dead good

probably my favorite British movie of all time. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost delivers the goods in style in this bizarre comedic end-of-the-world fiasco with buckets of blood and gore. Snappy dialogue, silly characters... there is very, very little wrong with this spectacular little piece of British brilliance!

Apocalyptic Weapon of Choice: The Cricket Paddle

For some horror fans, satirizing the zombie genre (and let's face it, zombie films are practically a genre unto themselves) could seem like sacrilege. With the serious films that have come before - 28 Days Later, Dawn of the Dead, and, of course, Night of the Living Dead - SHAUN OF THE DEAD leads us down a path few have dared tread (Evil Dead fans should check out this film to see how a REAL spoof is pulled off). Leave it to the British to give us some gritty dialogue and bloody comedy all rolled into one. I, for one, say "thank you." The thing that helps this film stand out above other spoofs is that it doesn't dismiss the zombie-genre, but instead respects it and utilizes it to great comedic advantage. It's not slapstick, nor bathroom humor (although there is a touch of this thanks to Ed's bowels), but a set of co#*@% narratives and script that pulls the viewer into these characters lives and forces us to live with them. Most of us have seen, or have family members who are, in some way, these stereotypical losers. You can't help but cheer them on and hope that they survive their own failings. And that's where SHAUN OF THE DEAD gives you the emotional umpf! that you need to enjoy the movie. You care about them and laugh at their ridiculous inadequacies, both at the same time. This is truly a great film. A+ ...especially for creativity.

een van die beter flieks...

Okay so nie alle britse flieks kan as goed gesien word nie, veral nie met al die stront wat mens deesdae kry nie, maar hier is dit 'n ander geval en ons kry 'n gruwel storie wat nie gruwel aangedrewe is nie maar wat bou op die karakters. Die gruwel oorweldig ook nie en vorm deel die komiese oomblikke van die fliek. nie te sleg nie en totaal en al anders as al die ander Zombie flieks wat al vanaf '02 uitgekom het.

Brilliant

Ha ha ha. one of the funniest movies ever. Shawn of the dead is for sure one of the funniest British movies ever. Get it. Dry, Stupid, British comedy at its best.

Not too bad

It was only a matter of time with all the current zombie movies e.g Resident Evil, Dawn of the Dead, etc. before someone made a movie that mocks with all of them. Laugh out loud funny at most times, although the film tries to be serious at certain points (Why? It doesn't add integrity to the film). I also sheepishly have to admit that I sometimes had trouble understanding what the actors were saying (the cockney accents are quite overpowering; but this is a british movie, after all). Very good special features, although ultimately I'd recommend you watch the movie first before making the judgement of buying or not.
