When conceiving Shaun of the Dead, co writer and director Edgar Wright drew inspiration from George Romero's zombie classic Dawn of the Dead and John Landis' horror comedy An American Werewolf in London as well as Phillip Kaufman's 1978 production Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Shaun of the Dead is the first film of what is famously known as the 'Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy', the other two films included are Hot Fuzz and The World's End. The name came about because all three films share similar themes of a man having being forced to grow up and move on with his life. Each of the films also features a scene in which a character buys an ice cream.
