Shaun of the Dead

softhed2One of the funniest movies every made. The British have such a unique sense of reality vs reality, it makes their comedy dark and delicious, but never dank.

A buddy/romcom film with so much heart the zombies are a delightful side note.

There is no way to describe how witty, silly, droll, sweet, and stunning a masterpiece this is without showing the movie.

Plenty of pop culture zaps, tons of dysfunctional family and friend interactions while trying to fight zombies, and too much energy to contain.

This film sets the gold standard for any zomcoms to come.softhed3

Lots of nods to George A. Romero’s zombie flicks, including the title.

Romero, flattered and impressed, offered Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright cameos in 2005’s Land of the Dead.

They’re zombies, see if you can find them.
