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.
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: If you look closely as Shaun and the gang impersonate zombies, all the zombies around them are constantly moving between shots.
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: When Ed and Shaun use Pete's car, the rearview mirror changes its characteristics between shots. Things such as being large with perfect 90° angles to being smaller and having curvier edges or being attached to the black unit on the car ceiling to being attached to the windshield.
Continuity mistake: In the pub scene towards the end when the zombies are taking over, Ed lights up a cocktail, but then in the next shot when zombies break through the door and attack him, the rag is unlit.
Continuity mistake: The field in front of Liz's flat is large and unfenced. Yet, when Shaun climbs up to her window, there is a fence not more than ten feet away. He couldn't have run round the side as the sound of the zombies are coming from the same direction.
Revealing mistake: When Ed hits the zombie in the eye with the record, you can see for a split second that the record misses the zombie completely, then the camera cuts and a different, breakaway (or CGI) record hits the zombie.
