A more relaxing approach, however, is to be bored and vaguely annoyed by them, or, better still, not to notice them in the first place. This is the premise of Edgar Wright’s British comedy, which may be responsible for kicking off a new and specialized genre of slacker horror. Shaun (Simon Pegg) lives a supremely uneventful life, which revolves around his girlfriend (Kate Ashfield), his mother (Penelope Wilton), and, above all, his local pub. This gentle routine is threatened when the dead return to life and make strenuous attempts to snack on ordinary Londoners. The finale, in which the pub turns into an Alamo, is the bloodiest, most orthodox, and least witty part of the movie; far sharper are the early scenes in which Shaun wanders happily to the local store along a battered, zombie-dotted street and pulps his attackers with a cricket bat. The central joke is so snappy and well sustained that you barely catch sight of the ominous vision on offer: a country that already feels like death. -Anthony Lane Special features Simon Pegg’s Video Diary Casting Tapes Edgar & Simon’s Flip Chart SFX Comparison Make Up Tests EPK Featurette Funky Pete The Man Who Would Be Shaun Plot Holes Outtakes Extended Bits Photo Gallery 2000 Ad Strip Poster Designs TV Bits Theatrical Trailer Feature Commentary with Star Simon Pegg Feature Commentary with Cast Members Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Dylan Moran, Kate Ashfield and Lucy Davis Storyboard Comparison Zomb-O-Meter Product details Actors: Kate Ashfield, Tim Baggaley, Nicola Cunningham, Sonnell Dadral, Lucy Davis (II) Directors: Edgar Wright Format: Multiple Formats, AC-3, Closed-captioned, Color, Dolby, Dubbed, NTSC, Subtitled, Widescreen Language: English (Dolby Digital 5.1), French (Dolby Digital 5.1), Spanish (Dolby Digital 5.1) Subtitles: Spanish, French Dubbed: French, Spanish Subtitles for the Hearing Impaired: English Region: Region 1 (U.S. and Canada only) Aspect Ratio: 2.35:1 Number of discs: 1 Rated: R Restricted Studio: Universal Pictures Home Entertainment DVD Release Date: December 21, 2004 Run Time: 100 minutes
