Trivia

When Joe Cornish is on-screen, we see Lucy Akhurst (Sophie in season two of Spaced (1999)) as a zombie getting shot in the back. She's the blonde girl in the center of the screen, with Cornish to her right.


Quotes

John: Last orders, please!


Goofs

When Shaun and Ed are frisbeeing vinyl at their two zombierific backyard invaders, Shaun claims that a copy of New Order's "Blue Monday" is an original pressing. The first pressing of this 12" single in the UK was in a die-cut sleeve with a black insert, so the one in the film is obviously a later release.


Crazy Credits

The credits end with the incidental Mall Muzak from Dawn of the Dead (1978).
