A great comedy of errors with dark cockney humor, Shaun of the Dead is still a great film the fourth or fifth time around.  Edgar Wright’s direction along with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s superb performances (whether they be facial expressions, body language, or delivery) made the most fantastic combination.  Although the slapstick has diminishing returns after multiple rewatchings, the more subtle jokes will get the chuckles when found.  It would take much to dethrone this movie as the king of zom coms.  If this movie and Hot Fuzz are as fun as they were then I can’t wait for the World’s End for too long then. There aren’t enough words for me to use to express my love for this film.
