There are relationships that hit stumbling blocks, and then there are relationships where the girlfriend dies and comes back as a zombie. Obviously, this is a problem Zach (DeHaan) didn't foresee, but when his girlfriend, Beth (Plaza), turns out to be not as dead as she previously was, he's determined to make the most of it. After they had some relationship problems before her death, he vows to do all the things she'd always wanted to do that he'd refused to do with her.
But dying and coming back can take its toll on a person (shocker), and Beth becomes increasingly violent, particularly after seeing Zach with a childhood friend, Erica (Kendrick). Beth isn't the only one with some emotional stability problems - other townspeople and Zach's formerly dead grandfather are in the same boat.
It isn't long before Beth eats a neighbor, and Zach wonders if dumping her might be the right thing to do. How do you dump a zombie girlfriend and survive, though?
These aren't the questions that all the youth have to contemplate, but Baena has found the funny side of the American zombie romantic comedy, which makes the search for answers enjoyable. If you find the quest for answers salivating, let us know so we can keep our distance.
