(mbc.net) A classic of the 'undead' genre, it has since garnered a cult following and set a new standard for films of the horror-comedy genre.
Simon Pegg portrays Shaun,a salesman going nowhere in life. He is despised by his stepfather and smothered by his weed dealing roommate, Ed (Nick Frost). Liz (Kate Ashfield) is Shaun's girlfriend, who's peeved by Ed being tethered to the couple. Similarly, Liz's friends always accompany her to their sole hangout: a dingy bar named The Winchester.
The situation eventually results in Liz dumping Shaun, who responds by wallowing in a drunken stupor with Ed. When they awake the next morning news reports show zombies invading their small town; with no time to lose they head to The Winchester to seek refuge.
Shaun of the Dead was produced for a meager $5 million, but managed to garner $30 million in profit, deeming it a commercial success.
