I’m temporarily taking over the film blog to share one of my favorite examples of a little known Zombie movie subgenre: the Rom-Zom-Com (or a Romantic Comedy, with Zombies).
In Shaun of the Dead (2004), when our hero, Shaun, messes up his anniversary plans with his girlfriend, Liz, he gets dumped. His plan to win her back gets drastically altered when the zombie apocalypse hits. Shaun and his slacker friend, Ed, venture out to rescue Shaun’s mom, step-dad, (ex)girlfriend, and her flatmates and take them to the safety of their local…pub.
Enjoy the trailer, check the movie out at the library, and don’t forget to check out our One Book, One College website for more information on zombies!
