'Shaun Of The Dead' is a horror-comedy directed by Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star in it as the main characters Shaun and Ed.

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright came up with the idea for the film from their television series 'Spaced', mainly from an episode where Simon Pegg's character hallucinates a zombie outbreak. It is a fun play of the film 'Dawn Of The Dead'.

The horror-comedy movie was a success and led to Edgar Wright receiving critical acclaim for the movie along with its cast and crew. The story follows Shaun, who lives with his best friend Ed (Nick Frost) who has a tendency to leave the front door always open. Shaun is seen to be an easy-going character who lives a rather predictable life. The only unpredictable part of his life is his love interest Liz (Kate Ashfield) who wants Shaun to turn his life around. After the town is overrun with horror when a zombie apocalypse begins, Shaun paints his hands red in blood and takes it upon himself to save his close ones and shows bravado.

With all that said, here are some of the funniest quotes from the movie including the recurring “you have got red on you” quote!
