has anyone seen this? It's not my type of thing usually but I'm tempted. How gory is it?

No way! I hate zombie films, even spoof ones.

Yes it does get quite gory in the second half but very funny if you like the Spaced/Black Books type of comedy. I saw at the cinema when it came out and did have to close my eyes a couple of times as more 'zombie-ish' than i had thought. Hope that is helpful....

cheers tallgirl. So do I need to have a pillow handy? And why do I need a pillow? I should be able to just close my eyes and block my ears but that wouldn't be enough? sorry, just thinking aloud

Saw this on a plane and was suprised how much I enjoyed it. The gory bits are gory but not scary IYSWIM because theres no horror filmy tension build up (and I am def a pillow person )Actually very funny but bit sad too in places.

JuniperDewdrop · 08/09/2004 22:19

Sad??? I wasn't expecting sad!! I can just about cope with gore but I'll be crying too.

Yes think I'll get it now as DH is really keen. thanks
