Episode notes

Shaun of the Dead

Thus begins the first episode in our mini-series covering the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, starting with 2004’s Shaun of the Dead. We are so lucky to be joined by screenwriter Michael Varrati, whose horror screenwriting expertise is truly invaluable to the conversation. Plus, Alonso won’t stop saying the words “Blow Mold.” Drea begs people to wear a damn mask. Ify has purchased a very expensive new camera. And Michael demands that America give Kylie Minogue the respect she deserves. Plus, we have another installment of the ‘Christmas Zaddy Christmas Movie Minute.’ And, as always, ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Johnny Depp resigns from the upcoming Fantastic Beasts movie and Chris Rock hates Civil Rights movies.
