Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

For everyone who likes good acting and great writing, it's a bloody fun time and a wonderful display of how parody should be done.

Radio Times

If you like Pegg and director Edgar Wright's cult Channel 4 series Spaced, you'll enjoy this deadpan blend of undergraduate humour and hardcore horror, which ransacks George A Romero's Dead saga and virtually every Italian zombie flick for inspiration.

Pegg, who cowrote Shaun with director Edgar Wright, shows off expert timing, whacking punchlines and zombies with equal panache.

Mixing horror and humor is no mean feat, but Shaun Of The Dead tightens throats in fear without making the laughs stick there in the process.

The pasty, scruffy Pegg shows a surprising amount of range for the unlikely hero of a zombie flick.

Enough of a pointed study of character that it's more than just a collection of some of the best and most ridiculous jokes in a generation.

Smart, likeable and consistently funny, Shaun Of The Dead is one of the most popular British comedies of the last few decades, and deservedly so.

Total Film

Like Romero's best efforts, the movie is motored by a keen observational reality, cleverly twisting the characters' mundane world inch by inch until the real nightmare dawns on them.

Some funny moments, but for adults only.

Shaun of the Dead is not only one of the single best zombie movies ever made, but it's also as close to perfect as a film can get.

A modern masterpiece, this is probably altogether the funniest and scariest film I've seen in years...

Comedy and horror are real life partners, of course, and who better to bring all this to life in a zombie movie than the Brits?

I think the movie is one of the most hilarious I've ever seen ... But the symbolism and depth of the movie make me appreciate it as a masterpiece.

In this most apocalyptic of genres, Shaun of the Dead is not unlike a ray of unexpected sunshine - even if it has a little red on it.

...not only a loving, teasing homage to the Romero Dead films. It's also a superb zombie film in its own right...

Bangor Daily News (Maine)

A romantic zombie comedy that tips its hat to George Romero and mines one very funny spoof that doesn't ignore the rules of the zombie horror genre--though it does tamper with them.

Shaun is able to balance the comedy and the gore in a way that will satisfy both zombie genre fans and less bloodthirsty viewers.

The cast make a cosy fit, the patter is still sitcom snappy, but Wright also has the visual snap to carry this saga of backyard apocalypse.

Even when in danger of self-destructing, it cadges laughs with smart lines, silly observations or blokish inside jokes about zombie movies, video games and pub nibbles.
