In the DVD extra, Andy's lost tapes, we see Andy get bitten as he is trying to get the food from the dog. He dies in front of his camera and rises again and knocks the camera off angle, however in the actual movie, he is shown standing on top of the roof holding up a sign with blood on it, and he appears to turn just seconds later. This cannot be proved, however in the lost tapes he never returns to the roof to hold up the sign.
During the end credits, intercut with the closeup clips of zombies, there is a very brief clip similar to the infamous Paris Hilton tape, with its telltale green "nightvison" effect.
On the Region-1 unrated DVD the naked woman in the beginning is "hidden" from added digital blood on the car windshield. However, on international releases of the director's cut, there is no blood and the woman is fully visible. It is still uncertain as to whether or not this was a choice by director Zach Snyder or by Universal. The BluRay versions throughout the world only contain the US censored version of the director's cut. However, the Nordik unrated director's cut BluRay release does not censor the naked woman and she can be seen in full. (It is English audio and subtitles can be switched off via the pop-menu during playback).
