  • Studio: De Wolfe Music
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 105 Mins

Overview:
Just as Londoner Shaun (Simon Pegg) decides to get his aimless life back on track, the capital becomes Zombie Central as the dead rise to eat the living. If you like Pegg and director Edgar Wright's cult Channel 4 series Spaced, you'll enjoy this deadpan blend of undergraduate humour and hardcore horror, which ransacks George A Romero's Dead saga and virtually every Italian zombie flick for inspiration. It may seem like a one-joke conceit but you do actually care about the characters, which sustains the narrative. Shaun's mates are all played by familiar TV faces - Spaced's Nick Frost, The Office's Lucy Davis, Black Books's Dylan Moran. But the real stars are his mum, the magnificent Penelope Wilton, and stepdad, Bill Nighy, who move the splatter farce into more resonant areas. It's proof that British film comedy can work without Richard Curtis.
