Trivia: At the end of the movie you see a cameo by Chris Martin supporting a foundation called Zomb-Aid. You also see him as a zombie at the pub. When Shaun and Liz come out from the cellar, he is the zombie walking right to left in front of a phone box.

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.

Visible crew/equipment: In the Jaguar, after Ed explains that he already adjusted the seat and Shaun shouts, "Careful!," when Ed pulls out of the driveway a seated crewmember is reflected on the side of the car. This does not refer to the zombie extras.

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.

Visible crew/equipment: When Shaun scales up the side of the building to Liz's apartment the second time, just as he places the cricket mallet on the floor and begins to climb through the window, the steel tubing for the scaffold platform is visible just to his right.

Continuity mistake: When Shaun bursts into the shed, the whole door falls off the frame. Seconds later when we see the shot of Shaun and Ed with the bat and shovel, there's two pieces of wood attached to the hinge on the right side of the doorframe.

Continuity mistake: As David is trying all the switches on the fuse box, he flicks a few off and you can see about a half of dozen of them flicked up. In the following shot only one switch is flicked up.

Revealing mistake: When Shaun tackles the blue robe zombie they both slam through the wood fence. The thick black protective vest that Shaun wears is very noticeable under his shirt and is actually visible below his shirt collar.

Continuity mistake: When throwing records at the zombies, watch when Ed throws one at the girl. As he throws it, her head is to the left but when the camera shows a close up when the record hits her, her head is to the RIGHT.

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.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Shaun meets Yvonne for the first time in the film, the nametag on his shirt is visible and then gets covered by his jacket as the shot changes between the characters.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, when the camera pans across the road towards Shaun's house, the silver Renault badge on the hood of Pete's car is missing, but when Shaun goes to work that morning (Pete sits in the car), it's there. The badge disappears again later in the film.

Continuity mistake: After Ed kills his first zombie, there is a blood stain on the right of his "I Got Wood" emblem on the t-shirt. But when they are throwing objects at the two zombies in the garden, this blood stain has somehow vanished.

Continuity mistake: When Shaun and Ed bring out the basket of mugs, pots and toasters etc., to throw at the two zombies, in one closeup we see Ed pick up a mug and a saltshaker, but in the next shot we see him throwing a wooden mugtree.

Trivia

When at work, talking to the youngsters, Shaun mentions that "Ash" is also sick and can't come to work. A nod to the classic The Evil Dead (1981) trilogy where Bruce Campbell plays Ash, also a sales clerk.
