Shaun of the Dead

09 Feb

With Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Kate Ashfield, Lucy Davis, Dylan Moran, Penelope Wilton and so on.

If you’ve seen the film ‘Paul’ then you know you have to watch this one aswell. The same power duo (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) in an idiot film.

They are basically Shaun the Loser, who doesn’t dare to tell his ‘friend’ Ed to ef off from his appartment, to make his plans for every single day at the pub instead of with his own girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) and so on.
Shaun doesn’t say anything to anyone. He is the loser at his job aswell, where he’s the eldest (in his late twenties) so nobody takes him seriously there either.
The film starts with Liz being fed up about never being alone with Shaun because of his friend Ed.

When suddenly the city is under attack of zombies, all hell breaks loose. But in such a lovely British way. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, along with Penelope Wilton, Bill Nighy and some other extras (Martin Freeman, Matt Lucas, the works) make up really well for their nonexistent skills in martial arts, throwing anything with feeling for directions and so on.

At times I just know they copied bits and pieces of The Walking Dead and From Dusk Till Dawn, but oh heck, it’s funny, so who the hell cares?

Don’t watch it if you have a weak stomach, as at times, it does show quite a bit, but to see zombies handled with British politeness etc….it’s a must watch!

    Since I’m more familiar with cop movies than with the horror genre, my favorite will always be Hot Fuzz. It’s a lot less bloody too. But as a Queen fan, I just roared when I saw the “Don’t Stop Me Now” scene. 🙂
