    HAPPY 15TH ANNIVERSARY SHAUN! Just a forewarning I dealt with some copyright stuff leading up to uploading this video, so you may or may not see it reuploaded if it happens again!

    Keep that in mind and enjoy this video! It is probably the most fun I've ever had making a video in a long time. So have fun with a nice cold pint and wait for all this to blow over!

      Best line in ANY zombie movie: "Send more paramedics."
      EDIT My bad. COMPLETELY forgot about "Fuck-a-doodle-doo".

      "Why 'Shaun of the Dead' is a perfect zombie movie",
      "Why Edgar Wright is the only writer-director worth a shit anymore, and probably the best ever".

    Dianne isn't dead. She managed to beat her way through the zombies with Davids leg and climbed a tree that she slept in. When things went back to normal, she went to live with her aunt. Sorry if someone said this

                But Diane's not dead though it proved that in an extra in the dvd/Blu-ray. It wasnt a deleted scene so I consider it canon but we all got our opinions so you do you bro

                • The Misunderstood Assassin

                  I seriously need to watch "Shawn of the Dead" in full. And I'm not just saying that because I watched your video!

                      Friend: what’s your zombie apocalypse plan?
                      Me: Take car. Go to Mum's. Kill Phil - "Sorry." - grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over.

                        My friend was one of the zombie extras in this film. He took his girlfriend there on their first date. Being a zombie extra in a movie (especially a movie as cool as this) is quite possibly the coolest first date I've ever heard of anyone doing.

                        • Just Another Happy Humanist

                          Thanks for reminding me that Shaun of the Dead was made 15 years ago. Now you made me feel old.

                            Man it sucks I have a huge phobia of zombies... I really like the stories and comedy about zombies is 10/10 but I just get anxious watching even the dumbest of zombie movies or playing the worst zombie games

                                "Shaun of the Dead" is an excellent zombie movie because it balances humor with the dangers of a zombie infested world, that's something "Zombieland" failed to do...The movie was great until the Woody Harrelson character showed up ..😮

                                  Dianne survived! According to the DVD extras, she actually was able to bash through the horde for long enough to come to her senses, likely did the whole "pretend to be a zombie" thing again, climbed up a tree and stayed there for a week until the zombies were gone. Also she had to eat her boyfriend's own leg to not starve to death.

                                  No idea how, but it's canonical that by the end of the film she's living with her aunt in Birmingham.

                                        Its confirmed that Diane lived by hiding in a tree, and eating David's leg, for 3 days. Then the army rolled through, and she moved with her aunt.

As for whether there's some "message" behind that. One could argue that for all the "living" some people do by traveling the world, bungee-jumping and skydiving, and whatnot, that for all the posturing and "worldly status" one attempts to convey, it's possible to live *too* dangerously, and that there's nothing wrong with being in a bit of a rut, if it means you spend time with the people you care about.

                                                                          Also, I genuinely have absolutely no clue how in the hell Edgar Wright managed to feature comedy and tragedy in scenes without feeling utterly incoherent tonally and melodramatic.

                                                                                        The first time I got scared by a zombie was when I played Resident Evil (as a kid and you encounter that first one, that haunted me for years. But when I saw the Dawn of the Dead remake and saw them during the daylight, that for some reason really messed me up.

                                                                                        Then.. Then this masterpiece came along, I caught it when it was shown on TV and all my fears and the unsettlning feelings I had for zombies just went away.
