    ts rare you find a film of this stature in which every single scene is entertaining and serves a purpose. Come back to me when you find a modern zombie film this amazing. I'll not hold my breath as I might die.

    Well written zombie flick that is more humorous than scary.

    The tone is comedy with horror and that works. The lack of music gives it a eerie feeling but when there is music (pub scene) it works and doesn't feel out of place

    Seriously funny. A brilliant movie which really emphasizes the quality of the Cornetto trilogy. Intense, hilarious, gripping - a must watch.

    One of the best zombie movies of all time. Shaun of the dead is as clever, funny, and witty as you could ask it to be.

    This is now the second time I've seen Shaun of the Dead and I can say that it was better the second time around. Shaun of the Dead is the first film in the Cornetto trilogy and was directed by Edgar Wright. The film stars Simon Pegg as Shaun and Nick Frost as Ed. The acting for the most part was really strong, but there was one or two scenes were some of the more secondary actors felt a little off. The characters were portrayed well by the actors and were very enjoyable to watch in a zombie apocalypse setting. The cinematography was steady with some very good shots here and there. The settings were very strong ranging from a pup called the Winchester to a zombie apocalypse. The set design and props were used very well and fit the film. The film also has some really strong costume and makeup design. The film in my opinion also has a really good style from the colour design to the tone of the film. The practical and special effects are done really well especially for the budget of the film. The film also has some very sound action from the look to the way it's directed. Like most of Edgar Wright's films the editing is very strong and really works with the film. The film also has some music which I felt worked with the film. I especially liked one use of the song Don't stop me now. The comedy like most of Edgar Wright's films is really good with really strong comedic timing. The film also I found got a little emotional toward the end especially with the character Ed. I also personally really enjoy this film, and will be watching it again and again. Over all I give it a 9/10 - one of the greats

    The first movie of the Three Flavours Cornetto (I plan on watching all three of them). This one is basically a guy who has a friend and they have day jobs and a zombie outbreak happens and they try their other friends. This is horror/comedy movie, and it does have both aspects. Also being British movie it's also quite depressing and the comedy is dry, which is normal for British comedy. Like all movies, the beginning is slow, but it does pick up. The action isn't bad for being a comedy and it is quite bloody too. The acting is actually very good and some parts are kind of sad. Not much to say left, that is sort of the whole movie. To round it up: it has funny parts, blood, cursing, some violence, heart, and a good cast. Not bad at all.
