Horror, Romantic comedy
To call this a straight-up zombie flick would be off the mark. It’s a love story set in a horror movie world that actually works wonderfully as a love story. It’s everything the Twilight saga wanted to be but failed at miserably. It’s a movie that knows it’s ridiculous, embraces its ridiculousness, and emerges as something that feels astonishingly real and true to life. Nicholas Hoult plays R, a confused zombie who sees Julie (Teresa Palmer) after eating some human brains. He falls instantly in love and he starts to awaken, as any young man would when he sees Teresa Palmer. Hoult and Palmer have adorable screen chemistry, and Rob Corddry is his usual awesome self as another zombie who wants more out of life than hanging out at the airport and eating people. George Romero fans going to Warm Bodies looking for zombie thrills might find themselves slightly disappointed. The movie is PG-13, so brains get eaten in an almost gentle fashion, and the zombie makeup is far from gory. However, people yearning for a unique romantic comedy will find plenty to like.

Indy Week Warm Bodies is a charming young zombie romance As a movie premise, Warm Bodies absolutely should not work: a zombie apocalypse crossed with a romantic comedy. But surprisingly, not only does it work, it occasionally soars. by Glenn McDonald 01/30/2013
