The Winchester shoot was a tough one and definitely the trickiest part of the ‘Shaun’ shoot. It’s funny sometimes how the shoot starts to mirror the movie, as the stand off section and Barbara’s big death scene were easily the most intense and difficult stretches of the shoot. I remember not being in a great mood during this sequence and perhaps that is why dark clouds gather over the movie in this act. Maybe that even worked for the movie. Every good zombie film has to have a bummer section.
It was especially tough for the zombies stuck outside who had to bang and moan for 12 hours every day. That’s tough on the arms. It’s no fun being one of the living dead.
