Storyline

With much of the world's population now an undead horde, R is a young and oddly introspective zombie. While fighting with and feeding on a human scavenger party, R meets Julie and feels an urge to protect her. What happens next is the beginning of a strangely warm relationship that allows R to begin regaining his humanity. As this change spreads through the local undead population like a virus, Julie and R eventually have to face a larger issue when the very nature of their friendship is challenged. Caught between the paranoid human forces and the ferocious "Bonies", zombies who are a mutual threat, R and Julie must find a way to bridge the differences of each side to fight for a better world no one thought possible.

Trivia

Goofs

When we hear "Shelter from the Storm" by Bob Dylan, we see an LP being played. If we assume this LP is Blood on the Tracks, the needle placement is incorrect. Shelter from the Storm is the penultimate track on Side 2, meaning the needle would be more than halfway toward the center label. What we in fact see is the needle not yet halfway through the side. This would indicate we should be hearing "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
R: [voice-over] What am I doing with my life? I'm so pale. I should get out more. I should eat better. My posture is terrible. I should stand up straighter. People would respect me more if I stood up straighter. What's wrong with me? I just want to connect. Why can't I connect with people? Oh, right, it's because I'm dead. I shouldn't be so hard on myself. I mean, we're all dead. This girl is dead. That guy is dead. That guy in the corner is definitely dead. Jesus these guys look awful.

Surprisingly lovely
30 July 2013 | by tr91See all my reviews

This film isn't your usual Zombie film, yes there is a load of zombies in it but it is with a twist. This time it is about good zombies. There is still quite a few fight scenes but nothing over the top/too gory.

I didn't think this plot could work, a zombie and a human forming a relationship? it sounds silly but it actually works! The excellent Nicholas Hoult portrays 'R' the zombie extremely well and the on screen friendship he forms with Julie (Teresa Palmer) is really touching. OK it is a bit predictable but the way it all developed is great and we are left with a great ending.

I think this film will really surprise a few people, it is definitely worth watching. A romantic film which includes zombies and is also funny, a winner for me.

8/10
