Shaun of the Dead
Source: Catholic News Service
Mordantly funny but extremely bloody British import inspired by George Romero's "Dawn of the Dead" about a twenty-something slacker (Simon Pegg) who -- along with his oafish flatmate (Nick Frost) and former girlfriend (Kate Ashfield) -- try to hold off swarms of flesh-eating zombies while holed up in their favorite London pub. Part gorefest, part laughfest, part apocalyptic love story, director Edgar Wright's subversively humorous film cleverly combines black comedy and horror conventions, but its witty social satire is drowned out by its over-the-top carnage. Excessive graphic and gory violence, recurring rough and crude language, and much vulgar humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
