  2. Very well done, I agree with zombieland's low scare factor score because it's really a comedy than a real horror film like Shaun of the dead.

  3. to clarify I'm comparing zombieland to Shaun of the dead because they're both comedies , I think the way I wrote my comment makes it seem as though I'm saying Shaun is a real horror film but that's not what I meant.

    1. I understood anyway :) both films are great! Zombieland is more silly and funny to watch, where as Shaun of the dead is more gritty and dark humour.
