A parody movie from the original films of George Romero’s Dead Series films of; Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, & Day of the Dead.
Although this film is a parody, it still involves some scenes some will find scary, especially if you are unable to watch films involving blood and gore – this film does not show a lot, but there are some scenes that do, just to be aware if you have not watched this or have made it this far to avoid watching it.
The plot of this film involves Shaun (Simon Pegg), who is in his 30’s who enjoys his easy existence and having a life revolving around socialising at the local pub. When he isn’t at work, he is at his small flat with his best friend Ed (Nick Frost), where he does have a girlfriend that brings unpredictability to his life, who wishes for Shaun to grow up and be a man. When the town, on the outskirts of London, becomes overrun by Zombies, Shaun finds he has to rise to this in order to protect the ones most closest to him, including his girlfriend and his mum.
I have to admit, I have not seen this film before now, this came up when I selected the “pick me something to watch” on Netflix. I sat and watched this, and found it very funny from the very start, and I did enjoy it. I now question why it took me this long to watch this film, and now understand the GIFS I see often, which most I see are related to scenes in this film, and I also understand why my friends enjoyed this film.
If you are like me and have not watched this film yet, I recommend giving it a watch, if you like parody and silly films, this will be a good one for you, it is full of all emotions from scenes of seriousness, to silliness, to comedic scenes.
I rate this film with 5 stars!
