While on vacation recently I ...

Question: While on vacation recently I came across a movie about zombies. The nonzombies were either British or Irish, most of the movie took place during the day, and it was more comedy than horror. The main character was a bit of a wussy guy who was trying to impress a girl with his zombie-fighting abilities, and the majority of what I saw took place in a pub. Can you tell me the title and whether it's available on video?Answer: You saw Shaun of the Dead (2004), a wickedly funny spin on George Romero 's seminal cannibal-zombie movie Dawn of the Dead (1978). Romero himself got a kick out of the sardonic spin writer-director-star team Edgar Wright and read more

Dead and Loving It

It's not a big-budget action flick like the upcoming Alexander or a high-toned biopic like next month's Ray, but Shaun of the Dead (opening Friday) is one of the best movies you're likely to see this fall. A "romantic zombie comedy" from England, Shaun is both a dead-on homage to such genre classics as Evil Dead II, 28 Days Later — and, of course, Dawn of the Dead — and pretty hilarious besides. Director Edgar Wright and star Simon Pegg spent 18 months crafting the screenplay, which follows Shaun, the titular slacker hero, as he attempts to win back the heart of his estranged girlfriend while fighting off legions of the undead. On their recent visit to the States, the Brits allowed TV Guide Online to pick their brains about their love of zombies.
