Love is in the air, zombiephiles! "Warm Bodies" (the film adaptation of Isaac Marion's brilliant zombie novel) is opening in theaters tomorrow, just in time for Valentine's Day season. Come see what might actually be the world's first zom-rom-com to grace the silver screen!
"Warm Bodies" is the story of a world overrun by the undead, where humans live in militarized, post-apocalyptic communities and zombies slowly decompose until they aren't even a shadow of the people they used to be. Our hero is R, a zombie who is slowly but surely losing the last of his humanity and keeping a running commentary on his posthumous observations.
Everything changes for R when he eats the brain of a boy in love and sets his deathly sites on Julie, who is very much alive. In "Warm Bodies" Julie and R join together (and totally fall in love) to change the lives (and unlives) of everyone around them.
A post-apocalyptic and cleverly funny "Romeo and Juliet" complete with balcony scene, "Warm Bodies" is the perfect Valentine's Day date for a couple of zombiephiles in love. Or, y'know, the perfect way to find out if your Valentine has the same distinguished and discerning taste as you do.
