Shaun of the Dead

This is my movie pick of the month and most likely one of my favorite movies of all time. Shaun of the Dead is a part British horror, part comedy movie that was released in 2004. The synopsis of the film starts with brain-hungry zombies taking over the streets of London, yet an uninspired electronics salesman Shaun (Simon Pegg) can only think about Liz (Kate Ashfield), his girlfriend who just broke up with him. Shaun along with his freeloading roommate Ed (Nick Frost), manage to round up Liz, Shaun’s mom, and other friends to what they believe are a safe sanctuary. If you’re not a fan of zombie movies, I implore you to give this one a try. On the surface it’s a movie full of brain dead zombies and a few shocking moments, but unlike most horror movies, this one is brilliantly comical and witty.

Shaun of the Dead is available at selling for 25% off the list price. Be sure to browse Target’s DVD collection for other great deals.

  • Thanks everyone for the comments! I too loved that part when Shaun was totally oblivious to the bloody handprint on the glass door of the refrigerator while getting his soda and the slipping on blood in the convenience door! My fave part was when Shaun and Ed came out of the pub after drinking and they were singing that song ... not sure of the name ... something like "White lines ..." by Grandmaster Flash I think? ... and the zombie was outside making noises .. then they started singing the song and the zombie came in with his moan at the perfect time ... oh you have to see it to know what I'm referring to. :)
