    HAPPY 15TH ANNIVERSARY SHAUN! Just a forewarning I dealt with some copyright stuff leading up to uploading this video, so you may or may not see it reuploaded if it happens again!
    Keep that in mind and enjoy this video! It is probably the most fun I've ever had making a video in a long time. So have fun with a nice cold pint and wait for all this to blow over!

    But Diane's not dead though it proved that in an extra in the dvd/Blu-ray. It wasnt a deleted scene so I consider it canon but we all got our opinions so you do you bro

    I seriously need to watch "Shawn of the Dead" in full. And I'm not just saying that because I watched your video!

    Friend: what’s your zombie apocalypse plan?
    Me: Take car. Go to Mum's. Kill Phil - "Sorry." - grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over.

    My friend was one of the zombie extras in this film. He took his girlfriend there on their first date. Being a zombie extra in a movie (especially a movie as cool as this) is quite possibly the coolest first date I've ever heard of anyone doing.

    Man it sucks I have a huge phobia of zombies... I really like the stories and comedy about zombies is 10/10 but I just get anxious watching even the dumbest of zombie movies or playing the worst zombie games

    "Shaun of the Dead" is an excellent zombie movie because it balances humor with the dangers of a zombie infested world, that's something "Zombieland" failed to do...The movie was great until the Woody Harrelson character showed up ..😮

    Dianne survived! According to the DVD extras, she actually was able to bash through the horde for long enough to come to her senses, likely did the whole "pretend to be a zombie" thing again, climbed up a tree and stayed there for a week until the zombies were gone. Also she had to eat her boyfriend's own leg to not starve to death.
    No idea how, but it's canonical that by the end of the film she's living with her aunt in Birmingham.

    Its confirmed that Diane lived by hiding in a tree, and eating David's leg, for 3 days. Then the army rolled through, and she moved with her aunt.

    By the way, Diane doesn’t die - she somehow survives through the horde and hides up a tree.

    21:35 - My perception of the ending was that Liz's embracing of the more repetitious lifestyle was more a sense of having experienced enough excitement for one lifetime, and is content with sharing her life with Shaun, rather than seek out adventure. As for whether there's some "message" behind that. One could argue that for all the "living" some people do by traveling the world, bungee-jumping and skydiving, and whatnot, that for all the posturing and "worldly status" one attempts to convey, it's possible to live *too* dangerously, and that there's nothing wrong with being in a bit of a rut, if it means you spend time with the people you care about.

    Also, I genuinely have absolutely no clue how in the hell Edgar Wright managed to feature comedy and tragedy in scenes without feeling utterly incoherent tonally and melodramatic.

    A friendly reminder: Diane didn’t die in the horde, it was cannon that she climbed on a tree and waited everything out

    In the extras of the film it tells you that Dianne is still alive she hid in a tree just outside of the Winchester and waited up there for a few hours even remaining up there after Shaun exited the cellar

    This movie quite honestly "cured" my fear of zombies.
    The first time I got scared by a zombie was when I played Resident Evil (as a kid and you encounter that first one, that haunted me for years. But when I saw the Dawn of the Dead remake and saw them during the daylight, that for some reason really messed me up.
    Then.. Then this masterpiece came along, I caught it when it was shown on TV and all my fears and the unsettlning feelings I had for zombies just went away.

    This was fantastic and I applaud your analysis! Only, Diane didn't die. In the extras menu of the DVD there is a clip about what happened to Diane after she left the tavern. She ended up hiding in a tree and eating her boyfriends' leg so she didn't starve to death, then she was rescued. I feel the point of that was, like you said, she was the forgiving side of Liz. and forgiveness might be dangerous and scary but if you forgive and persist you will make it out a better person.

    At around the 17:00 mark or so you started repeating certain points like Shaun's heart to heart with his father and Shaun's mother's care for him and the group. I'm not sure if this was a simple accident, rephrasing and expansion of an idea, or if you were intentionally repeating yourself to prank us and see if you could catch us in, or wake us up from the zombie like stupor that could have come over us after watching a 20 minute film break down. Some of us might be watching simply to view something, where as others might be watching to see your interpretation, nonetheless it's possible to zone out mid video and idk, that was an interesting little segment, whether intentional or not. Great analysis man! I love this movie too. One of the first films to wake me up to the underlying intricacies of film.

    Hmmm paying no mind to the zombies before he realized it isn't totally true. He thought it was people being weird (like how he saw the zombie chasing the pigeons) or just drunk (the people "kissing", the alleyway zombie that moans with their song, and Mary before they listen to the newscast). Everytime they revealed to the audience that they were zombies (apart from Mary and alleyway zombie), Shaun and Ed wasn't looking at them (the bus passed in front of the zombie before it bit the pigeon and then the zombie disappeared so Shaun didn't see the aftermath, the reveal of the people "kissing" was actually a zombie eating someone was after they turned around). The only thing he knew was that a lot of people were getting sick.
    The bloody handprints and the slippery floor in the store were suspect thou. Either he wasn't really paying attention or thought it was some kids doing a prank.

    Actually in the UK, we do just call our friends ''babe'' every now and then. Kinda like how we sometimes call people ''luv''. A nice call back to Shaun of the Dead.
