Continuity mistake: When Peter has just killed the child zombies and another with a messed face is in the doorway, we see Steven outside aiming a rifle and it is cloudy, dreary weather. Peter dives out the way and lands by a window and we see that it is now pitch black, then Roger steps in and shoots the zombie from outside and it's only just overcast.
Revealing mistake: When they lock the mall doors using the car, Peter is giving cover fire while the doors are being locked. Notice when the camera cuts to one of the shots from the scopes point of view he blows a zombie's head off and the blood splatters on the scope and is visible when the zombie drops.
Other mistake: During the truck scene, when zombies attack Roger the first time, as Peter shoots the zombie that Roger is fighting, he supports his M16 from its carrying handle, thus blocking the rear sight (which is located in said handle). He does this in several scenes throughout the movie, but in the truck scene accuracy is crucial.
Continuity mistake: Just after the raiders manage to get into the mall, one raider uses his sledgehammer to knock a zombie wearing a black t-shirt off his feet. 5 seconds later, the same zombie can be seen walking past the same raider.
Visible crew/equipment: When Peter and Stephen have finished locking the whole row of "pretty indestructible" mall doors, Peter sets the security alarm. Soon after, the team drives off. A few zombies are shot on the go. As a wounded Roger skids the car to a stop in front of some exit doors, it passes an undecorated space with glass doors right before "John's Shoe Repair." There's a cameraman standing in the back of the space, with another two crew-members squatting down next to him against the wall. (01:25:35)
Revealing mistake: When Stephen is trying to climb out the elevator after having been shot, a group of zombies attack him and the first zombie we see bites his leg. In this closeup of Stephen's leg being bitten, the tube that pumps out the blood is protruding out his trousers, obviously leading up his thigh.Jack Vaughan
Continuity mistake: When the bikers are stealing the zombie's wallet notice Blades in the background cheering his buddy on while just standing next to a zombie. (01:48:30)
