Life After Beth: First Look - Zombie of the Week

Posted by The Daily Zombies Friday, June 27, 2014

See exactly how Love will keep you alive in our First Look at Life After Beth, the Sundance darling of 2014. 

While one can hardly categorize Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2's critical response as overwhelming negative, you got to admit that despite the film's emotional climax near its conclusion, we can't really see how anybody is getting drummed up by either the spin-off films or the third outing set to be released in 2016. With that said, we here at The Daily Zombies absolutely agree with what most critics have noted: The film has a blasting cast. Apart from real-life couple Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone's sizzling on-screen chemistry, Dane DeHaan chewed the screens and totally owned the character of Harry Osborn like James Franco never did in three outings.

So it came to nobody's surprise that we are very much excited with Life After Beth, an upcoming zombie comedy that made its premiere at this year's Sundance to a positive response. A living (no pun intended) proof that the unlikely sub-genre of zom-rom-com (zombie romantic comedy) is alive and kicking, the film directed by Jeff Baena features DeHaan as a lovelorn teenager who lost his girlfriend, the eponymous Beth portrayed by an inspired Aubrey Plaza, who later returned looking all normal but certainly not. Of course, she's hungry for brains and human flesh though appearing to be relatively sane despite her ravenous urges. 

Throw in the ever-efficient John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon as Mr. and Mrs. Slocum, Life After Beth is certainly one hell of reminder that the zom-rom-com sub-genre is here to stay. Set for a limited released in mid-August stateside, the first trailer of the film has been released and embedded right below for your undead pleasure.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

Zach is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth. When she mysteriously returns, he gets a second chance at love. Soon his whole world turns upside down… Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Cheryl Hines, Paul Reiser.

Life After Beth is currently scheduled for a limited released on August 15th, 2014.
