The living dead have taken over the world, and the last humans live in a walled city to protect themselves as they come to grips with the situation.
George A. Romero was so impressed with Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead (2004), that he asked them to appear in this, the fourth part of his "Dead" series, and they appear as the photo-booth zombies in the carnival and barroom sequence. They also feature prominently in the artwork for the Unrated Director's Cut.
Yellow to red!
Motown: What the fuck does a Samoan know about hot-wiring a fucking car?
Pillsbury: 50,000 cars stolen in Samoa every year.
Motown: Well, a million in Detroit.
Pillsbury: Detroit has 50 million cars. Samoa, 50,000. Every one stolen.
In the scene when the stenches break down the wire mesh gate (about 37 minutes in), a guard in the tower throws a rope and slides down (to be eaten by stenches), even though a perfectly good ladder can be seen on the tower.
The old mid-1930s Universal Pictures logo begins the film.
The Unrated Director's Cut has a scene missing from the UK cinema release. Just before Cholo visits Kauffman for the final time he intervenes in a disturbance at Kauffman's neighbor's' house where we see that a man has hanged himself and his son tries to cut him down only to be bitten in the neck when his father reanimates as a zombie. Cholo destroys the zombie by bashing its head in while the distraught widow shrieks in the background.
