★★★★
Ireland
102 minutes
Directed by John Michael McDonagh
Starring Brendan Gleeson, Kelly Reilly

The penitent man has an opening line so striking even the priest expresses being impressed with it: “I was seven years old when I first tasted semen.” The abuser, it turns out, was himself a man of the cloth, now long dead. 620 more words

This 2004 very British Zombie film took the world by storm. Shaun of the Dead was even featured in Scream 4 as part of the film’s beginning – two characters were watching the movie on television while “ghost face” was busy murdering victim number three. 729 more words

Shaun of the Dead (2004)

Shaun of the Dead… Ah, those were the days. I watched this film around 2006 and to be honest this is still be my favorite. That time I also became Nick Frost and Simon Pegg devoted-fan. 602 more words
