Shaun of the Dead

Visible crew/equipment: At Barbara and Phil's house, just as the hooded zombie bites a chunk out of Phil's neck (before Shaun leaps over the car hood) the black mat with two long white marks is visible on the pavement, behind the second zombie (beside the car). It's gone in following shots.

Continuity mistake: When Shaun goes to the newsagents after the dead rise, he gets a drink out of the fridge, which has blood-stained hand prints on. He slips on what we assume is blood as he walks away, yet on the way in and as he leaves the shop you can see behind him that there is no blood or any other liquid on the floor.

Visible crew/equipment: In the Jaguar, after Ed explains that he already adjusted the seat and Shaun shouts, "Careful!," when Ed pulls out of the driveway a seated crewmember is reflected on the side of the car. This does not refer to the zombie extras.

Continuity mistake: When Shaun bursts into the shed, the whole door falls off the frame. Seconds later when we see the shot of Shaun and Ed with the bat and shovel, there's two pieces of wood attached to the hinge on the right side of the doorframe.

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie, where it shows the group of nodding zombies and the Shaun of The Dead logo is on the ground, look to your left, the zombie actor stops nodding and looks around him to see if the shot is still being filmed, and he immediately goes back to nodding. Look out for it, it's obvious.

Continuity mistake: After Ed and Shaun make the plan to save everyone, we see the close-up shot of the TV where the announcer is saying that nobody to try and save their friends and family. If you look at Shaun, you see the handle end of the cricket bat in his right hand, and he is facing the TV screen. In the shots immediately before and after that, Shaun is not only turned away from the TV, but the handle is in his left hand.

Continuity mistake: If you look closely as Shaun and the gang impersonate zombies, all the zombies around them are constantly moving between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Ed drives Phil's Jaguar, its rearview mirror disappears and reappears repeatedly.

Visible crew/equipment: When Shaun scales up the side of the building to Liz's apartment the second time, just as he places the cricket mallet on the floor and begins to climb through window, the steel tubing for the scaffold platform is visible just to his right.

Visible crew/equipment: When the blue tux zombie walks in through the ever unlocked front door, in the shot facing Ed and Shaun as they get up screaming, two blue tape T-marks are visible on the rug, between the couch and chair. It is visible in a couple of shots, but gone in the rest.

Shaun: Mum, what if I told you that on several occasions, he touched me. [pause.] That was made up, not true, shouldn't have said that.

Trivia

When at work, talking to the youngsters, Shaun mentions that "Ash" is also sick and can't come to work. A nod to the classic The Evil Dead (1981) trilogy where Bruce Campbell plays Ash, also a sales clerk.
