An oral history of the horror-comedy zombie classic

Edgar Wright's rom-zom-com is a bloodstained love letter to the undead genre. Now the film's cast and creators relive this slice of fried cinematic gold.

But soon he's involved in a blend of deadpan humour and horror, ending in a John Carpenter-like siege - in the pub. Penelope Wilton and Bill Nighy add some feeling as Shaun's parents.
