Riding high off their decade defining TV series SPACED (1999), this gang of Brits translated their genius to the big screen and gave the world one of the all time great Zombie parodies while at the same time (like HOT FUZZ) carving out it's own top-spot within the genre it loves! What would a couple of modern day stoners do if the world were overrun with flesh eating corpses? Edgar Wright and company deliver a bloody great romp that only gets better and better with multiple viewings! 4K DCP PRESENTATION. 99min.

edgar wrightCapturing the "buddy cop" genre has been attempted before and after this brilliant little ditty (see Kevin Smith's COP OUT and Adam McKay's THE OTHER GUYS), but what makes HOT FUZZ such a contemporary classic is that it actually achieves it's own place alongside the films it's in love with: POiNT BREAK and BAD BOYS 2. This genuine British Bro-mance between real-life BFFs, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost will completely sneak up on you, as they strive for purpose through their small town shenanigans. Widescreen 35mm print courtesy of Universal. 121min.
