ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Chaos, our 80’s slashaholic, has done it again by unearthing this 80’s slash treat. When a sorority prank goes awry, and the house mother is killed, someone decides to get revenge. But who is the killer? Could it be anyone we could have possibly met prior to the climax? Possibly not. Hard to figure out the killer if you don’t meet them.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
Chaos and Carnage pulled out a pick that was long overdue for the podcast, the classic horror comedy Shaun of the Dead. See the Zombie Apocalypse through the eyes of a group of London slackers as they hilariously try to survive by fighting their way to their favorite pub.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD (EPISODE 234)
Developed from ideas director/co-writer Edgar Wright and co-writer/star Simon Pegg used for their television series Spaced, Shaun of the Dead is a pitch-perfect comedic tribute to the Dead films directed by George A. Romero. The film premiered in London in 2004 and was met with critical acclaim and commercial success.
It was ranked third on the Channel 4 list of the 50 Greatest Comedy Films and quickly acquired a cult following. Stylus Magazine named it the ninth-greatest zombie film ever made. Time named it one of the 25 best horror films, and Bloody Disgusting ranked it second in their list of the ‘Top 20 Horror Films of the Decade’. Most recently (2016), Empire ranked it 6th on their list of the 100 best British films, with their entry stating, “it’s a masterpiece, right up there with Evil Dead II as one of the finest horror/comedies ever made.”
George A. Romero himself was so impressed with Pegg and Wright’s work that he asked them to appear in cameo roles in the 2005 film Land of the Dead. Quentin Tarantino described the film as one of his top twenty favorite films made since 1992, and horror novelist Stephen King described it as “a ’10’ on the fun meter and destined to be a cult classic”.
Shaun of the Dead is streaming now on Hulu.
