An awesome movie loosely based on "Dawn of the Dead" movie by George A. Romero. Instead of a direect parody, the movie takes a bunch of "normal" people with all their own personal problems and puts them in a middle of a zombie holocaust. Insanely funny, with the perfect mix of horror, comedy and romance without getting cheesy. Interestingly enough, on the DVD commentaries and on the Trivia Subtitles the director credits by saying what an awesome site this is...
*looking through Shaun's LPs for suitable records to throw at two approaching zombies*
Ed : Purple Rain.
Shaun : No.
Ed : Sign o' the Times.
Shaun : Definitely not.
Ed : The Batman soundtrack?
Shaun : Throw it.

Get the Shaun of the Dead mug.
Comedy...retake(ish) on Dawn of the Dead (see what they did with the name!) about the guy from Spaced (good Brit Sit-com) who is a bit dumb and having a shitty time. breaks up with his girl and suddenly zombies take over england (see the 28 days later huh!?)

so they go to the pub (with his flat mate, girl 2 friends and mum) and end up beating the pub owner do death with pokers to Queens 'Dont Stop Me Now'

VERY British (you probs wont get it is your American unless youre Brit-ified) and VERY funny.

also have they guy from Black Books
*hits zombie with car... screech to a halt*

Zombie: *with broken leg* Uurgg starts to get back up*
Shaun: Oh good!
*drive off*

Liek the best spoof ever made, it is about a zombie out break and this dude just sorta doesnt notice it and it just gets really stupid.
Quotes from shaun of the dead

"He's not my Dad, he's my stepdad!"

"Ed: What's the plan then?
Shaun: Right.
Cuts to dream sequence
Shaun: We take Pete's car, we drive over to mum's, we go in, take care of Phillip - "I'm so sorry Phillip". - then we grab mum, we go over to Liz's place, hole up, have a cup of tea and wait for this whole thing to blow over.
Ed: Why have we got to go to Liz's?
Shaun: Because we do.
Ed: But she dumped you!
Shaun: I have to know if she's all right!
Ed: Why?
Shaun: Because I love her!
Ed: All right... gayyy... I'm not staying there, though.
Shaun: Why not?
Ed: If we hole up, I wanna be somewhere familiar, I wanna know where the exits are, and I wanna be allowed to smoke.
Shaun: Okay.
cuts to dream sequence again
Shaun: We take Pete's car, go around mum's, go in, deal with Phillip - "Sorry Phillip!" - grab mum, go to Liz's, pick her up, bring her back here, have a cup of tea and wait for this whole thing to blow over.
Ed: Perfect!
Shaun: No, no, no, no, no, wait, we can't bring her back here.
Ed: Why not?
Shaun: Well, it's not really safe, is it?
Ed: Yeah, look at the state of it.
Shaun: Where's safe? where's familiar?
Ed: Where can I smoke?
Shaun and Ed pause then slowly make a realization
Shaun: cuts to dream sequence a third time Take car. Go to mum's. Kill Phil - "Sorry." - grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over. How's that for a slice of fried gold?
Ed: Yeah, boyyyeee!
Shaun and Ed clang weapons together"
