New On Blu: Shaun of the Dead

New this week from Universal Studios is a new edition of Shaun of the Dead in a double feature with Hot Fuzz. Bother films were directed by Edgar Wright and star Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

"There comes a day in every man's life when he has to get off the couch... and kill some zombies. When flesh-eating zombies are on the hunt for a bite to eat, it's up to slacker Shaun (Simon Pegg) and his best pal, Ed (Nick Frost), to save their friends and family from becoming the next entree. Novelist Stephen King gushes 
Shaun Of The Dead is "a 10 on the fun meter and destined to be a cult classic" and 
Newsweek calls it "a bloody hoot!" It's a screamingly hilarious zomedy that will have you dying with laughter."

The Shaun of the Dead / Hot Fuzz Double Feature is available on Blu-ray and DVD
