Quote from Shaun of The Dead (2004).
The first film in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto trilogy, Shaun of The Dead is the finest horror comedy I’ve seen. Not that it would have turned out any other way, considering Wright’s penchant for endlessly zany visual inventiveness, and his unnaturally effortless extraction of the exact amount of crazy, goofy, lovable and offensive from any characters played by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
There is nothing to dislike here: the soundtrack keeps up with the film’s breathless narration, the quick-zooms and dry British humor all render a fantastic vision of a film funny to its very bones. Love.
