Well I have seen it so I thought I would start the thread.

One of my favorate films of recent times and its british! its such a refeshing change from the Hollywood "action first plot second (if at all)" films which have been on our screens so much lately. I know the film companys just want to make money but they could try and write there own plot rather then do remakes and unnessasery sequels, I mean Freddy Vs Jason was going to far.

Hmm, bit of a rant but never mind.

it is an excellent british comedy and a great spoof on zombie films.

several references to "spaced" (a series which many of the films actors have come from) as well as a little aside joke about "rage infected monkeys" (28 Days Later) to support the british film and tv industry.

very british indeed so i wouldnt recommend it for americans who dont like british humour.

I loved this movie, I've seen it about 20 or more times. Ed is by far the greatest character ever, then again I've always liked Nick Frost.
