SHAUN OF THE DEAD
Friday 9.30pm, 7mate (AV15+) ★★★
A man tries to reunite with his ex-girlfriend while saving his friends and family from zombies that have overrun London.
Simon Pegg co-wrote this inventive take on the zombie genre with director Edgar Wright, his collaborator on the British sitcom Spaced.
The first gag, I guess, is who would recognise a zombie, anyway, in North London? And who knew, until recently, the Poms could use cricket bats so efficiently.
Laughs keep on gushing. Also stars Nick Frost and Kate Ashfield.
