We’ve made no secret of the fact that “Shaun of the Dead” is a practically perfect movie. Practically perfect in every way possible. Mary Poppins can only wish to be this damn perfect is basically what we’re saying.
One of the defining moments is Shaun and Ed’s first encounter with zombies (before they even agreed to start using the zed-word, in fact). The girl in the garden and her hulking friend.
Played by Mark Donovan and Nicola Cunningham the garden zombies provide us our first insight of the absurdity that define Shaun and Ed’s problem solving process. What do you when faced with zombies? Well, if you’re Shaun and Ed, you collect a laundry basket full of bits and bobs to fling at them gleefully.
This week’s for you, Garden Zombies! You may be moaning, shambling death machines but you’re also a blast at parties and sure do make a cute couple.
