Broad, unfunny film with a few horror film fan touches
7 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

There's like a split second where this film might be an interesting look at the dynamics of what makes relationships work or don't (I thought the film was going to present Ashley Greene's Evelyn as sympathetic), but this is not that at all. It's just a lowest common denominator type-A domineering girlfriend trying to make a man-child grow up instead of just letting him be him. Except this time the twist is that she comes back as a zombie and he still doesn't have the fortitude to tell her the truth (he would rather kill her, again).

Broad, with a few horror film fan touches, and nothing remotely approaching the level of a Joe Dante film and what that normally entails.
