Shaun of the Dead Reviews

Nick's Flick Picks

Shaun of the Dead is either a zombie flick masking as a comedy, or a comedy masking as a zombie flick, or Beautiful Girls masking as a zombie comedy.

It's more enjoyable than most zombie movies or romantic comedies are in their own rights.

The most original comedy from either side of the pond in years.

Goatdog's Movies

It works best when it treats [the zombies] more as an impediment to be overcome by the sheer Britishness of the characters.

It's a comedy. It's a horror film. It's a head-crackin' good time.

The whole outlandish situation is treated with typical English stoicism, leading to some wonderfully funny moments.

Aisle Seat

Watching this slacker store clerk turn into a master zombie hunter to win the woman he loves is a refreshing way to approach the genre.

[T]the inevitable switch to romance taints the irony that came before like backwash.

... The best comedy and the best horror movie of the first nine months of 2004.

Peterborough This Week

Proves that uplifting romance doesn't have to take a back-seat to gory disembowelments but rather they can happily co-exist.

For those who don't mind a little laughter with their zombies (or perhaps it should be the other way around), this is an unusual source of entertainment.

Successfully blends comedy, horror, suspense, a killer soundtrack, and social commentary into ninety-nine minutes of cinematic sweetness.

Palo Alto Weekly

By going over the top on horror and below the belt on humor, this clever British import hits an uproarious cinematic chord.

Creative Loafing

The comedy quotient makes this more accessible to general audiences than most movies centering on the undead.

Entertainment Today

A colorful British genre mash-up that crossbreeds the zombified existence of late twentysomething interpersonal ennui with a literal attack of the undead.

October 5, 2004

Au-delà de la qualité de jeu des acteurs et des textes, les nombreuses références et les divers hommages présents dans le film en font un incontournable.

Shaun of the Dead aims for the head and the funny bone, and scores a major hit with both.

Harvey S. Karten

Ineffective as satire, comedy, and horror.

John Wirt
Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

For the satirically inclined, many chuckles are found in the run-up to the survivors' late-in-the-film, unfunny desperation.
