    Life After Beth (2014)

    Directed by Jeff Baena

    Starring Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, Anna Kendrick, John C. Reilly, Cheryl Hines, Molly Shannon, Paul Reiser

    6/10

    I guess with the screenwriting credit of I heart Huckabees behind him, this first time director managed to pull a comprehensive cast of name actors to fill out this low budget indie comedy horror.
    The script for this however is a bit of a mess and the direction is pretty sub-par. The actors do a fine job with what they are given and there are certainly some good scenes from time to time but on the whole it does not wow or feel like it adds much to this over-crowded genre. In the end we get an enjoyable enough film but one I doubt I will revisit.
