I must have watched this film 100 times now, the more you watch it, the funnier it gets. Full of subtle human and not for the fainr of heart, its a film you definately have to sit down and pay attention to.

**** out of ****    Edgar Wright is the kind of guy who I would best describe as nice. A director of comedy films - always has, always will be, I hope - , it's surprising that one of the genre's greatest minds working today does not succumb to the universal demands of the folks overseas. A filmmaker working primarily in his homeland United Kingdom, Wright isn't one to rely on gross-out gags or excessively crude humor. He does however seem to like blood a whole lot. But that's …

I was not expecting to enjoy this movie at all. I am not much of a horror film fan, but this movie is funny and done very smartly. Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are the perfect comedy team in this movie.

Probably my favorite British cult favorite, a zombie movie is never this fun. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are an incredible duo.

One of the greatest splatsticks ever, Shawn of the Dead takes the social commentary of early George Romero's zombie works, moves it to modern day London and adds a keen sense of British humor to it all. It's an entirely funny affair perfectly mixed with a bit of gore, cricket bats, vinyl records, the local pub and how the day in and day out routine of many people's lives is relatively no different than being a zombie. Outside of the biting people bit... in some cases.

While this is a good movie, I don't like it as much as a lot of other people seem to.

This movie is a great mix of horror and comedy. Pegg is excellent as usual.

Like a true American, I think everything is better with a British accent, and this zombie spoof is no exception.  I'm not sure it would be as funny if it were American-made, but that's rather besides the point.  Shaun and a group of his friends wind up running around London, rounding up his friends, ex-girlfriend, mother and father ("He's not my dad, he's my stepdad!") in order to protect them from the zombies suddenly taking over the city.  To give you an idea of how non-threatening …

This movie delivers exactly what it promises: "A romantic comedy - with zombies". Nothing more, nothing less. Still very entertaining.

I couldn't review Shaun of the dead the first time I saw it because it was a little different than what you usually see in zombie movies. When you think about it why wouldn't zombies be funny, they're slow, stupid, and two English guys with nothing to do are willing to show you every other reason to laugh about it. Don't even try to watch Shaun of the dead if you take everything seriously because it really isn't that type of film. This movie is like one of the classic zombie flicks and the guys …

I finally got a chance to see this movie, and I LOVED it!! It is so funny and gross at the same time. Many viewers have seen "Dawn of the Dead" (old and new), "Night of the Living Dead," "Day of the Dead," "Resident Evil" flicks and any other number of zombie films, right? So when you hear the term "funny" associated with "zombie" you think, "Oh, it's a spoof." Quite the opposite is true of "Shaun of the Dead."     In here we have Shaun who's a disenfranchised Peter Pan, idling …

Let me begin by saying that I am a huge fan of horror-comedies. I mean, what are two of the strongest humor emotions? Fear and happiness. Horror-comedies mix these two elements, and if done correctly - which is no easy feat - you can have one darn fine movie. And "Shaun of the Dead" is just that. I've been looking forward to this movie since I first saw it advertised in U.S. theaters, and I can sincerely say that it lived up to the highest of my expectations.    Simon Pegg (who …

Pros: hilarious, acting, soundtrack, Britishisms     Cons: a bit too heavy, too gory for some, romantic comedy part     The Bottom Line: You might die of laughter     Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot. Shaun of the Dead is one of the most enjoyable movies I’ve seen in the past year. On the way out of the theater, I used the word “genius” several times during my giddy ramblings and pretending …
review by . October 05, 2004
Pros: Nice idea, some good jokes.     Cons: Very dull final 20 minutes, loses direction in the final 1/3 of the film.     The Bottom Line: Could have been much better, but as it stands, its a rental.     With the recent influx of the walking dead at your local multiplex, it would be easy to dismiss the British film "Shaun of the Dead" as just another cheap zombie film. While few will mistake "Shaun" as a landmark in cinematic history, but …
