With the last Twilight movie due out this Friday (November 16), there will be a definite hole left in the supernatural-themed romance-fantasy department. If movies like the zombie-themed Warm Bodies are anything to go by, it won't be a hole for very long.
Based on the YA novel by Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies tells the story of a young man, known only as R, who happens to be a zombie. While eating someone’s brains, he begins to experience his victim’s emotions and memories. Things only get more complicated when he comes across his victim’s girlfriend and decides to rescue her instead of making her part of a two-course meal. The pair’s growing mismatched relationship and R’s increasing self-awareness combine to create a situation that has the potential to change the fate of a world filled with masses of the shambling undead.
If that tickles your zombie-filled fancy, keep in mind that Warm Bodies is due out at the beginning of next February, just in time for a quirky Valentine’s Day date.
Watch the trailer for Warm Bodies.
