Product Description

Much-lauded comedy, described by its makers as 'a romantic comedy - with zombies'. Written by Simon Pegg, creator of the hit TV series 'Spaced', the film fuses the style (and copious bloodshed) of classic zombie films with observational suburban comedy. Shaun (Pegg) is a useless but likeable thirty-something who works in an electronics shop in Crouch End. He doesn't get much respect from his fellow staff, even though he's standing in as temporary boss; his girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) has had enough of his lack of direction and penchant for downing pints in the local pub; and he doesn't get on with his stepdad (Bill Nighy). Things get worse when the living dead make their appearance, threatening to spread their zombie curse across the nation. Will Shaun be able to rise from his sofa to save the lives of the two women he loves - Liz and his dear old mum?

From Amazon.co.uk

It's no disparagement to describe Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s zombie-rom-com Shaun of the Dead as playing like an extended episode of Spaced. Not only does the movie have the rather modest scope of a TV production, it also boasts the snappy editing, smart camera moves, and deliciously post-modern dialogue familiar from the sitcom, as well as using many of the same cast: Pegg’s Shaun and Nick Frost’s Ed are doppelgangers of their Spaced characters, while Jessica Stevenson and Peter Serafinowicz appear in smaller roles. Unlike the TV series, it’s less important for the audience to be in on the movie in-jokes, though it won’t hurt if you know George Romero’s famous Dawn of the Dead trilogy, which is liberally plundered for zombie behaviour and mythology.

Shaun is a loser, stuck in a dead-end job and held back by his slacker pal Ed. Girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) is exasperated by his lack of ambition and unceremoniously dumps him. As a result, Shaun misses out on what is apparently the end of the world. In a series of beautifully choreographed and edited scenes, including hilarious tracking shots to and from the local shop, he spectacularly fails to notice the death toll and subsequent zombie plague. Only when one appears in their back garden do Shaun and Ed take notice, hurling sundry kitchen appliances at the undead before breaking out the cricket bat. The catastrophe proves to be the catalyst for Shaun to take charge of his life, sort out his relations with his dotty mum (Penelope Wilton) and distant stepdad (Bill Nighy), and fight to win back his ex-girlfriend. Lucy Davis from The Office and Dylan Moran of Black Books fame head the excellent supporting cast. --Mark Walker

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Simon Pegg plays Shaun, a salesman, who leads a dull and mundane life, and lives with two flatmates, Ed and Pete, played respectively by Nick Frost and Peter Serafinowicz. Ed, his best friend, believes a good night out is at 'The Winchester', their local pub. However Shaun's girlfriend, Liz, played by Kate Ashfield, has other ideas, and doesn't want to spend her nights in a pub. This in turn splits Shaun and Liz up, and when there's an outbreak of zombies, his only thoughts are to save his mom and Liz from their clutches.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are both brilliant in this spoof of the zombie genre. If you are into zombie films, or comedy, then you will enjoy this film. It is a well made film that dosen't fail to bring a smile to anybody who watches it. the print used for the transfer is clean and free of scratches.

Picture Quality is pin sharp with solid colours. This blu ray transfer is in the original aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The sound is in 5.1.

For all Simon Pegg and Nick Frost fans,

Recommended.

Format: DVD
Did not see the film at the cinema, but was impressed by the soundtrack I was given as a present, could sense it was going to be a funny film. I have always been a horror fan, so I liked the idea of a send-up, especially a British one.
Was certainly worth it, no point in giving you the full rundown, there are already other reviews that do justice.
As for the actual DVD, the extras are as long as the film and worth checking out. I think if you enjoy a film that much you will always check out the extras for extended or deleted scenes, outtakes etc.
This has all those and they are amusing in the same vein, including Plot Holes, which does a "If you wondered what happened when Shaun led the zombies away from the pub" comic strip bit, plus a couple of others. There are commentaries and still-shots (think you need to be totally obsessed to get into these that much). Anyway, I think the film itself is worth the money regardless. I certainly preferred it to 28 Days Later, for the laughs and the imagery.

