Zombies are one of the defining characters in horror, alongside vampires, werewolves, and Frankenstein monsters. In the post-The Walking Dead world, writers and filmmakers have tried with various levels of success to create something new and original from a sub genre that can often produce B-level dreck. My favorite film of 2016 was South Korean zombie flick Train to Busan. Just when I thought I had seen it all from zombies, I watched The Girl With All the Gifts, just released in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The film is written by Mike (M.R.) Carey who also penned the novel in 2014.

Spoilers below.

The World's End Blu-ray Box

The World’s End
Blu-ray l DVD l Instant l Trilogy
DIRECTOR: Edgar Wright
WRITERS: Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg
STARRING: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, Rosamund Pike
Universal Pictures
RELEASE DATE: November 19, 2013

There aren’t many words that could effectively describe my level of excitement for The World’s End, the latest movie from director Edgar Wright featuring the tag team of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. The movie completes the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, also known as the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, which began in 2004 with zom-rom-com Shaun of the Dead (one of my all-time favorites) and continued with another favorite, 2007’s Hot Fuzz.

The movie follows Gary King (Pegg), a man who’s had trouble with the whole “life” thing and growing up since his high school days. When younger King and his friends—Andy Knightley (Nick Frost), Steven Prince (Paddy Considine), Oliver “O-Man” Chamberlain (Martin Freeman), and Peter Page (Eddie Marsan)—attempted the Golden Mile, a 12-pub, 12-pint quest, but were unable to complete it. Now, 20 years later, he’s on a mission to reunite his friends and complete the task they failed two decades earlier. This is not an easy thing to accomplish as his friends all think rather poorly of King, but he finds a way to make it happen. The reunion goes somewhat smoothly for a bit (as smoothly as they could hope for, anyway), but a random encounter in one of the pubs uncovers some very strange happenings in the town of Newton Haven, and forces the friends to figure out what it is…and also how to get the hell out of there.

Movie Review: The World’s End

The World's EndThe World’s End
Directed by Edgar Wright
Written by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg
Starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Martin Freeman
Focus Features
Release Date: August 23, 2012 (U.S.)

“We wanna be free! We wanna be free to do what we wanna do. And we wanna get loaded. And we wanna have a good time. And that’s what we are gonna do. We are gonna have a good time… We are gonna have a party.”

That little speech – abbreviated slightly from its original version – plays a large role in defining the theme of The World’s End, the eagerly-anticipated closing chapter in the “Blood and Ice Cream” (or “Three Flavours Cornetto”) trilogy that director Edgar Wright and his frequent star and co-writer Simon Pegg created a decade ago with the romantic zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead and continued in 2007 with the blazing police action drama spoof Hot Fuzz. The speech was first heard in the 1966 biker movie classic The Wild Angels and was given by Peter Fonda’s character Heavenly Blues. I recognized those lines the moment they were played on the soundtrack.

The World’s End is, I believe, about the futility of trying to recapture your lost youth when you never lost it to begin with. But it is also about how when most of us enter adulthood we take it upon ourselves to abandon our youthful identities completely and replace them with domesticity and responsibility. The five main characters of The World’s End never learned to reconcile the buttoned-down, easy-going side of their personalities with the spirited sense of fun and friendship that defined them as people growing up. The lead character decided to remain a child forever but instead grew into a sad and bedraggled wretch of a human being while his four best friends became hollow shells of what they once were.

SDCC 2013: Edgar Wright’s ‘The World’s End’ Panel

SDCC 2013: The Worlds End panel banner

Film fans have patiently waited six years since 2007’s buddy cop spoof Hot Fuzz, for director Edgar Wright to conclude his Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, which began in 2004 with rom zom com Shaun of the Dead. Edgar Wright was reunited today with his co-stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost at San Diego’s Comic-Con for a discussion of the final film in the trilogy, The World’s End. The Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick moderated.

The panel kicked off with a video retrospective of the trilogy before introducing the team. Hardwick noted The World’s End has a Doctor Who vibe, and Wright agreed it’s as if The Doctor was hammered, so ‘Doctor Hooch’. Pegg said his character, Gary, is a bit of a dick, but with a dark truth that explains his dickishness. Still stuck in the nineties, dressing like a sad goth. Frost described his character, Andy as an angry, buttoned-down, “hard nut,” lawyer type.
