Shaun enjoys an easy life of watching TV, playing video games, and going to the pub. But he clashes with his work colleagues and his stepdad, and his girlfriend Liz dumps him for lacking drive and direction. After a night of drinking with his best friend Ed, they awaken to find the world in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. They spring into action to save their family and friends, with Shaun hoping to win back Liz’s heart. For there comes a day in every man’s life when he has to get off the couch… and kill some zombies.
The first film in Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, this comedy-horror is full of action, thrills, and hilarious gags.
