Shaun's a simple man who prefers to spend his evenings at the pub with his best friend Ed. This doesn't sit well with his long-suffering girlfriend Liz, who wants more excitement in their relationship and less Ed. Both parties get their wish when London is engulfed by teeming hordes of hungry zombies. Suddenly they have more excitement than they can handle, and the pub appears to be the perfect stronghold to wait out the zombies. Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead
pioneered the "rom-zom-com" genre, and also brought Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to American movie theaters. Shaun of the Dead
screens at 11:55 p.m. Friday and Saturday (April 21 and 22) at the Landmark Tivoli Theatre (635 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.landmarktheatres.com
) as part of the Tivoli's Reel Late series. Tickets are $8.
