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)

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. (00:45:15)

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)

Trivia: When Shaun is on the phone to his mum, Ed shouts "We're coming to get you Barbra". This is a tribute to the famous "they're coming to get you Barbra" line from Night of the Living Dead (1968) .

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.

Trivia: Throughout the film, several of the original music scores from Dawn of the Dead (1978) are played, such as during the Universal logo and during Shaun's several plans for picking up Liz and his mother.

Question: When Dianne leaves the Winchester to try to help David, what's the background music that plays in the following battle? Does that song have a name so I could look it up, or is there an original soundtrack where I can find it?

Chosen answer: "Burn Down the Sun" by Daniel Mudford & Pete Woodhead, according to this site: http://musicfromfilm.com/movies/shaunofthedead.php. According to http://www.discogs.com/Various-Shaun-Of-The-Dead-Music-From-The-Motion-Picture/release/402748, it's not on the soundtrack (as it's just background music).
