Continuity mistake: In the Pacific Playland scene, Wichita and Little Rock are seen riding a Swinging Ship when all of a sudden, zombies begin to pile over the park's fence. In the next scene, the two girls are shown running down a stretch of walkway shooting at the zombies that are chasing them. When the camera is focused on the zombies pursuing the girls, in the background (top left corner) you can see the Ship ride sitting still. After the camera gets a shot of the girls, it goes back to the shot of the zombies and the Ship is now moving in full swing. The next time the zombies are shown, the Ship is sitting still again. There was no time between shots for the ride to have started and stopped so quickly.
Other mistake: When Columbus is face-to-face with the clown zombie, he looks up at Wichita, who is on the ride, stuck at the top of the tower. Columbus looks almost straight up at her, but when Wichita looks to Columbus for help, she should look almost straight down, but instead she looks straight ahead. There is no other reason why she would have looked straight ahead because a) Columbus was directly below her, b) Little Rock and Tallahassee were to her right, and c) she almost perpetually had her eyes on the zombie climbing the tower towards her.virtual-toast
Continuity mistake: When Columbus and Tallahassee first meet, they are sitting in the car and Tallahassee picks up his bottle of 'alcohol'. The label on the bottle changes sides depending on camera angle. From Columbus' side the label is facing toward the front of the car (with Tallahassee's fingers over it), but from Tallahassee's side the label is facing towards the driver's window. It then changes back and forth depending on camera angle. (00:09:20)SteveToon
Continuity mistake: Woody Harrelson locks himself in the booth at Pacific Playland and locks/closes the security screens on three sides. After he is surrounded by zombies, one of the side cages has been pushed opened a bit, leaving quite a gap. The scene pans around to various angles as Woody fires away, and in a subsequent shot, the screen is shut again. With both his hands full, he couldn't have shut it.
Continuity mistake: When the younger sister (Little Rock) is picking up the fake ring in front of the gas station, behind her is a PT Cruiser getting gas. Immediately when the gas station attendant comes out to speak to her, the car has vanished. There was no possible way the car was driven away in the split second scene switch.Anthony Lemons
Factual error: When Tallahassee and Columbus open the crashed Hostess truck, a huge pile of individual Sno-Balls packages pour out. A real delivery truck would have the product packaged in boxes on shelves in the back of the truck. Even if a Hostess employee was frantically filling the truck before he fled for some reason, Hostess products come from the factory and distributor in boxes.Grumpy Scot
