It was inevitable wasn't it?


DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978)
The second in Romero's 4 part "Dead Trilogy". Bunch of zombie invasion survivors hole up in a shopping mall and attempt to live in domestic and consumer bliss whilst fending off zombies and bikers.


SHAUN OF THE DEAD
A film some English blokes made. Bunch of zombie invasion survivors hole up in a boozer. A hilarious comedy that deals with the break up of relationships, losing friends and the death of a parent! And hitting big blokes with pool cues. Cool.

Is it that predictable?

And while I do love the characters in Shaun, they do at times seem too sitcom-ish to be real, as opposed to Dawn, whose protagonists, while perhaps not the most realistic ever put on film, do seem to have a slight bit more authenticity.

Granted, that difference is one of the things that makes Shaun so much fun. But it's nice to see "real" people in a zombie film, once in a while.

That said, it's a wonder I didn't like the Dawn remake all that much... Oh, wait, that's right: Running zombies.

Ain't that the truth. What a cop-out.
