The “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy” (note the British spelling is not a mistake – the title is British), a series of three movies combining the writing talents of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and the acting talents of Pegg and Nick Frost, began ten years ago with this little gem of a movie, Shaun of the Dead. Written as a spoof of zombie film classics, it combines the sensibilities of American zombie horror with British humor, and throws in a little romance for good measure. Is Shaun of the Dead the perfect comedy/horror film? Click through after the break to get my take.
