I'm a big fan of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and looking for another good zombie comedy. Is this one any good?

After "Dead Hate the Living" I try not to watch anything that Fangoria supports. From the box art alone it looks like crap.

Don't know, but you may want to check out "Redneck Zombies". Shaun Of The Dead lifted a few bits from that.

Good Zombie Comedies:

- Braindead / Dead-Alive (NZ)
- Return of the Living Dead (USA)
- Return of the Living Dead II (USA)
- Shaun of the Dead (UK)
- Wild Zero (Japan)

And I think that's it of the "good zombie comedy" genre.

Return of the Living Dead is a classic. Go get that one.

Bio-Zombie was good... I heard there was a sequel called Bio-Cops, any word on that one?

For some reason I liked Dead Hate the Living, not sure why....

Stacy was pretty good.

And where's the love for Evil Dead 1-3?

I own it, but I haven't watched it yet. Hell, I've owned it for months, but after your comment, I may watch it this weekend.

I saw this last year at the Tribeca Film Festival with very high hopes and was disappointed. It has its moments, but it is no where near Shaun of the Dead. For all those who want to support Czech horror, rent it, but I can't recommend buying it. Good luck!

Don't forget Plan 9 from Outer Space. So bad, it's good.
