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.

Quotes

[first lines]
Supermarket Stocker: Can I help you find something, sir?
Zach Orfman: Yeah, do you have any black napkins. I've been looking all over.
Supermarket Stocker: Black napkins... I don't think so. If you don't like white, this is a beige one
Zach Orfman: They have to be black.
Supermarket Stocker: That's more of a Halloween item. You might want to try a party store.
Zach Orfman: [gives a slow, incredulous look]

Rather dead, than alive
13 October 2014 | by missbudapestSee all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Aubrey Plaza. For first it seemed like, she was the best choose for this ironic and ambivalent dead and alive character. But her act was rather dead, than alive. I think this is her poorest performance on screen as well as Dane Deehan's, who always plays the same 'i'm so deep and baggy eyes' one. This movie in my opinion wanted to be a satire, but it failed massively. Through the entire almost one and half hour I was thinking about 'The signal' which is although made by 3 directors, but it has the perfect balance between dark humour and horror elements. It had so many opportunities and should have had much more funnier conversations. I remembered some lines from 'In the flesh', which had those lines that made the series made fun the seriousness of the situation and suited perfectly the atmosphere. I'm sad, because I sat down, to watch the movie with great expectations and didn't even wanted to watch the trailer before. Too bad I didn't.
