Aro Recommended Shaun of the Dead


UK 2004, 99 minutes
Dir. Edgar Wright
Rating: [R] R13 Contains Violence, Horror & Offensive Language
Genres: Comedy, Horror / Walking Dead, Spoof


Aroview: The zombie movie genre collides with distinctively British "lad humour" in this playful and wildly entertaining parody.

Centred around the dischevelled daily grind of a hardware salesman (Simon Pegg, who co-wrote the script), his slovenly flatmate and his fed-up girlfriend, this has unlikely characters worth rooting for and wrings many laughs out of the sometimes imperceptible line between the living and dead. Perhaps resembles the 'real thing' a little too closely in the final reel, but this will still go down (with a pint or two no doubt) as a minor classic of the genre.
