* Shaun seeing a horde of zombies devouring one of the regulars from the Winchester, the man with the snakeskin boots. It's how he realizes they're on the right track to the pub.


** Sure, he's the films most detestable character (making his demise less unfunny than most others), but the last ten seconds of his life were pure terror, hopelessness and pain.

He died almost instantly upon being paunched, so his suffering was short lived. Still, what a horrific, embarrassing way to go.

* Some of the background events such as the well-dressed man running away from ''something'' as Shaun buys flowers; the homeless man who grabs a pigeon and ''raises it to his mouth'' -- and then a bus goes by; and then the couple outside the Winchester who appear to be making out... ''and then the guy's head falls back onto his back....''

* The moment when the undead groom shuffles silently into the house. Shaun and Ed are engrossed in the television which is showing a News Report on the unfolding events; [[MeaningfulBackgroundEvent in the background, the front door is slowly pushed open and a dark indistinct]] ''[[MeaningfulBackgroundEvent something]]'' [[MeaningfulBackgroundEvent stumbles forward just out of shot]]. The news report then reminds everyone to keep all windows locked and barricaded. As Shaun and Ed slowly look at each other with horrifying sense of realization, a shadow crosses the living room wall behind them...

* The lights being switched on in the basement of the Winchester. We're expecting, when Shaun goes into a dark room alone, that he'll be attacked by a stray zombie trapped in there. We don't expect that when he switches on the lights there are ''dozens and dozens of gore-smeared zombies pawing at the window '''in complete silence.''' ''His knee-jerk reaction of turning off the lights and pulling down the shade somehow makes it worse, because now they're out of sight but ''definitely'' not out of mind.

* The part where Mary falls down onto the umbrella stand, complete with blood splatter. And then she manages to lever herself up off the stand, with much snapping and squelching, and as she stands up we're shown the lovely hole going right through her body. ''Uuuuuugh.''
