It’s Episode 114! It’s Episode 111! Adelle Drover (Roll Credits) and Clarisse Loughrey (Independent and Kermode and Mayo) return to Flixwatcher to review Adelle’s choice the 2004 zombie romcom Shaun of the Dead.

Shaun of the Dead is the first in the Cornetto Trilogy of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg post Spaced feature films. Pegg is Shaun, a directionless Londoner caught up in a zombie apocalypse while trying to get back together with his girlfriend with his best mate Ed (Nick Frost) in tow.

 

At a run time of 99 minutes Shaun of the Dead manages to fit in numerous nods to all your favourite zombie films, Spaced references, classic lines “you’ve got red on you”, cameos from the who’s who of British comedy, Queen on the soundtrack and a commendable level of gore. A proper cult classic.

 

Scores

Watching Shaun of the Dead feels a lot like hanging out with your best mate and is also a friendly welcome to the zombie sub genre. Shaun scores highly across all categories with a lot of love from Clarisse and Helen scoring 4.45 overall.
