My 50 Favorite Flicks • #17

A zombie movie finally makes the list in the top 20…

Shaun of the Dead (2004)

I remember going to the theatre to see this film, and thinking it was going to be a fun pointless parody of zombie movies. And as most of you know, I was dead wrong!  Shaun of the Dead is just as much as dramatic friendship/relationship film. It has heart and soul, mixed with lots of blood and guts.  This is also my favorite zombie movie, as it doesn’t hold back when things get rough.I love that Edgar Wright used practical effects in this as well. At the time, Wright’s directorial style was so new and fresh that it stood out from everything going on at the time.  Hot Fuzz and The World’s End are also very enjoyable to me, but they can’t touch Shaun.
