HORROR MOVIE FACTS:
28 DAYS LATER FACTS:
1:The film was shot almost entirely in sequence; only pickups and a few reshoots were shot out of sequence.
2: Athletes were cast as the Infected because of how important physicality is to them. Danny Boyle felt that since athletes can do things other people can't, they would be interesting when translated into the movements of the Infected.
3: Ewan McGregor was the original choice to play Jim. After that didn't work out, the role was offered to Ryan Gosling, who had a scheduling conflict.
4: Stephen King is a huge fan of the movie and paraphrases one of Selena's lines in his novel Doctor Sleep, "he needs us more than we need him".
5: Jim(Cillian Murphy) spends thirty percent of the movie either shirtless or nude.
6: The tunnel sequence took two days to shoot.
1: Unusually for a Hollywood production, this film does not feature a musical score.
2: It took 4 hours for Doug Jones to get into his full-body prosthetic. His role required him to film for just one day.
1: Abigail Breslin and Woody Harrelson's conversation in the Hummer scene about Hannah Montana was ad-libbed.

6: John Carpenter turned down a chance to direct.
1: The special effects department went through twenty-five gallons of fake blood during the shoot.
2: Originally director Stuart Gordon wanted to shoot the movie in black and white on 16mm film to give the film a gritty quality.
3: The "brains" in the severed head were made up of steer meat by-products, ground beef and fake blood and when they shot the scene in the autopsy room with the severed head being thrown out the door and then smashing onto the hallway wall, the crew were all behind the cameras with garbage bags over their clothes because no one knew just how much the brains would splatter.
4: Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, Robert Sampson, and director Stuart Gordon visited an insane asylum and morgue as preparation for the film.
DAWN OF THE DEAD 1978 FACTS:
1: Tom Savini choose the gray color for the zombies' skin, since Night of the Living Dead (1968) was in B&W and the zombie skin-tone was not depicted. He later said it was a mistake, because many of them ended up looking quite blue on film.
2:The scene between Roger and Peter in the trucks when they are kidding each other about their height was entirely improvised by the two actors.
3:The voice of Christine Forrest (George A. Romero's wife) can be heard on a pre-recorded announcement in the mall ("Attention all shoppers...").
4:The bit in the movie where Roger slides down between the escalators was Scott H. Reiniger's idea.
5: Some of the actors playing zombies in the movie would frequently get drunk at a late-night bar called the Brown Derby, which was in the Monroeville Mall. One night they stole a golf cart and crashed into a marble pillar, causing $7,000 worth of damage.
RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD
1: (at around 8 mins) The glass breaking on top of the chemical drum during the "melting tarman" scene at the beginning of the credits wasn't planned at all. It just happened to shatter due to the heat of the effects at the perfect time.
