2) Pulp Fiction – The section where Vincent plunges the syringe into Mia’s chest was actually filmed by having John Travolta pull up the syringe from Mia’s chest and into the air, and was later edited backwards to make it look like he was injecting her rather than pulling a syringe from her chest.

3) The Blair Witch Project – There is a spoof version of the acclaimed horror film called “The Tony Blair Witch Project”. Here’s the IMDb link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0252060/

4) Clerks – It was named by Premier in its following top 20 list: “The 20 Most Overrated Movies Of All Time”

5) Shaun of the Dead – When Shaun tells Ed that he shouldn’t say ‘zombie’ (“the Z-word!”), it’s actually homage to the fact that George A Romero never used the word ‘zombie’ in any of his zombie films.

Rom-com + Zombies = Shaun of the Dead
