She's so drunk!

Mary, the zombie in Shaun's backyard works at Landis Supermarket. This is a nod to John Landis, who directed An American Werewolf in London (1981), and to the British chain of convenience stores named Londis.
I never noticed the name before. That's cool. Mr. Green

Before the line "He's got an arm off" is shouted, you can see a poster of a bleeding cartoon schoolgirl in the background. This is a stylized version of a scene from the Japanese film Batoru rowaiaru (2000) (Battle Royale).

Well one I was with a friend of mine and we were in like an office building. And we would travel through the air ducts to get to where we needed to go. And we built beds like inches off the ceiling. It was high enough for us to sleep and the zombies couldn't get us. Although they did stand under us the whole time.

Wow!! That's pretty cool about the beds. Might have to steal that idea.

Night of the Living Dead (1968) director George A. Romero was given a private viewing of the film near his home in Florida. During the scene in which Ed (Nick Frost) yells into the phone, "We're coming to get you, Barbara," Romero was oblivious to the fact it was a direct lift from his film Night of the Living Dead (1968) and only found out later after a phone conversation with director Edgar Wright.

Laughing I wonder how often George has seen his own films.

I love this type of quickly run through a series of events type editing type scene thing. I have no clue what to call it, but I loved it in this and in Snatch, too.
