Trivia Danny Boyle has stated that of the films he has directed, this is his father's favorite, and that whenever a new film directed by Boyle junior is released (including Slumdog Millionaire (2008), which won the academy award both for best film and best director) and he asks Boyle senior's opinion, his father's review is always the same - "It was good, but not as good as 'Shallow Grave'."

Goofs In the scene where the trio are driving across North Bridge at night, they have a lengthy conversation before the camera cuts back to the rear of the car, still crossing the bridge. They could have crossed the bridge twice at the speed they are driving. See more »
