DON’T BE CREEPY

R: God, we move slow. This could take a while.

OMG!!! This is one of my most anticipated movies of the year!!!

Based on the book by Isaac Marion, R is a zombie unlike the others. Sure, he has an appetite for human brains but he also has an eclectic taste in music and a longing for a more cultured afterlife. He meets Julie on a raid and keeps her safe in his lair. What happens is an unconventional love story between a zombie and a human being.

Well, this is another movie that’s being marketed as the next Twilight but please, it is so different! There’s little variation from the book except the part of the zombie wife but that wasn’t really relevant anyway. Some parts were funny, like R’s inner monologue and how his awkwardness with girls makes him want to die all over again. R’s relationship with Julie sparks a revolution among the zombies and they are on the run from humans who wants to kill zombies and the Boneys (zombies who have lost all trace of humanity) because they sparked a revolution among the other zombies.

M: They say… “Fuck, yeah!”

While R has the most lines among the zombies, his friend, M (Rob Corddry) does steal the scenes when he speaks. It is quite strange to see solidarity among zombies but it goes to show not all qualities die along with civilization. The final scene is slightly different from the book but fan wouldn’t be disappointed. I won’t spoil too much of the story but it is a really nice story and everyone should go watch it. The zombies aren’t as scary as those on The Walking Dead (which I am currently crazy about) and there isn’t as much gore so people who are afraid of blasting brains should watch in ease.
