Actor Mike Kovac slept with his western pistol under his pillow during the entire shooting schedule.
When we first encounter the zombies at the logging site, a tarp is visible in the background that reads "Thumm Logging." This is a reference to Bill Thumm, mentor and teacher to the creators of True Hype Productions Inc.
When Rob Grant's character exits the classroom after the alarm goes off, a poster titled "Refuge" is visible in the background. This is a poster for a stage production that actor Jesse Wheeler was involved in before shooting. A corporate logo had to be covered up in the shot, so Jesse Wheeler went to his car and produced the poster that had been laying on the floor for the past few months. Jesse Wheeler is visible on the right hand side of the poster.
When Mike accidentally shoots at Chris on the street a car is visible on the left of the screen with a woman's legs laying outside the opened driver-side door. These are the legs of Laura Moxon, head of the make-up department.
One of the zombies that Mike Valentine shoots from the bathroom window is a small girl holding a gardening trowel. This is a reference to the character 'Karen Cooper' from Night of the Living Dead (1968).
The most amount of takes done for any shot in the film was at the most three and on average one. This was because the crew could not afford more film stock.
Chris and Sarah's vehicle still ran perfectly after the wreck and was later able to be re-sold as is, with bullet hole in the windshield.
At no point in time in the film are the zombies actually referred to as zombies by any of the characters.
On the 13th day of shooting the primary camera was broken when it fell from a tripod. In the end 5 separate cameras were used to finish principal photography as they kept breaking. The low point was using a hand cranked Russian camera.
During the classroom scene, the sound mixer, Allan Cunningham was placed as one of the students sitting at a desk. He is clearly visible mixing during the scene.
