The British riposte, Shaun of the Dead, has no such problems with focus.
After all, it stars Simon Pegg, the star of Spaced, and it could be described as a spin-off from the zombie episode of this genius sitcom.
Also starring Dylan Moran and directed by Edgar Wright, Shaun of the Dead features a night straight out of your worst nightmares as the protagonists find themselves trapped in their local pub under attack from you-know-whats. Sound familiar?
