Overview

Shaun of the Dead

The zombie-riffic Shaun of the Dead heads to the U.S. DVD shelves with this fine release from Rogue Pictures. Carrying over many (but not all) of the extras from the packed U.K. disc, this release has loads of special features for you to sink your teeth into, plus fantastic transfers to boot. Starting with the technical aspects, the DVD scores points for delivering the 2.35:1 widescreen image of the film, plus a quality Dolby Digital 5.1 track that whooshes you through the fast-paced action and bathes you inside the gore-filled gunfire later on in the film. The extras start with two commentaries -- one from star/co-writer Simon Pegg and director/co-writer Edgar Wright, while the other is a cast commentary featuring Pegg again with Nick Frost, Dylan Moran, Kate Ashfield, and Lucy Davis. The first track features some downright dizzying banter between the two collaborators as they dish out zombie trivia and generally give major love to all involved with the production, while the cast commentary is filled with more zany fun that's sure to please. This edition did miss out on both the Bill Nighy and Penelope Wilton commentary found in the U.K. release, along with the classic zombie commentary they included there as well, though hardcore fans will surely seek that edition out if they need it. The rest of the extras are packed with more bloody goodness, starting with the fact-filled "Zomb-O-Meter" subtitle track and "Storyboard Comparions" branching feature. Both extras add a bit more to the viewing experience every time you put the disc in, which is a sure sign of a solid DVD. Other bonus features include 15 extended scenes, ten minutes of outtakes, plus three neat comic-book stories by Oscar Wright (brother of the director) that fill in plot holes in the film -- and this disc has only begun to warm up. Add in a behind-the-scenes video diary, casting tapes, makeup tests, and an SFX comparison that is laid out in an incredibly easy-to-understand fashion that highlights the ingenuity of the film's effects staff. Also included is a highly interesting clip with Pegg and Wright filmed in September of 2001 where they literally go through a flip chart of the film as imagined at that time, complete with dialogue and storyboards. If you think that's all, there's still more to chew on and it's all great stuff, from the extra TV bits that were filmed for the movie all the way though the 2000 AD comic adaptation, included in the zombie gallery section. Those that visited the website will be happy to see the basic design layout repeated here on the menu screens, as will the horror fans out there that will appreciate the George Romero quote on the front of the box. Consistently entertaining with enough extras to shake a zombie at, the Shaun of the Dead DVD is a winner for U.S. audiences and proof that Rogue Pictures is a strong supporter of the film and its fans.

I was weary of giving this a shot but found it extremely entertaining. Simon Pegg is brilliant. I love how it pokes fun at humans for their zombie-like behavior at work. Give it a shot at least.

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

i'm a HUGE zombie flick fan. but, nonetheless, this deffffinetely is one of the best zombie flicks ever. definite keeper. This is, as Ed says, "a slice of fried gold"

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.
Madam_Fynswyn More than 1 year ago
This movie is one of the funniest I have ever seen. I rank it right up there with Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day. It is one of those that no matter when you come into it, it is ALWAYS at a 'good part.'
Guest More than 1 year ago
Infinitely quatable and enjoyable, Shaun of the Dead is a modern classic of both horror and comedy. Bloody and creepy enough to appease the horror crowd while at the same time funny and smart enough to keep even the most squimish entertained and in thier seat. Highest recommendation

I absolutely love this movie. A great combination of horror and comedy! Everything about this movie is worth a watch.
Guest More than 1 year ago
That tagline probably best describes this film. During the first thirty minutes or so Shaun and Ed are completely oblivious to the signs of impending doom all around them. This is chiefly because they are, like many people would be, so wrapped up in their middle-class problems to notice. Add to that the fact that the news is constantly spouting gloom and doom twenty four hours a day as it is. This film is less of a comedy like Dead Alive and more of a Hugh Grant or John Cusack film with zombies as the antagonistic force rather than money or infidelity. All in all it is a solid film with quite a few laughs. The zombies look great and the cast is superb.

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

I thought this movie was great! Horror/comedy at its best as I see it. I would definitely suggest this for a laugh or a scare depending on the person.

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

The movie Shaun of the Dead is a movie from Britian, the movie is funny and violent. The 2 main characters don't even know what's going on in the neighborhood. This is one of the best zombie flicks!
