Shaun of the Dead

What's it about?

Shaun lives a supremely uneventful life, which revolves around his girlfriend, his mother, and, above all, his local pub. This gentle routine is threatened when the dead return to life and make strenuous attempts to snack on ordinary Londoners.

Why do we love it?

One of our all time favourites, Shaun of the Dead perfectly balances horror and comedy with pitch perfect writing, direction with extreme attention to detail and a hilarious cast.
