Edgar Wright was a huge fan of George Romero's living Dead series. But that's not the first reference, that ominous track that's pulled from the score of Donna today. Okay, fast forward. So these Romero references are all over. You see Sean Zombie like Shadow here. That's a play on this climactic moment, Day of the Dead, where we see this song Fast forward. So these shots, which are now part of a garage signature style, are called Crash Zooms. They're often used for something dramatic, like how Sam Raimi used them in Army of Darkness, another horror movie staple is a mirror scare. It's framed exactly like this one from an American werewolf in London. You know, the front door was open again. Next, listen to the way Pete answers his phone. Come on. It was pretty, Does it? The exact same way in space Space is a surreal sitcom where Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright first Collaborated. Okay, Now we're getting into some deep cuts. Listen to this radio broadcast here that Shawn is ignoring six unexpectedly. So this is actually referencing night of the living dead when a news broadcast says this coming from a meeting regarding the explosion? Yes, yes, that was the subject of the meeting.

Fast forward to thing a shot for shot match with this scene in Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Moving forward restaurant Sean forgot to get a reservation to it's called Full Cheese that's named after Italian director Lucio Fulci, known for classic cult horror films. Next, Ed asks, Clyde is an orangutan from the 1978 comedy Every Which Way But Loose This'll was actually Nick Frost Go to party trick. This is an homage to the horror director John Carpenter style of shooting in movies like How The Wind Forward Okay, stop pizza shop Bubbs that's named after the Zombie and David, they call him Bub. That's what the club fellas just call my father and then seriously, the name tag of this zombie, says Landis. As in John Landis, he's the director of Michael Jackson's Thriller video and an American werewolf in London. Mary and then Shaun and Ed go through a very eighties record collection. Um, every Monday number, you impressing poeple, right? Definitely no Batman uh, no.

Yeah, boy, just this argument about whether to call the undead zombies. It's a joke about the fact that most zombie movies avoid using that term entirely in the living dead. Siri's. They're called ghouls. In 28 days Later, they're called the infected Cool, then, ah, horror moment things. Bathroom scene plays out similarly to the iconic psycho shower scene car. Sean Ben tells people, which is why the evil force says, moving ahead. Frost gives us his best Matthew McConaughey, and in this shot where Sean enters cricket, bat first is what Edgar Wright called Temple of Doom style. Fast forward is called Sean Flash. What do you have in mind? As in Flash Gordon in 80 SciFi. OK, moving forward here, ask Sean. Thinking of zombies is actually a really zombie from 1941. That yellow head zombie is tires from space. You like eight people. Then you see Lucy Davis. They're throwing darts. That's a nod to the dartboard in the booth bar owner here thrown into the jukebox. It happens the same actor over here in Brandon. And then Sean wears a red tie just like Christopher Walken used a deer hunter. I think we should all do it. Find people operate one. Got one right here. Sean quotes British philosopher Bertrand Russell has booked from Russell once said, the only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation counts. Is a celebrity appreciate the relevance of that now, Okay, when Shawn start shooting zombies, that's a callback in episode space for signing pegs. Character plays too much Resident evil Don't sneak up on me like that. That episode initially inspired. Okay, and then Barbara Zombie bite it mirrors the mother's bite in the zombie comedy.
