A very British, humorous take on the good old zombie topic. Not only is this full of great ideas, jokes, movie quotes and great laughs, it even works pretty well as gory splatter horror, even though you gotta laugh way too often to be really scared. Silly, but really lovable and just fun to watch, as long as some blood doesn't bother you.

Shaun of the Dead no gasta em vo,litros de sangue e equilibra comedia e terror com planos de sequencia e maquiagem impressionantes.

Hilarious zombie comedy that pays homage to many of the great films of the past while managing to be a pretty scary itself. The cast is splendid across with board, with Simon Pegg & Nick Frost's buddy routine translating perfectly to the big screen, while Bill Nighy makes the most of his small role (with a sucker-punch of a final scene). The real star is writer/director Edgar Wright, who makes a fantastic film debut, delivering laughs & scares at the same time. Most importantly, the zombies are taken seriously and are quite scary & gruesome (more than a few characters meet a brutal end), making the comedy that much more effective. One of the best horror/comedies of all time.

What he proposes to do, the film is perfect, with a great edition, fast script, smart and funny jokes and performances that convecem, the film is extremely entertaining and worth watching, it is a pity the makeup of the zombies are not best, but as the film does not take itself seriously it is ok.
Edgar Wright urgently needs to be better recognized and have more opportunities in Hollywood, and a great director.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are Awesome! It's damn hilarious not like the shitty american popular kids movies that are not funny at all. this movie is the perfect example to go watch it. i have to agree with the critics, I did miss Hot Fuzz but already have this on DVD. Simon Pegg is my Favourite Comedien and Edgar Wright is one of my favourite Directors of all time.

Grade: A+

Pretty decent comedy in slight relation to George Romero's classic. Simon Pegg is a funny enough actor keeping his character as funny and interesting throughout the entire film. While I wouldn't consider it an instant classic, it is still a fairly entertaining British horror comedy that starts it's laughs officially in the mid-beginning with a pretty insane amount of zombie humor until the near end. The repeated planning scene in the middle of the film was an outrageous one. Overall, the movie has good wit, decent charm, and an unpredictable enough plot. No doubt the characters were catching enough during the film as well.

Funny, intelligent and well directed, Shaun of the dead rises above most 21st century comedies

Shaun of the Dead is fun and clever, it makes reference and fun of horror movies and it's a great directed movie which Edgar Wright put a lot of his style on it, It's a great satire, it's a comedy and sometimes it's intense, but overall it's one of my favourite if not my favourite movie with zombies ever made.

As much as I wanted to like Shaun of the Dead, the pacing is slow and tries to hard to be a zombie-friendship-satire-slapstick all at once.

The screenplay trips over itself more times than it should considering the overall wit it contains (especially on rushed character development), but the film generally makes up for its shortcomings with an irresistibly likable spirit.

While not quite a swift as Hot Fuzz or as feisty as Paul, it still stands as a piece of comedy genius; and defining to the dazzling pair which are none other than Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. In all, it adds up to a humorous (possibly slightly cheesy) zombie bloodbath to be admired.

Funny Ass Zombie Movie.

One of the originals of the horror/comedy breed... and they set the bar very high. It's hilarious and entertaining right til end. Great movie.

This is excellent and Edgar Wright's use of repeated dialogue, imagery, and themes is brilliant.

A hilarious and wonderfully gory zombie comedy. Doesn't get better than this.

Everybody has expectations of being the hero with a level head if the zombie apocalypse strikes, but Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and the cast of Shaun of the Dead are quick to set you back in reality. A neatly wrapped satire adventure with a marriage of clever actors and sharp writing that accentuates British humour to its finest. A refreshing lift for zombie lovers.
