Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Shaun of the Dead (Rogue Pictures)
The new British import film, Shaun of the Dead (opening September 23), sounds like something that was thought up in a pub after one too many pints. But the surprise of this self-described romantic comedy with zombies (that's a zom-rom-com) is that it's a clever homage to George Romero's original Dawn of the Dead . I spoke with Shaun's creators at the San Diego Comic-Con.
