Some girls just want to watch the world burn.
Here a few years ago and the zombies are everywhere. From movies and sitcoms up books and comics. In cinema, in particular, the zombies have "invaded" in every genre. So we, zombie comedies, action films with zombies and even romantic zombie movies. The Life after Beth belongs to the so-called zom rom com (romantic zombie comedy), species that perfected the Shaun of the dead and had possible additions in recent years with films like the Warm Bodies.
The film puts the scales with light comedy romance drama with zombies is simply a plot device giving one more gory aesthetics. This balance clearly leans to the side of comedy and it seems from the dialogues characterised by hearing-impaired surreal humor and constructed so that they point in line. These dialogues are not as strong as the quality of the humor, but the movie is aided greatly by the actors who have given their credentials in comedy (Aubrey Plaza known from the series of Parks and Recreation and the stand up comedy show in the role of Beth and of course the John C. Riley in the role of Beth's dad). Special mention deserves to be made into Dane DeHaan plays him Zach, who responds to the comic duties giving much-needed drama for which he is famous.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival where he took part in the contest.
The film has its moments, it manages to be scary at any point but rather it was planned because the zombie apocalypse isn't the focus of the film. The make up and special effects are pretty plausible even though the small budget of the film.
