Awards:  None

This film marks the first time that a character from a previous Living Dead film returns to star in a sequel, with 'Alan van Sprang' as Sarge "Nicotine" Crockett having been seen in Diary of the Dead, and also playing Brubaker in Land of the Dead. The only two other times this has come close to happening was Tom Savini reprising his role of Blades from Dawn of the Dead as a cameo in Land of the Dead in zombie form, and Joseph Pilato playing an unnamed police captain in Dawn of the Dead returning to play Captain Rhodes in Day of the Dead.
