From Shaun of the Dead to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Ant-Man, Edgar Wright is known for delivering high-octane action with a deliciously geeky twist. His newest film, the musically-charged and car-chase-tastic Baby Driver is now in theaters, so we thought we’d take a look at the movies that Wright considers his own cinematic touchstone. Predictably, his list of faves combines horror, hijinks, monsters, and monster laughs. Which film changed his life forever? We’ll give you a hint: It’s a sequel that’s also a satire of itself! With Wright’s love of sending-up the very genres he celebrates, it all makes a beautiful kind of sense, really.
