I watched this film with no real idea what it was about and what to expect, I had read about it but forgot before I watched it. So when it started I thought it was going to be a coming of age drama about and young guy trying to get over his girlfriend dying and his relationship with her parents. I was so wrong.....
Zack Orfman (Dane Dehaan) is trying to deal with his Girlfriend Beth's (Aubrey Plaza) death but after her parents stop returning his calls he goes round only to find Beth alive and well. But things aren't quite what they seem, Beth has been brought back to life and may not be the same as she was before she died.
The is without fail now my favourite zombie movie, I loved it. The humour was great and Dane Dehaan did a great job at being the brooding teenager distraught over his dead girlfriend right through to being terrified she was going to eat him! My only wish was that they used more Anna Kendrick, I love her awkward relationship with Zack and I felt like it could have been utilised a bit more.
Dehaan and Plaza had great chemistry, so much so that you almost wanted them together even though she might have eaten his brains. It's very much dark humour throughout which is perfectly timed to make this just one step better than Warm Bodies. It has the blood, gore and general grossness but the focus is on the relationships between the living and the dead people that keep popping up alive again and inevitably trying to eat them.
Ridiculously awesome, could happily watch it again and again. Love the plot, love the cast and really really love the dark humour.
