes from May(When he explains the Hollywood Squares game.) To June when he finally turns to a zombie. Was the movie supposed to take place in a month or is that just a simple mistake?

Answer: Yes, part of the point of Andy's video is to give the viewer the timespan of the film.

Question: During the opening credits, a song by Johnny Cash is played called, 'When the Man Comes to Town', or something like that. Is it the original song (i.e. not changed at all for the purposes of the film)? Also, can anyone tell me what Bible passage is recited at the end of it? Thanks.

Answer: The song is called "The Man Comes Around" and it is the original song that Johnny Cash sang - there is no changes to the song for the movie. The Bible passage is from Revelations when the passage speaks of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Question: I can understand how zombie saliva can spread the disease, but how can scratches spread the disease?

Answer: If the scratch itself draws blood and the zombie which inflicted it had his own (or another's infected) blood or saliva, the victim then becomes infected too.

Question: Were the interior scenes shot inside a real shopping mall or a set?

Answer: Most of the interior scenes were shot in a mall in Burlington, near Toronta.

Question: Why do the survivors wear nothing but short-sleeved T-shirts and other flimsy clothes that can be easily bitten through? If you were fighting zombies who were trying to bite you, wouldn't you try to cover up your arms and face, even a leather jacket and a pair of thick gloves would help?

Answer: Yes, but protective clothing would also hinder your movements, making it harder to escape.

Question: Does anyone remember how Kenneth (Ving Rhames) got cut? I thought he was bitten, but he never died so I must have missed something.

Answer: He got cut fighting the zombie in the water fountain at the mall's front door, on a piece of metal that was part of the fountain.

Question: Was it ever explained why the zombies massed outside the mall?

Answer: It was actually explained in both versions that the zombies went to the mall because it was a place of familiarity, a place that they could remember even if they didn't know why.

Question: Where did the original zombies come from? I understand that if you were bitten, you became a zombie, but how did the very first zombie come about?

Answer: The very first zombies would have been dead people that rose from their graves, but part of the horror of the story is that we don't know exactly why this is happening or how to stop it.

Question: During the montage scene, the movie plays a cover of the Disturbed song, 'Down with the Sickness,' that was all happy-go-lucky. However, my friend and I cannot for the life of us find a soundtrack or song listing for this movie. If anyone knows the name of this song, we really, really want to know.

Answer: This is 'Richard Cheese & Lounge Against the Machine.' They do hilarious covers, from this song to Sir Mix-A-Lot's 'Baby Got Back' to the White Stripes' 'Fell in Love With A Girl.'

Question: How did they know which boat to find at the docks? I don't remember the guy whose boat it was telling them which one was his.

Answer: Steve (the guy with the boat) probably either had the name of the boat on the key ring floater or told them at some point during the bus-fixing montage.

Trivia

When Kenneth and Andy play chess, Kenneth is using the Alamo chess set. This is rather symbolic, because basically it's the same situation - a handful of survivors outnumbered by the enemy's forces.
