This is so fun! Not sure if this is classified as a guest post, or a buddy post but it’s a fantastic collaboration with Realweegiemidget Reviews, and Thoughts All Sorts @2ReelQuirkyCats !

I had been invited to review a movie trailer of my choice and instantly Shaun of the Dead came to mind! It’s one of my all-time favourite movies! Hilarious, clever, freaky and best of all, a perfect metaphor for the complacency of human beings! It’s just brilliant!

Shaun of the Dead (2004)

A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living.

Starring:  Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Kate Ashfield

Director: Edgar Wright

Writers: Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright

I chose an extended trailer even though it reveals a little bit more of the movie than I would normally like to see. I did this, because if you haven’t seen it at this point, then perhaps if you see more of what it has to offer, you’ll be inclined to give it a try.

Honestly guys, you HAVE to see it! Yes, there are many squeamish scenes but it’s not all horror. I don’t even know if I would classify it as a horror because it is so funny! Not to mention, it delivers such clever (and bang on) commentary on the state of society. Many films have tried and failed, to emulate it since.

Imagine, a trailer that reveals so much and yet, it’s really only the brain stem of the complete zombie entrée. If that doesn’t scream “Awesome Movie” I don’t know what does. Shaun of the Dead offers so much more. Laughs, scares, and even tears. I dare you to watch this trailer and not want to watch the movie after. I know I did!
