Simon Pegg, star and co-writer of my beloved “Shaun of the Dead”, and all-around fine person, has written a lovely essay on the incongruity of the running zombie, and why the dead should shamble rather than sprint.
I don’t know how I managed to miss this when it ran in the Guardian last November — I actually have people for this sort of thing — but with “Zombieland” still tearing around the megaplex, it’s still quite relevant.
And no, I still haven’t seen “Dead Set” yet. It’s downstairs by the projector, waiting to be watched, but some part of me is waiting for a Blu-ray release.
Yes, I have people for that, too …
