Personal notes



A man's uneventful life is disrupted by the zombie apocalypse. - Chris White

Shaun (Simon Pegg) doesn't have a very good day, so he decides to turn his life around by getting his ex to take him back, but he times it for right in the middle of what may be a zombie apocalypse. But for him, it's an opportunity to show everyone he knows how useful he is by saving them all. All he has to do is survive, and get his ex back. - Infest0125

Life isn't too good for Shaun (Simon Pegg). He lives with his best friend Ed (Nick Frost), neglects his girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) and despises his stepdad Philip (Bill Nighy). When Liz dumps Shaun, he vows to get his life back on track. Unfortunately, this is the day that the dead has decided to come back to life. With a cricket bat and Ed by his side, Shaun sets out to rescue those he loves and those he doesn't love, and heads to the safest place he knows, the Winchester. - Film_Fan

Shaun (Simon Pegg) isn't having the greatest of times: the staff at the store where he works doesn't take him very seriously as temporary boss; his girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) has had enough of always meeting at the Winchester Arms along with his best mate Ed (Nick Frost); and his relationship with his dad, sorry, stepdad Philip (Bill Nighy), remains heavily fraught. And now the living dead have risen and are spreading their zombie curse to everyone they can get their teeth into. Just doesn't seem worth getting out of bed some days. - Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Shaun (Simon Pegg) is a twenty-nine-year-old with no real ambition in life, much to the consternation of his friends, family, and fed-up girlfriend. With only a loyalty to his lazy best friend Ed (Nick Frost), a dead-end job where his employees step on him, and the good-ol' days, Shaun isn't exactly putting his best foot forward. But when the flesh-hungry undead start to rise in large numbers around modern-day London, Shaun must come to the rescue of his girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) and mother Barbara (Dame Penelope Wilton) before all hell breaks loose. With loyal Ed at his side to fight the good fight, the two will have to pave their way through zombie-ridden London as Shaun must take on the first real challenge in his life, with comical results. - mystic80

Shaun (Simon Pegg) is having many problems in life. His long-time girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) has dumped him due to their almost-daily expedition to Shaun's favorite pub, the Winchester. His temporary management job isn't going well at Foree Electronics, with his subordinates not even giving him the time of day. His deadbeat flatmates, Pete (Peter Serafinowicz) and Ed (Nick Frost), are at each others' throats. And, oh yeah, London is overrun with multitudes of zombies. In the midst of this, he must save himself, Ed, his ex, his mom Barbara (Dame Penelope Wilton), and his precious record collection. There is a time when a hero must rise, from his couch. - Matt Plenert
