...not only a loving, teasing homage to the Romero Dead films. It's also a superb zombie film in its own right...
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 2, 2007
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.

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.

The Office meets Annie Hall meets Night of the Living Dead.

This is played for laughs, but director Edgar Wright also builds up suspense and dread better than a lot of straight horror flicks

For a comedy, the material is awfully bloody. But it's good, silly fun nonetheless.

Delightfully silly, slathered with gore and yes, even touching at times, Shaun Of The Dead should at the very least highlight Wright and Pegg as the British comedic force to watch for the future.

Shaun Of The Dead is quite simply a film you should not miss. A deserved hit in the UK, this hopefully marks a return to form for British cinema.
