Shaun of the DeadDirector: Edgar Wright
It's often said that the true character of a man is only revealed in times of dire crisis, and for likable, lovelorn loser Shaun (Simon Pegg), that moment of reckoning came when the dead rose from their slumber to feast on the flesh of the living. A hapless electronics store employee who spends most of his spare time downing pints at the local pub with his roommate, Ed (Nick Frost), Shaun's life seems to fall apart when he is dumped by his girlfriend, Liz (Kate Ashfield), and his obnoxious stepfather, Philip (Bill Nighy), shows up to berate him for not being more attentive to his caring mother Barbara (Penelope Wilton) -- especially since he forgot to send flowers for her birthday. Things take a turn for the worse when the dead return to stake their claim on the Earth, and though the chaos that follows threatens to swallow up all of England, it's up to Shaun to keep his cool and prove himself once and for all by successfully rescuing Liz and his mother. With his trusty roommate by his side, nothing -- not even the living dead -- can stand between Shaun and the two most important women in his life.

Great Film, this made me like the Zombie genre!
The first time I laughed so hard because I couldn't believe it, and by the third time I was laughing even harder. This movie, while it is gross and startling as a good horror movie should be, is also hysterically funny.
I'm a Senior in high school, and over the past four years, my friends and I have seen numerous movies--at least one a month. THIS BY FAR IS THE BEST ONE WE'VE SEEN TOGETHER. In fact, I've seen in it twice!... so far... AND, we all agree that we are definitely buying a copy of the DVD ASAP. Thank you to everyone involved in the production of Shaun of the Dead! BEST MOVIE OF 2004!!!
A very funny zombie film that as horror and gallows of humor.
I saw this movie only once in theaters... but I dream about it every night... I love it and I am going to buy it on DVD tomorrow.
wow! the BEST movie i've seen this year! at first i *REALLY* didn't want to see this movie AT ALL but some friends convienced me to see it. i couldn't believe how funny this movie was. i cant remember laughing that hard in a movie-ever! it's a great comedy and it's spooky as well. i truly enjoyed this movie! :)
this movie has a good mix of everything, comedy, romance, and best of all gore. watching more than once makes this movie funnier. i especially enjoyed the extras, plot holes and 'funky' pete
Shaun of the dead is one of the best zombie movies ever. As a spoof on Dawn of the dead (the more serious zombie flick of the two) Shaun of the dead makes a little laugh at the thought of our friends,family,and strangers coming back wanting to eat our brains out. You kind of fall in love with the charecters. Especially shaun and his hopeless relationship with his gf, and his sweet and funny relationship with his best friend ed. I recommend this to anyone who has a good sense of humor, There is gore in it though not too out of hand and ridiculous. but just the right serving
Shaun of the Dead is an entertaingly funny movie, unfortunately the British humour in it may leave some people wondering what they have just subjected themselves to...not so and people say we Brits don't have a sense of humour. I'd recommend this to anyone that wants an easy chuckle with a dash of gore to accompany their lager and crisps after a Saturday night down the pub
not only is this hilarious, but it's a damn good zombie movie.
This movie is the BEST zombie/parody movie I've seen in a while...The humor is spot-on but the horror aspect is spot-on also...perfectly gory and funny, this is my favorite film of 2004.
Being the Coldplay addict that I am, I originally only wanted to see Shaun of the Dead because I knew that Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland were making a cameo in it somewhere. But three minutes into it, I forgot all about that because I was laughing so much. Very entertaining film. I've seen it six times already. There's comedy in the smallest of things, is that the definition of British humor? Because if that's so, I'm just one of the few Americans who understand it. You should certainly watch this flick if you're looking for a dose of non-stop comedy, drama,and horror rolled all into one. Also if you have a good sense of humor.
This is one of the most entertaining movies I have seen. The majority of the people that say they do not like this movie bought or rented it half expecting a classic zombie horror flick. The subtle british humour adds to the hilarity of parts in this movie. If you want a pretty good zombie movie get 28 days later or somehting like that, but if you're looking for a humourous movie, this is good.
