Zac’s girlfriend, Beth, dies from snake bite when she’s out hiking. He grieves for her deeply, until one day – Beth’s back! He can love her again. That is, until he discovers she’s become a zombie!

This is a terrific film. I don’t think it’s quite as good as Zombieland or Warm Bodies, but it does come pretty close. And like its zom com predecessors, the theme is about love and relationships rather than horror or ‘end of the world’ anxieties. It has a beautiful, delicate humour.

This film is funny, well-scripted, and the casting and acting is excellent. Aubrey Plaza is sensational as Beth and I believe that this must be her best role yet. This is definitely a film that is worth a watch.
