The Official Synopsis

There comes a day in every man's life when he has to get off the couch ... and kill some zombies. When flesh-eating zombies are on the hunt for a bite to eat, it's up to slacker Shaun (Simon Pegg) and his best pal Ed to save their friends and family from becoming the next entree. Satisfy your bloodthirsty appetite with the movie that masters of horror and film critics alike are hailing as the funniest and scariest movie of the year. Novelist Stephen King gushes "it's a 10 on the fun meter and destined to be a cult classic" and Devin Gordon at Newsweek calls "Shaun of the Dead" "a bloody hoot!" It's a screamingly funny outrageous Zomedy that will have you dying with laughter.
