Summary: It's often said that the true character of a man is only revealed in times of dire crisis, and for likable, lovelorn loser Shaun (Simon Pegg), that moment of reckoning came when the dead rose from their slumber to feast on the flesh of the living. A hapless electronics store employee who spends most of his spare time downing pints at the local pub with his roommate, Ed (Nick Frost), Shaun's life seems to fall apart when he is dumped by his girlfriend, Liz (Kate Ashfield), and his obnoxious stepfather, Philip (Bill Nighy), shows up to berate him for not being more attentive to his caring mother Barbara (Penelope Wilton) -- especially since he forgot to send flowers for her birthday. Things take a turn for the worse when the dead return to stake their claim on the Earth, and though the chaos that follows threatens to swallow up all of England, it's up to Shaun to keep his cool and prove himself once and for all by successfully rescuing Liz and his mother. With his trusty roommate by his side, nothing -- not even the living dead -- can stand between Shaun and the two most important women in his life. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Jeremy Wheeler

Shaun of the Dead is an uproarious romantic zombie comedy that amazingly lives up to each of those genres in a fully respectable and entertaining way. With a return to the type of George Romero zombie logic that many genre throwbacks around this time threw out the window in favor of super sped-up monster attacks (see Dawn of the Dead remake or the laughably bad House of the Dead for reference), Shaun embraces the lumbering menace these type of undead creatures originally possessed, though the filmmakers aren't too afraid to poke their noses at it from time to time. With a hilarious cast headed by co-writer/director Simon Pegg (who along with co-director Edgar Wright created the hit U.K. television series Spaced), this tale of gory suburban survival is brought to life by a lively bunch of characters that each bring their own classic moments to the screen. Wonderful as well are the touching scenes that come out of nowhere and punch the viewer square in the gut just when they were least expecting it -- something incredibly rare in the horror comedy world and a direct result of a shrewd script and the gusto performances that pull them off. With scene after scene of inspired comic setups by a brilliant ensemble cast along with heaps of the red stuff when needed, Shaun of the Dead lives up to its near-unanimous hype and adds its very own touch to the world of gut-munching cinema. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
