During the scene when Chris and J.C. are confronted, one shot shows the second-unit AD clearly in the background waving towards people off camera to stay out of the shot. See more »
Okay, so we put you up to it... but we said the Phi Omega Gamma house, *not* the Kappa Delta sorority. Do you know the difference?
It's all Greek to me.

Originally filmed with an ending in which Ray Cameron walks out of the house as a zombie, then collapses in front of a cemetery as the slug-like creatures escape from his body and head toward the graves; the alien spacecraft from the opening scene then arrives and begins to search the graveyard with spotlights. For the original theatrical and home video releases this was replaced with a briefer ending in which a slug-creature jumps out of the zombie-dog's mouth as the characters watch the sorority house burn down. The version with the original ending was used for some TV airings and later released as the Director's Cut (which includes the re-shot ending as a separate bonus feature). See more »
Viewing this particular film as a straight horror movie is a mistake. When I first saw this film (in 1989 or so) I thought it was a terrible horror movie and shut it off about half way through. I was under the impression it was a straight up zombie movie from the box art. There where some attempts at humor that fell flat. My problem was I was expecting "Dawn of the Dead" (or at least Day). On second enconter (around 1995) I laughed myself silly. I got the joke. The script is actually a joyous tribute to 50's-80's "B-Movies", Mad science, aliens, couples necking in a convertable (in black and white no less) and a catchphrase spewing hard boiled gumshoe. With out the preconceived notions I found this film quite charming. While not the best of the comedy/horror mix (Scream, American Werewolf in London...) this is a decent attempt at the cross-genre and best enjoyed with freinds.
