The tag line alone is enough to get this 2004 Edgar Wright hit on our list. For those of you who don’t recall, here is the synopsis for the film:

A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living.

For a far more detailed look at the merits of the film, please see our previous Shaun Of The Dead, horror plus comedy feature. Shaun Of Dead dances the line between parody and homage beautifully; and includes some very creative zombie singing, and dance-kill scenes. It could be argued that this film helped the current zombie revival along, or that it simply benefited from it. Either way, it is uproariously funny and exceedingly well done. Take a look at the trailer to remind yourself of all the fun there is to be had with Shaun, and his band of merry zombie-impersonators.

  1. Young Frankenstein was a good film and so was Zombieland. The others were complete crap.

    As for the Rocky Horror Picture Show, yes, it wasn’t a brilliant film, but as far as musicals go, it was one that I didn’t find stupid and boring as hell. You want to talk about crappy films? How about Grease? Grease was awful and as most musicals go the songs were idiotic.

    I for one cannot understand the fascination with Grease, yet a film like Rocky Horror gets put through the wringer. Then again, most people are followers and will simply say how they don’t like something because it’s the in thing to do.

    I for one, think for myself, and I enjoyed the flick for what it was: A silly take on classic horror films. But let’s look at it this way, if the Rocky Horror Picture Show was so terrible, then why is it still discussed today?

    • The article is titled “10 Ridiculously Fun ‘Horror’ Films For Halloween.” Why the heck would you watch Grease on Halloween?!

      RHPS is a cult classic. It is beloved by fans. You’re not going to meet anyone here who hates it, (obviously, since it made the list).

      Plus, saying you hate musicals doesn’t make a good argument on why people should love *your* favorite musicals. It’s essentially admitting that you know nothing about the genre. It’s a wonder you don’t think Grease 2 is worse than Grease. Momma Mia was also hard to sit through. So was Across the Universe.

  2. Hi

  3. This is a great list! Thanks!
