Shaun of the Dead - Cricket Bats versus Zombies
I recently had the opportunity to watch the movie: "Shaun of the Dead." It's an understated British comedy about a zombie apocalypse. I like the way that many in the cast don't notice the Zombie outbreaks because every commuter looks and acts like a zombie in the morning. At any rate, Shaun and his friends find their neighborhood overrun with zombies, gather their family and friends, and make their way to their local pub to make a final stand. It's a light-hearted take on Zombies. However, there are plenty to zombies to whack. But, since the U.K. has strict gun control laws, Shaun and his mates turn to cricket bats as their primary weapon.
