Shaun Of The Dead (2004)

Well more a comedy first and a horror film second but still rather effective as either. Our hero is Shaun who decides to turn his life around and hook back up with his ex after being dumped. Thing is zombies are invading all around and they end up finding themselves hunted. A group of non-zombies wind up hauling up in an abandoned bar while being attacked "Night Of The Living Dead" style. This film has personality, it was obviously written with a sense of fun and play and although it's not entirely an original idea this should give most anyone something to appreciate.
