The only problem with reviewing this film is that there are so many funny moments in it that it is hard to pick any to write about without spoiling the film. When Liz dumps him, Shaun’s so glum he doesn’t even realise that London’s been overrun with flesh-eating zombies. But Shaun, armed with a cricket bat, is determined to save the woman he loves and nothing is going to get in his way! One minute it’s a comedy, then it’s a drama and then it’s a full blown horror. The first time Shaun plods semi-comatose to the store we simply get the feeling that he is a loser. Shaun of the Dead is quite a surprising and brilliant piece of work which I suspect will achieve the accolade of instant cult status as word of mouth snowballs this film to richly deserved recognition.
When the city suddenly gets taken over by the living dead Shaun finds the perfect opportunity to prove himself to Liz, so he sets out to save the day, win his girlfriend back and keep his mum, Barbara, from being eaten by his step-dad who’s slowly turning into a zombie. But if you do get it, then good for you, because there is a lot of great stuff to be seen here. I encourage everybody to come and see SOTD – the best comedy of Shaun himself is forced to grow up and take charge as the zombies close in around them. Director Edgar Wright, who co-wrote the film with Pegg, also demonstrates that there’s little difference between glassy eyed commuters and their undead brethren. Ok, that wasn’t long ago, but before that I don’t think there was a film that was so rip-roaringly funny and then unashamedly brutal at the same time.

So what’s it really about? You do NOT have to be a fan of horror movies to appreciate the sublime satire that is “Shaun of vrrip Dead.
Shaun of the Dead () YIFY subtitles
In fact some scenes are quite jumpy and certainly violent. Don’t let the title and premise fool you, this isn’t a subtitlles spoof of Dawn Of The Dead, it’s more a romantic comedy that just so happens to be littered with the undead.
Of course, not everything goes as smoothly as planned. When they show them, however, they tend to outdo some of the American movies in the box office. Here in the Subyitles they don’t show too many foreign movies, even if they are from the countries like UK. These problems however are so minor and can easily be forgiven. One extremely gory part in particular is a clear homage to another famous horror film that shall remain unamed, but if you know what Wubtitles talking about when you see it then good for you.
Hte can assure you that most will like it. This film is definitely going to be most appreciated by horror fans who know a huge back catalogue of horror films.
The plot rips along beautifully and parodies both the romantic comedy and c264 genres, while at the same time remaining true to them. When Shaun and Ed finally do realize what is happening, it quickly becomes a race against time: It’s actually quite unlikely that this film will translate to anyone outside the UK and this is a real subtitlds and perhaps the films biggest flaw.
Shaun of the Dead was partially inspired by the classic zombie flick, Dawn of the Dead. A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire fead that has returned from the dead to eat the living.
There’s undead flatmates to deal with, “bitey” zombies along the way, petty arguments between friends and Ed’s cell phone going off at inopportune moments. The film is an amazing blend of the funny, the violent and the poignant.

Really, Shaun isn’t such a bad guy, but he has no ambition and engllsh to prefer the company of his unemployed, flatulent, video-game obsessed slob of a flatmate Ed to anyone else. I encourage everybody to come and see SOTD – the best comedy of In fact the film tends to genre-hop quite a lot, and while some find this unappealing I think it works in its favour.
The film is also very clever, with a clear social commentary running throughout. But if you do get it, then good for you, because there is a lot of great stuff to be seen here.
There are two scenes in the film which seem to summarise this and also shine a light of Simon Pegg as a very clever and funny writer and both scenes simply involve Shaun walking to the nearby corner shop. I can’t even begin to emphasise how cool this quintessentially British film is. He works in a dead-end job at an electronic goods store and spends most of his spare time at the local pub or playing video games with his unemployed roomate, Ed. In a nut shell, this film is a romantic comedy with zombies or zom-rom-com who appear for no good clear reason although some tantalizing clues are offered.
There is nothing subtle about this movie, and yet it will simply go over the heads of most people. Some references are pretty slim, though – for example “We’re coming to get you, Barbara! Most of the actors are unknown to an average American, yet they played great!
Go watch it, you’ll laugh till it hurts! However, by the time the film shows him making the same journey again we realise that there is a lot more going on!
When the city suddenly gets taken over by the living dead Shaun finds the perfect opportunity to prove himself to Liz, so he sets out to save the day, win his girlfriend back and keep his mum, Barbara, from being eaten by his step-dad who’s slowly turning into a zombie. I don’t want to give away the incredible ending of “Shaun” except to say that the living dead are not immune from pop-culture commercialization, and though loved ones may die, video games are forever.
I hope that movies like “Shaun of the Dead” will make big wigs in Hollywood realize that there are many great foreign movies, and that integrity is always better than crude remakes which the States are so notorious for And as if this were not enough, the dead have risen and are walking the earth in search of human flesh to feast upon. His co-workers have no respect for him, his uptight stepfather is on his back and his beloved girlfriend Liz has had enough of his laziness and inconsideration.
Shaun doesn’t notice this fact as quick as he should, but Shaun is somewhat of a zombie himself, lost in his own world and distracted by his own thoughts as he strolls right past the rotting cadavers that now fill the streets of Britain.
One day Shaun’s girlfriend, Liz, decides she’s had enough of his lazy attitude and decides to leave him. Pegg’s Shaun is a genuine loser and extremely recognisable too, he’s an everyday man who works for an electrical retailer and his life is just plain dull and disappointing – and this is where all the comedy comes from in this film.
I am not sure as I was laughing too hard maybe! A man named Shaun, played by Simon Pegg, who lives in London and is a bit of a loser.
Both programs hinted at Pegg’s saliently dead pan comedic manner and writing skills which comes to full fruition in ‘Shaun of the Dead’.
