Song From the OST


  • When asked by an interviewer why they chose to have slow moving zombies instead of running zombies, Simon Pegg simply replied, “Because death is not an energy drink.
  • Shaun and Ed’s friendship is based on Simon Pegg’s and Nick Frost’s when they shared a flat together.
  • All of the newsreaders and television presenters are real people portraying themselves.
  • Almost all bit-part characters can be seen later in this movie as zombies.
  • According to Edgar Wright, Cornettos appear in this movie is because he once ate a Cornetto to get over a hangover, and thought it would be funny if Ed did the same after a night of drinking.
  • Although sporadically hinted at, the cause of the zombie invasion is never properly explained. When people are about to, they get interrupted by something.
