Shaun of the Dead

In honor of Zombie Appreciation week, I present to you the most incredible awesome zombie movie of all time. Feast your eyes upon.....

Oh yes....Shaun of the Dead. I looooooove this movie oh so much.

Don't believe me when I say it's awesome?! Here's what Amazon had to say:

British horror/comedy Shaun of the Dead is a scream in all senses of the word. Brain-hungry zombies shamble through the streets of London, but all unambitious electronics salesman Shaun (Simon Pegg) cares about is his girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield), who just dumped him. With the help of his slacker roommate Ed (Nick Frost), Shaun fights his way across town to rescue Liz, but the petty concerns of life keep getting in the way: When they're trying to use vinyl records to decapitate a pair of zombies, Shaun and Ed bicker about which bands deserve preservation--New Order they keep, but Sade becomes a lethal frisbee. Many zombie movies are comedies by accident, but Shaun of the Dead is deliberately and brilliantly funny, while still delivering a few delicious jolts of fear. Also featuring the stealthy comic presence of Bill Nighy (Love Actually) and some familar faces from The Office. --Bret Fetzer

I couldn't agree with you more Bret Fetzer. This movie is hilarious and it has just the right touch of gore to make this an authentic zombiefest. I can't reccommend it enough, if just for the adorable Simon Pegg, who is at his absolute best here.

Check it out, you won't be sorry.

"We're coming to get you Barbara!!"


  1. "You've got read on your shirt!"

    Plus my favorite part, where the zombie girl is wandering in the yard, and they think she's drunk so they throw a rock at her, then Ed takes a picture of Shaun with her, LMAO, I don't think I've laughed so hard at a zombie film.

  2. I actually have this film but I've never watched it. Perhaps it's about time?

  3. My favourite part is right at the start when he's doing his normal walk to the shops and he doesn't notice that there are dead bodies everywhere and blood and zombies cos he's just so pissed off. So funny. Love this film.

  4. I loved this film and thought it was hilarious! A couple years back my English teacher dressed up as Shaun for Halloween. He even brought in some records as props.
