Plot hole: At Vera's funeral, Uncle Les spots Paquita and introduces himself as Lionel's uncle. But since he hasn't got a clue who Paquita is, why does he refer to Lionel instead of Vera. Wouldn't it be natural to introduce himself as Vera's brother, as it's her funeral? (00:40:25)

Plot hole: After Lionel locks zombie mum and the nurse in the basement, he tells his girlfriend that the went to the hospital in the nurse's car and she leaves, but wouldn't she notice that the car is still there?

Factual error: As the Thug Zombie is on top of the lawnmower and is getting hacked to bits, his body parts don't fly off. E.g. his arms would've flow out everywhere when the blade reached his shoulders, and the same goes for his head. (01:29:15)

Trivia: Director Peter Jackson makes a cameo appearance as the Mortuary Director's Assistant when Lionel's mom is being filled with embalming fluid. Whilst the fluid gushes out of Mum, Jackson grabs the sandwich he left beside the corpse and takes a bite. Doesn't he look odd without his beard?
