Land of the Dead

Trivia: The writers of Shaun of the Dead are in this film as a cameo. They are the zombies in the photo booth (around the time when Riley is in the gambling pit run by the midget).

Trivia: Tom Savini plays the "machete zombie." This is a callback to the original Dawn of the Dead (1978) where he played the living version of that character- a motorcycle riding hillbilly. He also did special makeup effects on Dawn and Day of the Dead (1985).

Other mistake: When the zombies come out of the river and start marching, look closely. The first zombies to come out wear wet clothes, but the ones in the back are dry.

Cholo: Still workin' for the man. Kaufman send you to kill me, huh?
Riley: Yes.
Cholo: Takes a true friend to stab you right in the front, doesn't it.

More quotes from Land of the Dead

Question: At the end, when Riley meets the 'freedom fighters', why aren't they bothered by the zombies who are still walking around, or the defences being completely useless, as the zombies tore the defences down or went through the river?

Answer: Riley feels that they have just the right to be there as the living do. Besides, those zombies survived all the missles and are coming to the city while Riley and the gang are leaving. So why waste the ammunition?
