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. (00:46:30)Super Grover
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. (00:03:45)
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.

Visible crew/equipment: When the blue tux zombie walks in through the ever unlocked front door, in the shot facing Ed and Shaun as they get up screaming, two blue tape T-marks are visible on the rug, between the couch and chair. It is visible in a couple of shots, but gone in the rest. (00:31:50)Super Grover
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 should 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. (00:37:00)
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.
