        You missed the cameo of Chris Martin outside the pub as a zombie when the army turn up to save Shaun and Liz.

            When Shaun says "He's got an arm off!" I think that's a reference to Monty Python

              You forgot that every time someone says 'zombie', they are referencing the Cranberries tune.

                      Noooo! You missed the music reference at the very start of the film! While Shaun is sitted in the pub and the girl (I don't remember her name right now) is talking to him "Ghost town" by the specials is plaing in the background.

                        08:44 I'm pretty sure that is a reference to Heston and his links with the NRA, i.e. the characters sudden willingness to use a gun, NOT Heston 'always playing the hero'.

                            The shop being called "Landis" is actually very clever as there used to be a very common shop in the UK called Londis.

                              9:25 in Peter Jackson's "Braindead" the infection also startet with an ape, I think...

                                Jessica Hynes who played Simon Peggs Roommate Daisy in "Spaced" meets Shaun two times in the movie. Every time they meet, they talk like they had spent a lot time together in the past (like living together) but haven't seen themselfes for a while.

                                            7:43 Russell was a HUGE factor in what got me into philosophical thinking. He may not be the end all but he is a great thinker.

                                              Many of the zombies are references to drinks. The girl in the garden is named Mary in a nod to the Bloody Mary. One of them is a White Russian. Those are the only 2 I remember. I forget where I read that.
