Character error 

The newspaper headline has an apostrophe typo: "Is Europes' disease carried on the wind?" Correction: The end of proper plural nouns that end in 'S' receive the apostrophe after, not before, the 'S'. as in: The countries' laws.

In the flashback sequence where Morgan takes his wife's body in his car for a secret burial, the shots of him inside the car driving shows that it is night or pre-dawn. However, the exterior shots of the car moving along on the road show that it is already daylight.

The first station wagon Morgan has (a Chevy) turns into a Ford (look for the 4 headlights) and back to the Chevy (2 headlights). He eventually ends up with the Ford after the zombies wreck the Chevy.

Plot holes 

When Morgan returns home at night and is fighting the vampires he opens his unlocked front door and enters. The marauding vampires should have been able to enter the home, before his arrival, with the door unlocked.
