Shaun of the Dead

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. (00:25:35)

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. (00:49:00)

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. (00:33:05)

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. (01:09:25)

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. (00:32:45)

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. (00:40:50 - 00:41:40)

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. (00:12:40)

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. (00:06:55 - 00:24:25)

Trivia: While Shaun is feeling depressed, Ed is telling him his drinking plan for the next day. Listen out for clues to subsequent events: "Bloody Mary" - Checkout Girl, "Bite at the king's head" - Phillip, "Couple" - David and Di, "Little Princess" - Liz, "Stagger back" - impersonate zombies, "Bar For Shots" - firing rifle.
