Continuity mistake: At the very beginning, when Luis attacks Ana, she escapes into the bathroom and falls over into the tub. The rug on the floor is folded back in the shot from the top, but it is flat when Ana steps out of the tub.


Continuity mistake: When the group goes to rescue Nicole from Andy's shop it it is evening, when they return and must evacuate the mall it's night, but soon as they clear the horde in the parking lot it becomes early morning.

Continuity mistake: About 3/4 of the way through, CJ is on the roof of the gun shop and blows up a tank of propane to clear the zombies so everyone can escape. The truck that was blocking the door was their only way in and out of the shop. On their way into the gun shop you see two zombies follow them through the truck to the shop's entrance, but when he blasts the propane, somehow I guess they get cooked. My nitpick is that when CJ goes the same path as the others, there is a dead zombie blocking his exit through the truck's door. If the others already went out that same door they would have had to move that burned zombie to get through the truck.


Continuity mistake: When Ana hands over the file to Cora, Cora grabs the file on the side. When it cuts she grabs it on the top of the file. (00:01:20)
