Movie Info

Dead Right is an early short film from Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright. Wright filmed Dead Right in 1992 and 1993 in his hometown of Wells, England when he was only 18. He wrote, edited, produced and directed the film, as well as shooting and recording the sound. It is a Zucker Brothers style comedy that parodies the action thriller genre, most notably the Dirty Harry series ("Dead Right" was the working title for the original Dirty Harry). The film is shot on SVHS and contains an impressive cast of 70 actors (mostly amateur), mainly made up of Wright's school friends and colleagues. Clips from the film were first broadcast on Take Over TV - the Channel 4 series consisting entirely of video clips sent in by viewers - that also launched the careers of comedy duo Adam and Joe.

Audience Reviews for Dead Right

One of the funniest things I've seen in my life and this is Edgar Wright's college short film. What's even more funny, check out the Simon Pegg and Nick Frost commentary.
