August 23, 2013 (San Diego) – Up until The World’s End, Edgar Wright had only three feature films to his directorial credit: Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010). However small his output, those films – Shaun of the Dead in particular – have spawned a huge cult following like few I’ve encountered in recent years. To those outside this circle, he’s an acquired taste. Shaun of the Dead, for example, was a dry take on the zombie apocalypse in fine British fashion. It’s laugh out loud funny if you get the sophisticated humor.
