Behind the Scenes

Allusions and References

  • The zombies depicted here are a combination of the slow-moving kind of George A. Romero and the brain-hungry kind from The Return of the Living Dead.

Memorable Moments

  • Chett freaks out when he kicks off one of the zombie's heads, thinking it was an actor.


  • When Chett knocks the zombie's head off, Matthew runs away with Roger about to run away. When it cuts back, they're both back to standing where they were.
  • When the zombies begin walking toward Scampi at the end of the act, there is visible sunlight, but when the next act starts, it's dark despite the zombies having not advanced any further.
  • When the zombies get into the cafeteria, the one that got decapitated has its head back on its body.


  • Chett: It's not my fault! His head was loose or something! He was supposed to snap back. Dear God, why didn't he snap back?! (runs out of the room and peeks back in) Don't tell mom.
