Warm Bodies (2013)
The tagline says it all “He’s still dead, but he’s getting warmer”. This is the first romantic comedy about the ultimate in mixed relationships: Zombie boy / Living girl. To say her dad is zombie intolerant is an understatement. He is, in classic drama movie setup, the head of the post apocalypse government and in charge of killing all zombies. I know what you’re thinking, “Is there any metaphorical meaning and substance beneath this light fluffy rom/com?” There is indeed. There are male/female analogies and a not so preachy social commentary. What about gore? Not so much. So, if you are a die-hard zombie and dystopian movie lover, this might not strike all the necessary chords. But for the rest: be prepared to be pleasantly surprised. [rating=4]
