* TrailersAlwaysLie: The film was advertised as a typical Zombie-Comedy, about two small town cops dealing with a Zombie apocalypse in a deadpan and humourous manner, The film itself is actually rather bleak, with little actual humour, the fact that most of the main cast are [[DullSurprise less lively than the zombies]], Doesn't help matter with only Creator/ChloeSevigny and Creator/TildaSwinton actually seeming to put any real effort, the odd GainaxEnding twist that both Creator/AdamDriver and Creator/BillMurray's characters [[spoiler: are aware they are in a movie]] doesn't help matters much.

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: The film doesn't make particularly good use of its AllStarCast. Many show up for only a brief scene, such as Creator/CarolKane, who is almost immediately killed after becoming a zombie. Other characters don't really serve much purpose in the story. The "hipsters from the city", which include Music/SelenaGomez of all people, have several scenes entering and getting to know the town, only to be KilledOffScreen having done nothing to affect the plot. All of this is part of the film's overall ShootTheShaggyDog story.
