Shaun of the Dead Screen-used Props

I've owned one of these props for about a year now but the other two are new. Figured I'd post them all together.

The first is the stunt zombie torso for the large zombie in the yard scene. This was used for the shot from the rear where Ed (Nick Frost) hits the zombie in the head with a shovel. The torso itself is a fiberglass shell with hardware inde for mounting it to a base. The head is licone.


Next is the pool cue used by Liz (Kate Ashfield) to attack the landlord of the Winchester (Steve Emerson). Rather than use a real cue, the filmmakers took a light plastic tube and formed the handle out of foam. They then created a lightweight wooden tip for the section where the cue is narrower than the tube.

The final prop was never actually screen used. This foam rubber teapot was made for the yard scene where Shaun and Ed through their laundry basket full of kitchen devices (including the toaster with no cord - a pet peeve of mine). The filmmakers made more items than they actually could fit into the basket in case they had to do more takes than planned and some of the items were damaged.

Some of my other SOTD Goodies

I'm not sure quite how to sum up how impresve this collection is. Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorite horror movies and to own one piece of the films history would be a dream come true but this is down right amazing.

Awesome scores!

That last fat zombie is a replica, right?

If you don't mind me asking, who made that one?

Thanks guys...I appreciate the comments.

I honestly can't was a few years ago and there were only a couple made. This was the first one and it was listed on ebay a few times and it didn't sell. Eventually the price went down quite a bit and I picked it up. I saw another copy at Maskfest last year and it's the only other one I've seen.
