Hell of the Living Dead/Fun Facts
From The Grindhouse Cinema Database
- Stock footage from the film La vallée (1972) was used for the native scenes.
- Claudio Fragasso, the writer of the screenplay, also directed one half of the movie, he said in an interview.
- In the first draft, Claudio Fragasso had followed the idea of an entire Third World made up of an army of zombies against whom the armed forces of the industrialized nations would have had to fight. However, the script had to be altered considerably due to budget limitations.
- The documentary footage of the New Guinea tribe is real footage filmed of a burial service. The rest of the footage can be seen on the documentary OF THE DEAD (DES MORTS).
