Shaun of the Dead has become one of the brightest and truly original comedy horrors that the UK has ever produced. Iíve been waiting so long for the genuinely talented team of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright to bring their innovative television style to the big screen. Expect even bigger things. But lets put aside all the positive plaudits this movie has been getting and concentrate on the recent Region 1 DVD release.

Having purchased the Region 2 UK release of the DVD back last September I wasnít expecting too many extra goodies to be added to the US disc. And between the two not much had changed. But then it is hard to improve on such a feature packed DVD release as this.

The difference with this DVD is its not one of those rushed discs jam-packed with lots of features that arenít particularly interesting, relevant or purposeful. It is more a professionally designed, animated and compiled series of behind the scene action, extra footage, outtakes, interviews, video diaries, flip charts, SFX comparisons, make up tests, posters, ad, trailers etc...

There is a shitload of stuff heaving here and each and every section you journey too on the well animated DVD is appealing. Even a special piece on plot holes in the movies are dealt with here in a distinctive manner which includes excellent artwork and Nick Frost commentary.

OVERALL SUMMARY
There are hours and hours of exciting material on the Region 1 DVD release of Shaun of the Dead, and footage and audio that fans of the movie will drool over like mindless zombies. Oh, and look out for the hilarious Man Who Would be Shaun outtake!
