6. 'Shaun of the Dead' (2004)
They say you always kill the thing you love. And those mad Brits, actor-writer Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright, kill their love for zombie flicks with laughs. It's the best way to do it. When Shaun (Pegg) and his drinking mate (a priceless Nick Frost) find their North London streets invaded by zombies, there's no recourse but to pretend they're also undead. There's never been a zombie movie as ferociously funny as Shaun of the Dead. In the spirit of George Romero, this movie knows that zombies shrieking "We're coming to get you!" is still an irresistible invitation.
