A Good Zombie is Hard to Find: Representations of Gender and Competing Ideologies in Shaun of the Dead

Blending several film genres, Shaun of the Dead is counted among a small but growing sub-genre of film known as romantic zombie comedy. As such, it is uniquely suited for gender critique. Containing all the defining filmic characteristics of the horror genre, with the added cinematic elements of both the zombie horror and romantic comedy sub-genres, Shaun of the Dead communicates gendered messages about the American sociocultural landscape that hold meaning for American movie-going audiences. Placing zombies in the ideological position of Other, the film depicts the tension and struggle among dominant and competing gender ideologies within the United States. Ultimately, this depiction serves to maintain and repair dominant American ideological values and power structures. Additionally, Shaun of the Dead provides a commentary on the prevailing American sociocultural fears of the time period in which it was released, allowing audience members to confront shared fears and overcome them onscreen.

Of What Will Happen -

"Though they self-deprecatingly call themselves Muggles - a Muggle is a person without the powers of a wizard - the authors of this rapt little volume appear to have magically transported every bit of information in the Potter epic into their own lively, teeming brains. They are as adept at parsing plot details as they are at anatomizing the characters' motives and predicting their next steps.
