Revealing mistake: When Lionel has just finished massacring the zombies, Thug Zombie appears at the top of the stairs. If you look closely you can see his real pair of legs near the window Lionel flew out of earlier. (01:28:35)

Revealing mistake: When Paquita discovers the zombies tied up in the basement and convinces Lionel to kill them, he gets the "poison" and injects them with it. Look closely: the shelf that he gets it off is the same as the VETS' shelf in a much earlier scene (Even the bottle of tranquilizer that Lionel dropped is back 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?
