Continuity mistake: When Ben, Tom and Judy are trying to escape from the zombies in the truck, it is dark, but when the zombies are giving chase, dawn is breaking, and when the truck gets to the gas pump it is now dark once more. This is just one of a number of scenes in this film that change from darkness to daylight and vice-versa.
Everyone is killed except for Ben. Ironically, he ends up surviving by locking himself in the basement that he was so against. He sleeps in the basement and in the morning he comes out. He is mistaken for a zombie and shot by a group of people killing the zombies.
Trivia: Duane Jones was the first African American to play a lead in a horror film. He also taught at and became the head of the Theatre Department at Old Westbury college in Long Island, New York. He remained there until he unfortunately passed away in 1988.
