★★★★☆

Shaun Of The Dead is very funny. Like the bassball bat and Nick Frosts driving ability. Not much else to say. Very funny Simon Pegg and Nick Frost at it agian. VERY FUNNY. Not as good as Hot Fuzz. Doesnt explain how evreyone became a zombie in the first place.

★★★★★

written by Xcellocoth on 18/01/2008

Shaun of the Dead, is about a disease cause from mad monkeys that spreads across the globe. The film is set in a small town where Shaun decides to try save his family and get them to somewhere safe. To avoid being eaten by a load of zombies. They travel across the town beating them up with whatever they can find. But the mission isn't quite such a breeze as he first thought it would be. Shaun of the dead is one of the funniest black comedies in a long time, with Simon Pegg and Nick frost as two of the major parts and Edgar Wright directing, it's bound to be liked by you.

“Shaun of the Dead is a zombie, comedy film with an...”

★★★★★

written by Donnabroom on 31/05/2007

Shaun of the Dead is a zombie, comedy film with an undercurrent of romance. It has an incredible cast including Simon Pegg, (Spaced, Black Books), Jessica Stephenson, (Spaced, According to Bex), Nick Frost, (Spaced), Dylan Moran, (Black Books), Lucy Davis, (The Office) and Peter Serafinowicz, (Spaced).

It is directed by Edgar Wright, who also directed Spaced and the French and Saunders TV series.

Wright also co-wrote the film with Actor, Simon Pegg.

The plot line goes a little something like this; Zombies suddenly appear and start feasting on the inhabitants of a little dreary town where the main character and his girlfriend are having a few difficulties romantically. The main difference with this film is that the Zombies can run!! A few people group together and try to survive with lot's of blood and gore and zombie splatting along the way, the funniest being when and are decided which vinyl LPs to launch at a member of the undead!

The film is witty and humorous all the way through and is moving in parts. At the end there is a hilarious surprise with tons of guest stars including Vernon Kay!!

It is a little disappointing that Jessica Stephenson got such a small part but her role is vital to the storyline. Dylan Moran's character can be a little grating as well but I think he's meant to be.

The film looks great throughout with awesome and bloody special effects and hundreds of undead extras. The sets are completely real looking and the lives of the main characters are reassuringly normal. All this makes the film believable. The acting and directing is spot on too.

This film is completely tongue in cheek and should viewed as such.

I would definitely recommend this to fans of Zombie films, comedy, Spaced, Black Books, The Office and to anyone who wants to know what it's all about. Basically if you like laughing watch this!!

“Shaun of the Dead - Shaun is in his late twenties and...”

★★★★★

written by speedfight2 on 14/05/2006

Shaun of the Dead - Shaun is in his late twenties and works in a electrical store with teenagers. He hangs out with his slobbish friend and spends every evening in the Winchester pub. Fed up with this, his girlfriend dumps him, leaving him with the words of his other flatmate ringing in his ears - `sort your life out'. His plans take an unexpected turn when he and Ed eventually notice that London's populace has mostly given into a virus that turns them into, well, the Z word. Shaun and Ed devise a plan to keep safe and rescue Shaun's mother and ex.

Overall this will not please everyone and I fear that some will not laugh as much as the adverts and hype suggested. However it is a good horror comedy and easily the best British film of the year so far.

“Shaun Of The Dead - The makers of this film described...”

★★★★★

written by Kati Reeve on 09/12/2004

Shaun Of The Dead - The makers of this film described it as 'a romantic comedy, with zombies' and that's exactly what this is. It is a wonderfully sweet and extremely funny romantic comedy about an average guy called Shaun just trying to win back his girlfriend, Liz. The day he tries to do this just so happens to be the day the dead decide to walk the Earth again and so Shaun has to deal with his feelings for Liz at the same time as he's dealing with an army of zombies. All he wants to do is get the girl, save his mum and his mates and still have time for a pint at his local! Easily one of the best films of this year, this is a laugh out loud, wonderfully original comedy from two of the most talented people working in the British film industry today: Edgar Wright (director/writer) and Simon Pegg (writer/star). This is the must-see of all must-sees this year. Forget Dawn of the Dead, it's all about Shaun.

written by freakyfriend on 18/04/2004

Shaun Of The Dead is one of the best comedy films I have seen with a twist of gore. It's not really scary, just gory at some points. I think they have brung out a kind of spoof of dawn of the dead too soon after it's release. Overall it is a good film and a must for comedy or gore fans. I am proud to be British when I see such a great performance from Simon Pegg, star or British comedy show "Spaced".

“Shaun of the dead is a really good film. It's very...”

★★★★☆

written by Roger L on 13/04/2004

Shaun of the dead is a really good film. It's very funny through out, although gets a bit gory and perhaps upsetting for some as everyone begins to die as the zombies take over.
The plot is simple Shaun (Simon Pegg) lives with a couple of flat mates Ed (Mike from Spaced) & That tall bloke from Hardware. His girlfriend dumps him after getting bored of nights out to the same pub. Then the world gets taken over by zombies. The reason behind this is never truly explained. Shaun and Ed then have to go and rescue his mum, from her about to be zombie husband (Bill Nighy). Then they attempt to save Shaun's Ex and her 2 flat mates (Dawn from the Office and Dillion Morgan), and take them to the 'safety' of the local pub.

The main joke is that Shaun and Ed don't really take the zombies very seriously and don't seem too worried by their predicament. About 2/3rds in the plot does get a bit serious and the comedy is put to on side for a little while and it is gorey enough to deserve it's 15 certificate. There is also very clever use of the same actors you see pre and post becoming zombies.

If you enjoy the TV show Spaced or like a little bit of zombies this is for you. I'm not a big zombie fan and haven't seen dawn of the dead but enjoyed this immensely.

Also watch out for cameos from Matt Lucas, Martin Freeman and the like.
