Edgar Wright’s horror-comedy cult classic film, Shaun of the Dead, follows the title character through his mundane life in London. Joined by his immature and ever-present roommate, Ed, Shaun excels at nothing except drinking pints of ale and watching television, which causes friction with his girlfriend. Before Shaun can save his relationship, however, he’s got to fend off a horde of zombies that are slowly taking over the city. Armed with a cricket bat and a vague sense of direction, Shaun must rescue his friends and loved ones, and bring them to the only safe place he can think of – the pub. Ridiculous and heartfelt, Shaun of the Dead is both the funniest zombie movie and the scariest romantic comedy you’re likely to ever see. (Re-scheduled from a rain-out in 2007).
This year’s Back-Alley Summer Cinema Series is brought to you by Kadinger Event Production, WHYS community radio, Benny HaHa Art Supply and Gallery, and of course, the fine folks typing these words, Volume One Magazine.
