A remake of George Romero's 1968 black-and-white classic that begins in a cemetery, as the recently-dead return to life - from an unknown cause - and attack the living as their prey.

Will they make it through the night...that the dead came back to life?

- There IS a fate worse than death.
- Barbara: They're us. We're them and they're us.
Ben: You're boss down there. I'm boss up here.
Ben: [after having just pulled Harry forcefully out of the cellar] Look, from now on, you leave that door open! We may want to get down there, we may NEED to get down there if those things break in! Harry: Yeah, sure! You want the best of both worlds, you get caged in up here, you wanna be able to run downstairs. Well that's not the way it's working, pal. You want to get in that cellar, you get in there now! Or you can forget it! Ben: I'm not boxing myself in down there, until there's absolutely no other choice! Harry: Yeah, well I'm not gambling with my daughters life! Look, if you wanna stay upstairs, go ahead, but don't count on me to help you! Ben: I'm not counting on you for *shit*, Cooper!
The Newsman: The scientific community is focusing on the phenomenon, specifically on that trance like state that seems to characterize the assailants. Clearly a behavioral disorder, but what could've caused so widespread and dramatic condition as the one we're facing tonight. The Newsman: We've heard speculation, on everything from the Ozone layer and chemical weapons, to uh... [laughs softly] The Newsman: voodoo mysticism and organisms from space. The Newsman: A biologist in Stockton, California, have released reports, stating the uh... [puts glasses on] The Newsman: bodies, of the recently dead, are returning to life. Driven by an unknown force which enables the brain to continue to function. The Newsman: Doctors at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, reject that theory, calling it preposterous beyond belief. They feel that the only reasonable explanation is a germ, that has a mind altering effect on it's victims. Though how such a germ could've been spread so quickly and across such a vast area, does remain a mystery. The Newsman: It's being called "Judgement Day" by religious leaders- [Harry pulls the plug]
Harry: You can't get any reception in the basement, dickhead.
- The nameplate on the house indicates an "M. Celeste." According to Tom Savini's commentary on the DVD, that's a direct reference to the "Mary Celeste", a ship that was discovered adrift at sea with the passengers and crew missing.
Bill 'Chilly Billy' Cardille appears as a reporter in both the 1968 version and the remake.
The scene where Barbara shoots a zombie in the chest and then finally in the head was not originally going to be in the film. We were supposed to see a hideous female zombie that Barbara saw as her mother. Everyone was supposed to tell her to shoot it. The mother would have looked at Barbara and asked "Where's Johnny, Barbara?", then turned back into the hideous female zombie, at which point Barbara would finally shoot.
The Macgruder zombie was a man that director Tom Savini saw in a diner and told him that he would make a great zombie, the man agreed. He showed up to all of the premieres.
The autopsy zombie at the beginning of the film was not in the original script, something that was added by Tom Savini.
