A smash hit in the U.K., this "rom zom com" (romantic zombie comedy) follows the bloody funny adventures of underachiever Shaun (co-writer Simon Pegg) and his best mate Ed (Nick Frost) as they cope with a zombie invasion of North London. The two losers grab whatever is at hand (cricket bat, shovel, LP) to repel the attacking zombies, summoning reserves of strength they didn't know they possessed and straining muscles they forgot they had. Rounding up friends and family, and pressing on towards the sanctuary of a local pub, all that stands (or lopes) in their way are hordes of the flesh-eating undead.
