* BilingualBonus: During the second "walk to the shop" sequence, as Shaun gets to the drinks fridge the cheerful Indian music on the radio is suddenly interrupted by a rather frantic-sounding person urgently delivering what sounds like a rather important message about what's going on that Shaun might want to listen to... except it's in untranslated, unsubtitled Hindi. Of course, even the most lazy viewer has probably picked up enough of the MeaningfulBackgroundEvents in that particular sequence to figure out exactly what the message is...

** As a result of being severely hungover, Shaun goes to get some breakfast from the bodega across the street and utterly fails to notice the Zombie Apocalypse raging around him.

* UnfoldingPlanMontage: Shaun and Ed devise a plan to collect Shaun's friends, mom, and stepdad, and find safety "until this whole thing blows over." [[ZigZagged Then the plan changes and a revised montage plays accordingly.]]

* EskimosArentReal: A BrickJoke is an argument between Shaun and Ed whether or not the rifle at the Winchester is real. The owner says it is, but he also says dogs can't look up. [[spoiler:After the rifle fires, proving Ed right...]]
--> '''Shaun:''' Alright. But dogs ''can'' look up!

* BadBadActing: The group's zombie imitation during the PretendWereDead scene is very amateurish but gets the job done.

* [[PretendWereDead Pretend We're Dead]]: Done by the main characters to get to the pub. Their cover is blown when Ed gets a call on his mobile. The picture for that trope.

** All of the TV presenters & news reporters seen when Shaun's flipping through the channels are actual TV presenters & news reporters from the UK. {{Coldplay}} also appear briefly in the sequence at the end of the film being interviewed.

* BrickJoke: Enough to have [[BrickJoke/ShaunOfTheDead its own page]].

to:

* BrickJoke: Enough A lot.
** Shaun visits the local convenience store just after the ZombieApocalypse begins (without his noticing). He doesn't find the shopkeeper there, but he yells out that he came up short and will pay him back. The next day, he's surrounded by zombies. One of them is the shopkeeper who has his palm turned up as if
to have [[BrickJoke/ShaunOfTheDead its own page]].say "You owe me money".
** Shaun threw the flowers he bought for his mum into the trashcan just outside the Winchester during the first act. They're the first thing to fall out when David dumps it. Shaun's mum picks them up and notices the tag on them, figuring Shaun had bought them for her.
** At first, Shaun fails at [[BalconyEscape climbing Liz's balcony]], but later during the ZombieApocalypse, he successfully pulls the stunt.
** Shaun and Ed debating on whether the rifle (a Winchester, natch) at The Winchester is a real gun or not. The owner claims it is, but also claims dogs can't look up. It turns out the rifle ''is'' a real one ''and'' perfectly functional.
--->'''Shaun:''' But dogs ''can'' look up!
** The front door is open, again!
** A more literal one than most:
--->'''Shaun:''' That was the second album I ever bought!
** "Player 2 has entered the game."
** We find out near the start that Ed sells a bit of weed every now and again. When someone named Noodle rings up at exactly the wrong time, one wonders what Ed means when he says he's got nothing.
** Shaun puts on his nametag and closes the mirror and sees Pete is behind him. Later on, he removes his nametag and closes the mirror and sees zombie Pete's shadow on the shower curtain.
** Many of the zombies seen individually are shown before they turned earlier in the movie.
** The following conversation between Shaun and Ed takes place twice in the movie, once while Ed is playing video games and once (with roles reversed) while Shaun is shooting actual zombies:
--->'''Shaun:''' Top Left... reload.\\
'''Ed:''' I'm on it.\\
'''Shaun:''' Nice shot.\\
'''Ed:''' Thanks.
** "Cock it!"
** The bungie cord game show which Shaun says he doesn't know returns at the end, with the contestants replaced by zombies.
** All of the other TV shows seen earlier on also come back with zombies.
** "I'm going to the shed."
** "''I said leave him alone!''"
** "Fuck-a-doodle-doo!"
** "Sorry, we're closed."
