Warm Bodies (2013)

Well done to those of you that got today’s tagline right (just the two of you). It was indeed from Shaun of the Dead (2004).

In the Facebook comments I saw a few of you talking about a film I’ve been meaning to do a post about for a while so I thought, “why not do it today?”

Warm Bodies (2013)

Warm Bodies is one of my favourite zombie movies and also one of my favourite romance movies.

“ROMANCE?!” I hear you say?

Yes! Romance, because this is a zombie film like you’ve never seen.

It stars Nicholas Hoult (Tolkien), Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine) and John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich) among others.

The story is based on Isaac Marion's 2010 novel of the same name which itself is inspired by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Here’s what it’s about with a little help from IMDb:

In a post apocalyptic world where Zombies walk the earth and the last of mankind live behind a huge wall, a chance encounter between a human girl (Palmer) and an unusual zombie (Hoult) results in an unlikely friendship that sets in motion events that could transform the entire lifeless world.

I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking that sounds ridiculous. I know how it sounds but it’s really not, it’s brilliant!

It’s different, funny and really heart warming.

On top of that Rob Corddry is in it (he’s great in everything) and the soundtrack is excellent! What more could you want?

Try and get past what your brain is telling you and give it a chance. It’s absolutely worth a watch.

Here’s the trailer in case you’re still not sure.
