Day 21: 31 Days of Horror: Shaun of the Dead

Oh, how I love dark humor! Shaun of the Dead is a fantastically funny horror movie. It takes from different zombie horror films and mixes it with hilarious situations and ridiculousness. The violence and gore in this film isn't too bad to watch because the characters look silly defending themselves against the undead.

Shaun doesn't have much going for him in his life lately. He goes around behaving more like a zombie than anything, playing video games, working a crap job, and missing his ex. All he really wants is to have his girlfriend back, so he decides that he will do anything to win her over again. However, he ends up deciding to win her back when life is a bit more...chaotic than usual. Will he succeed? Only way to find out is to watch the movie!

This movie had me laughing throughout the majority of it. I loved the jokes, especially when Shaun's best friend, Ed, said to Shaun's mother, "We're coming to get you Barbara!" Great use of a line from Night of the Living Dead by saying "we're" instead of "they're." Zombieland is kind of like this film. If you're a fan of that movie, and haven't yet watched Shaun of the Dead, please do yourself a favor and watch Shaun! You don't know what you're missing until you watch it!
