Storyline

A hike alone in the woods ends tragically for Beth Slocum with a fatal snake bite. Her death leaves her parents and boyfriend Zach reeling. After the funeral, Zach tries to make friends with Mr. and Mrs. Slocum, but even they reject him, and he's determined to figure out why. Then he sees Beth. Her parents are trying to keep her resurrection a secret, but zombie Beth provides Zach with the opportunity to do everything with her that he didn't get to do while she was still alive. But with Beth's increasingly erratic behavior and even more strange occurrences around town, life with the undead Beth proves to be particularly complicated for her still-living loved ones. Written by Anne Campbell

Funny and scary ... or is it?
26 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Comedy is a tough cookie and sometimes does not sell as good. And while this movie did not exactly meet my expectations (after all the good things that were written 6 months ago, it seemed to be a real hit), it isn't as bad as it is rated here on IMDb. Maybe people were really disappointed and voted that way, but maybe they just didn't like the way/humor this has.

Whatever the case, it is uncomfortable and it is funny at times. It could have done with some tweaks and be better at times (either more funny or more inject more horror to it), but it still works most of the time. It's really an achievement by the actors that this is as good as it got, even though we were all hoping for a bit more. Decent effort