Format: DVD
Lazy brit Shaun is witnessing his life crumbling on itself; His long time girlfriend, Liz, has just broke with him, his best friend Ed is a slacker who sells weed to make ends meet and constantly pisses off their roommate Pete, he's stuck in a dead-end job and his stepdad keeps reminding him what a terrible son he is for his mother Barbara.
Determined to improve his life, Shaun finds his perfect chance when a zombie outbreak starts to threaten London.

Edgar Wright's first feature film, Shaun Of The Dead is a rom-zom-com (Romantic Zombie Comedy) ingeniously funny, fast paced and with an ensemble cast featuring the top cream of british comedy, who pays homage to the horror movies of past decades with over-the-top gore scenes and laugh out loud gags of all kind.
This blu-ray is actually a real gift; The Reel Heroes Sleeve makes the all package look even cooler and the disc itself makes the purchase well worth the price. As every Wright's release, this edition comes with more than 2 hours of extras, including a commentary with the director and Pegg, a great quantity of behind the scene footage, easter eggs and the always pleasing UControl mode which allows the viewer to know everything about every scene.
Picture quality is standard HD, with bright colours and defined contours; However I was really pleased about the audio tracks which allowed me to get even the slightest audio in-jokes (like Barbara's very low UUUUWW, in the Zombie Walk scene).
If you're a Pegg-Frost-Wright fan and you still haven't gotten your hands on a blu ray of this movie, this is definetly a must check out!

Format: DVD
The funniest British comedy film since Four Weddings and a Funeral plays on its Englishness admirably, but in the hands of zombie movie and Resident Evil buff Simon Pegg also carries Romero's torch much more convincingly than 28 Days Later or the Dawn of the Dead remake. Of all the recent zombie movies this is the only one that imparts the apocalyptic isolation, tongue in cheek survivalism and plodding, shuffling terror of Romero's trilogy; and the Spaced twentysomething anomic humour sits well with a world gone to seed. Like when you watched Romero's films as a teenager, you'll laugh at the gore and silly zombies, but when you leave the pictures and step out into the cold night you'll see them everywhere you turn. As far as I'm concerned, it goes: Night of the Living Dead, The Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Shaun of the Dead.

By Albatross TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 7 Feb. 2015
Format: DVD
Many a film – and in particular zombie film – seems to be based on a pun (‘Flight of the Living Dead’ I’m looking at you). However, few actually exhibit enough originality to be worthy of the film they’re based on. ‘Shaun’ changes all that. In 2004 zombies were still relatively uncommon on the cinema screen. You had the ‘Resident Evil’ films and that was about it. Therefore, being dumped by one’s girlfriend on the same day the dead come back to life and start eating the living, was definitely something a bit different back then.

It’s fair to say that ‘Shaun of the Dead’ is a classic. Since its release it’s been imitated plenty of times and none of them have really done as well. The fact is that ‘Shaun’ is just damn funny, while at the same time being pretty horrific when it tries and even touching and sentimental when the mood takes it. Therefore, despite largely being lumped into the ‘horror’ genre, its appeal actually stretches much further to those looking for a good comedy, or even a ‘date movie’ to share with someone.

Simon Pegg plays not exactly a loser, but certainly an underachiever. His titular character, Shaun, is generally coasting through life, never really applying himself. All he wants to do is hang out at the local pub with his mate, Ed (who definitely IS a loser!). It’s no wonder his girlfriend, Liz, is getting more than a little sick of his lack of drive. However, that all changes when the dead rise from the grave and he hatches a plan to save those he loves (and even a few of those he doesn’t – Liz’s flatmate to be precise).

What follows is a jaunt across a zombie-infested London as they desperately try to get to safety. And, in Shaun’s mind ‘safety’ equals the local pub where he spends pretty much all his life.
