One of the Simon Pegg and Nick Frost classics, they have done so many films together, and this one has to be one of the best. And once again this is a different comedy to so many others, a horror comedy of a zombie apocalypse. But it’s brilliant, it’s cleverly done, hilarious and the relationship between Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on screen is of course great!
Simon Pegg plays Shaun, the plot revolving around him mainly. When his girlfriend of three years, Liz (Kate Ashfield) breaks up with him, he is destroyed. Shaun and his flat mate, Ed (Nick Frost), get drunk to try ignore his loss. However, in the morning, everything’s changed, not only is Shaun single, but “there’s a girl in the garden”, except she isn’t just a girl… An undead zombie apocalypse has taken toll, and they are everywhere. In a desperate flee to help everyone he can, Shaun makes a plan to save his mum and save Liz, however, that turns out it isn’t as nearly as easy as it sounds.
The film is hilarious, the humour is executed perfectly. Who thought a zombie film could be that funny? It has to be done well, if not a spoof, but it’s done well to execute as a comedy of two hilarious actors. I would definitely recommend this film as the men struggle to defeat the zombies throwing vinyls at one slowly walking towards them. The film is full of chaos and hilarity as they fight to dramatic music and desperately escape the deathly zombies. It’s such an easy watch, and a good laugh. Reliable and comical, chaotic and disastrous. Just sit down with a cup a tea and have a giggle.
