It's an excellent moment indeed, and a brilliant movie all-around.

But it's well worth noting that this scene is clearly an homage to Captain Rhodes from Romero's DAY OF THE DEAD. A scene which still manages to top even the awesomeness of the homage, for the original has three points in its favor: 1.) Bub, 2.) the unrefrigerated pig intestines that made the cast gag, and 3.) Pilato's legendary ad-lib, "CHOKE ON 'EM!"

Of course, maybe it's not an homage, as I don't recall hearing that said outright by Wright and company. But it seems pretty obvious to me.

Yeah, when it comes to zombies tearing somebody apart, it just doesn't get any better than that infamous scene from Day of the Dead. While this Shaun of the Dead scene is a nice homage, it's nowhere near as hilarious and awesomely gory as the Captain Rhodes scene. Don't worry though, we've already covered that scene in our Greatest Horror Movie Moments and you can check it out here:

The unfortunate "that guy" in this scene is played by the very funny Irish comedian Dylan Moran. He does a great job of playing assholes just waiting to be dismembered. Check out "Black Books".

Once again, thanks for more wonderfully traumatizing gifs.

Yea, I watched this movie with some friends not too long ago and loved every minute. And everyone pissed themselves at this scene. My favorite scene would have to be when Ed and Shaun push the zombie chick onto that pipe in the yard (and being able to see their faces through the hole when she gets up), classic.

I have to say, I thought Hot fuzz was a better. and Purple Man: I love black books, it has to be one of my favorite British comedy series'.

Nice choice, I was just waiting for him to go and I was much appeased with the gore.
Know its expected but I must give props to my fave scene with the snooker cues bashing in that landlord zombie to the jukebox blaring "Don't Stop Me Now". The film is just so classic and funny (its always regularly shown on our tv channels like ITV2) British humour is alive and kicking [arse].

Ah, Shaun of the Dead. One of my all-time favorite movies (though I did like Hot Fuzz a smidgen better. It's very close, of course, and took me a while to decide), and jam-packed with so many funny moments I can't even keep track of them all (every time I watch that movie, I laugh at something I had totally forgotten about).

It's hard to choose a favorite part; the part in the bar where everyone's moving along to that Queen song is good, or when Shaun is looking out the mailslot for zombies, and doesn't see them at first. But in the end, I'm going with the second time Shaun goes to the store (after the zombies are out and about), and is completely oblivious to all the carnage around him (the part where he slips on the blood = pure fried gold). Great scene, great movie.

Also: while I did find the homage to Rhodes' death awesome, I also think the original scene was better (mainly for the "Choke on 'em!" bit. Last words don't get much more awesome than that).

I especially like how after his legs come off, "the twat's" girlfriend takes his leg and rushes out into the crowd to still try and save him.

then she sat in a tree for a few days, surviving by munching on his leg. (but that last bit was only explained on the dvd)

All things considered, this may have been the most satisfying death in all of horror...I mean the huge was SUCH a monumental douche!

I couldn't help but think to myself that Timesplitters 2 doesn't support a drop-in/drop-out co-op feature.

This is one of my favorite movies, but I think the Captain Rhodes death scene was about as good as it gets dismemberment wise.

And I know what your getting at Nick, I noticed that too.

I love all of this movie, but the beginning is probably my favourite part, especially when the first zombie walks into their living room. Shaun's expression is classic, especially his line 'For God's sake, ooh, he's got an arm off!'
Also:
'Are they still out there?'
'I don't know, we've shut the curtains.'

After seeing most of all horror films, I found Shaun of the Dead (SOTD) to be a bit slow, limited, not funny and not scary. I believe the proper one word explanation of SOTD would be "insanity" and that is all. For the funniest, darkest and scariest horror, J-horror has them all beat.

That movie gets better each time you watch it too.
Favorite scene has got to be the zombie fight in the bar set to Queen.

I liked where they were acting as zombies to get to the pub myself. But that is just my personal preference.

Although Shaun of the Dead is hernia-inducing comedy, you should check out the Australian budget flick 'Undead.' I guarantee you'll cause intestinal bleeding from laughter.

I'VE seen 'Undead' and nearly died from boredom - give it a miss.
But, on a lighter note, check out Dylan Moran's multiple hilarious performances, alongside Mr Michael Caine, in 'The Actors' if you can track it down:

I love the scene when they act like zombies and the zombies fall for it. I think that trick was used in The Walking Dead also.

I had a tune in my head before Watching that film."I tune in thinking what if they have that song here?"So I kinda complain that the artist came on over the Jukebox at the Bar but it wasn't my song.But it actually put a smile on face as the actions with the sounds was going along with it.Then finally what I had been longing for was at the very end of the Credits.The song was well fitting what a good way to end the Film!
