We were just discussing Shawn of the Dead an hour ago, and now there’s a trailer for a new film that looks an awfully lot like it. It’s another British comedy about zombie killing, although this time, the central group are Cockneys. You know, the ones ‘at taulk loike Moichael Caine. That’s about as good as I can write the Cockney accent out.
It’s a lot more firepower-focused than Shaun of the Dead ever was, and even though I’m almost on zombie tilt from how pervasive they are in pop culture, I’ll be damned if I don’t want to see this. Yes, that is the guy from Snatch and Lock Stock, and yes he is murdering zombies with automatic weapons. Amazing.
You know, the phrase “killing zombies” or “murdering zombies” doesn’t actually make sense, though we’ve always used it. They’re already dead!
