Shaun of the Dead (2004)

Coming Out at 9 April 2004 in theaters.

Comedy, Horror

Shaun of the Dead is horror comedy drama film directed by Edgar Wright, who co-wrote it with Simon Pegg. The film stars Pegg and Nick Frost as friends Shaun and Ed, Londoners who are caught in an apocalyptic zombie uprising and attempt to take refuge in a local pub with their loved ones. The film co-stars Kate Ashfield, Lucy Davis, Dylan Moran, Bill Nighy, and Penelope Wilton. It is the first installment in Wright and Pegg’s Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, followed by Hot Fuzz (2007) and The World’s End (2013).

The film drew inspiration from the television series Spaced created by Pegg and directed by Wright. The title and plot also refer to the Dead films directed by George A. Romero. Principal photography took place across London and at Ealing Studios, and was shot over nine weeks between May and June 2003.

In London, electronic salesman Shaun has no direction in his life. He is disrespected by his colleagues, does not get along with his stepfather Philip, and is dumped by his girlfriend, Liz. Heartbroken, Shaun gets drunk with his dimwitted close mate, Ed, at their favourite pub, the Winchester. At home, Shaun and Ed’s flatmate Pete complains of a bite wound from a mugger, and berates Shaun to get his life together.
