Today, Anna will be heading home after a long day at the hospital where she can cuddle up to her husband and forget about work. Tomorrow, she'll be running for her life as she finds herself being chased by bloodthirsty, ravenous zombies who can move as fast and fierce as animals. Banding together with a group of survivors, they'll defend themselves in the most unlikely of places: a mega shopping mall. But as the zombies increase in numbers before the mall, the group will have to find a way out before the undead find their way in.
When the undead rise, civilization will fall.

- Michael: Truck's not gonna make it to Fort Pastor. Steve: No, forget the truck. That place is fucked, man. Bloodbath city. Kenneth: How do you know? Norma: We just came from there. Kenneth: Is everyone there dead? Steve: Well, dead-ish. Kenneth: Is everyone there dead? Steve: Yeah, in the sense that they all sort of, uh... fell down... and then got up... and started eating each other.
Michael: So what's the plan? CJ: The plan is you drink a nice tall glass of Shut The Fuck Up!
Michael: Look, there's no point in arguing about this, all right? We need a solution. We need... we need to get some food over there. Steve: Yeah, OK, I have an idea. We draw straws and the loser runs across the lot with a ham sandwich. Ana: Could you be a bigger prick? Steve: You know, I think I could, but that's irrelevant. My question to you is, what's your plan?
[his last line] CJ: Fucking figures!
Steve: It's nice to see that you've all bonded through this disaster.
- Actors Ken Foree, Scott H. Reiniger and Tom Savini all appeared in the original 1978 version of this film, but playing different characters. Ken Foree delivers the tagline he delivered as "Peter" from the 1978 version of Dawn of the Dead; "When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth."
An extra on the DVD release for this film, "We interrupt this program", a fake newscast depicting the start and spread of the zombie infection, contains some characters whose dialog consists of lines from the original Dawn of the Dead (1978) and Night of the Living Dead (1968).
According to "the lost tape", which contains gun shop owner Andy's personal video diary (accessible as a bonus feature on the director's cut DVD), the main characters arrive at the mall early in the movie on May the 9th. Therefore, the movie opens a day earlier on May the 8th (Andy mentions that attacks on citizens by the undead had already started on the 7th). Andy makes his last entry just before he turns into one of the undead on June the 6th, and the movie ends on that same day (not including the footage during the end credits). This places the events of Dawn of the Dead in a space of just 29 days - and it begins and ends at dawn.
According to the director, Zack Snyder, on the DVD commentary he states that Scott Frank and Michael Tolkin both did uncredited rewrites on the script.
According to director Zack Snyder, Starbucks Coffee refused to be featured in the film.
