Life After Beth (Aubrey Plaza Zom-edy)

Before we get to the subject at hand let me get this out. I have an odd taste in women, and I would gladly push over Jennifer Aniston or Jessica Alba to get to Aubrey Plaza or a Krysten Ritter.

ANYWAY, Plaza is a very funny women and this looks like it might be a solid horror-comedy. Here are the details:

Synopsis
Quote:
The assured directorial debut of I HEART HUCKABEES co-screenwriter Jeff Baena is a brilliantly cast, howlingly funny heartbreaker of love and undeath that poignantly utilizes the zombie mythos to explore the difficulties of letting go when relationships change. Zach is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth. But when she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before. However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zach’s whole world takes a turn for the worse. A standout selection at this year’s Sundance and New Zealand International Film Festival, starring Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Cheryl Hines, Paul Reiser and Matthew Gray Gubler. Canadian Premiere.

Official Trailer

I'm tired of zombies, but I love Aubrey Plaza. Hell, I watched The To-Do List, just cause she was in it, so I guess I'm in for this as well. She was actually funnier promoting that movie on Conan than the movie itself.

I decided to check this out because I remember there being some buzz around it... and it totally bored the shit out of me. Just awful.

I think it's supposed to be a horror comedy, but it's not horror and it's definitely not funny. Good cure for insomnia.

I thought this was descent, but I still feel disappointed. Personally I like deadpan humor, so something like this is right up my alley, but I can totally understand why some would think otherwise. My main beef with this has to be the plot swerve that happens around the hour mark
Spoiler:
When they pretty much abandon the love triangle aspect and we find out that others are rising from the dead.
Although this was an interesting idea to expand the film's universe, it comes way too late into the film and takes away from the story that had already been built up.

And if you watched any of those infamous celebrity leaked videos last month, you'd know that Aubrey's a fan of self-love too...
