  • Once you realize that this is a very loose retelling of Romeo and Juliet, a lot of the names fall into place:
    • Julie is Juliet
    • Perry is Paris
    • Nora is The Nurse
    • M/Marcus is Mercutio
    • And R is Romeo (much teased at, but never stated in the film)—who does, conveniently, "refuse his name" (as per Act 2, scene 2).
    • And the rather obvious balcony scene...
  • It makes sense that the zombies couldn't smell Julie in the airplane. Airplanes need to be airtight. No air means no smell.
  • At dinner with Grigio, Perry, and Julie, they aren't eating any meat. Meat is a luxury that has become normal, so obviously it'd be hard to come by during the apocalypse.
  • At the airport, R has a vision of the past and remembers how great it was when people were living and could enjoy each other's company. Ironically, his vision has everyone at the airport shuffling around like zombies, staring at their smart phones and not interacting with each other.
  • When Julie's group gets to the clinic/hospital in the beginning of the movie, it's mentioned they're looking for medicine - both to help the city, and to help the continuing search for a cure. Then R and his group show up... Well, they did find a cure!

Fridge Horror
  • One of the extras portraying a zombie was pregnant. Providing this extends to her character- it raises disturbing questions.
