When Rhodes (Joe Pilato) is torn apart and screams "Choke on it!, he's not really acting. The animal entrails used for this scene were stored in in a refrigerator that was accidentally unplugged over a long hot weekend and were quite ripe and rotting when filming resumed. Being a low budget film, they went ahead and used the rotting parts for his death scene. The actors portraying the zombies all had cotton balls and other items in their noses to block the horrendouse smell, but Joe Pilato had to suffer through it and not vomit while shooting the scene. The look of horror on his face is quite real!
