Shaun Of The Dead
Review by Patrick Trollope BA(Hons) LBPPA

WELL who says remakes of remakes are bad? This is very definitely a spoof. This is the very best of British film making, even though based on not one, but now two American films of the same name. This has typical British humour and a real British twist to it, unlike the US ones. Don't bee fooled though it still has zombie violence, gore and lots of bad language. It is very hard not to like this film and it takes British film back to the good old days of Carry On films. The humor is difficult to relate to in text if you haven't seen the film, but it's very funny on the screen. The film is a real Zombie film that's sets a new path for the zombie flicks to follow, making you jump out of your seat at times and then making you giggle so hard you think you will feel as if you will choke. If only the Americans could do this with Scream.... We all want to know Any chance of a sequel to this? It would be far better than Scream 2 and ..... Sorry I for get to say the plot is based on a group of friends, if you can call them that. They gather at their local pub for a night of drinking and conversation and battle against hell-bent zombies. Also add to this a bit of romantic comedy.
