As an explanation for how he was able to escape from the zombie hoard, Shaun (Simon Pegg) mentions that it is common knowledge that zombies are very slow, so they can be easily outrunned. This is undoubtedly a jab at 28 Days Later... (2002) and Dawn of the Dead (2004), two movies that had started a trend of featuring running zombies. See more »
My gosh, this is funny. One of the extras on the DVD for Shaun of the Dead, and specifically, it's one of the three supposed plot holes that the film itself leaves open, being explained away. The main character by voice over tells us exactly what happened in the situation in question(which you should not know about if you haven't already watched the movie, and if you have, you'll figure out what it is), as comic strip graphics(done by Edgar Wright, the multi-talent) depicts it. This is hilarious and biting, pun intended, and, as should be no surprise, the 43 seconds that this has a running time of goes by immensely quickly. The whole thing is set to The Gonk, and the drawing style is cool and not excessively flashy. I agree with one of the other reviewers, that these were arguably not necessary, but that the people had so such a good time making the flick and thus made these, as well. What is told in these is in the FAQ for the title, as well, if you can't catch these anywhere. As opposed to the picture, there is no strong language(with one possible exception) or violence and gore in this. I recommend this to any and all fans. 8/10
