20. Shawn of the Dead

Edgar Wright and Simon Penn brainchild Shawn of the Dead remains one of the best horror-comedies in recent memory. It’s so good, in fact, that it was able to foreshadow its own climax. During an early scene in the Winchester pub, Ed says, “We’ll have a Bloody Mary first thing, have a bite at the King’s Head, a couple at the Little Princess, we’ll stagger back here and then bang! Back at the bar for shots.” This is actually the whole plot of the movie. Well played, Ed.
