Shaun of the Dead (2004)

When people talk about zombie movies, I generally tune out. Most of these gore flicks are made to shock and glorify death. This one is different.

Shaun sells TVs and plays video games. His best friend lives with him and has generally dampened his social life - check that, his life since high school. When zombies begin spreading their destructive virus throughout London by biting people, Shaun decides that life is worth defending and so are the people he loves.

The film is essentially an allegory on today's entertainment generation and how they are apathetic towards the things that truly matter - including each other.

If you don't mind a bit of over the top gore, this film is a riot to watch while maintaining a genuinely sensitive story.
