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.
