Day of the Dead

Factual error: When Steel (the bearded soldier) is cornered by the zombies, he realizes he's doomed and shoots himself in the head. The problem is he is using a Colt M1911 series handgun and the hammer was up when he shot himself. The gun has to be cocked before it can be fired. (01:30:00)

Revealing mistake: In the very beginning when we are flying over the dead town in a helicopter, look closely at one of the very first shots of the "empty" city. On one of the left side streets you can see a car driving down the road. It's not a character mistake because she is looking hard out the window and should have spotted the moving car.

John: You want to put some kind of explanation down here before you leave? Here's one as good as any you're likely to find. We're bein' punished by the Creator. He visited a curse on us. So that man could look at... what Hell was like. Maybe He didn't want to see us blow ourselves up, put a big hole in the sky. Maybe He just wanted to show us He's still the Boss Man. Maybe He figure, we was gettin' too big for our britches, tryin' to figure His shit out.

Trivia: Real pig guts were used for the scene where Joe Pilato (Rhodes) is ripped in half. The guts were accidentally left out of the freezer for the weekend and so were rotten when they were used. The stench was so bad that everybody ran off the set once they finished.
