Shaun of the Dead - REVIEW

Film of the Day #38

Shaun of the Dead is not only one of the single best zombie movies ever made but it's also as close to perfect as a film can get. Co-written by director Edgar Wright and star Simon Pegg, Shaun of the Dead is able to balance the comedy and the gore in a way that will satisfy both zombie genre fans and less bloodthirsty viewers. Even when in danger of self-destructing, it cadges laughs with smart lines, silly observations or blokish inside jokes about zombie movies, video games and pub nibbles. The best rom-zom-com ever!
