Personal Quote:

There were zombie films prior to George [George A. Romero], but he pretty much invented the cannibalistic aspect. What we now think of as zombies really are Romero zombies. See more »

Trivia:

Not related to fellow British director Joe Wright. See more »

Trademark:

[Parody] Every film (and episode of Spaced (1999) (TV series)) is a parody of a certain genre or film (Shaun of the Dead (2004) parodies zombie horror, Hot Fuzz (2007) parodies police action-adventures, etc.). See more »
