Freaky Friday: Warm Bodies

Double Dose! Please join me in giving a big THANK YOU to our special guest blogger, paranormal author, Danielle DeVor for appearing on the blog two weeks in a row with her killer reviews! This week, she's talking about the new flick out in theaters, Warm Bodies. If you're not familiar with the book or film, check out the trailer...

What's not to love about that sneak peek? Read below for the full scoop from Danielle and what to expect from this campy zombie film...
"Being a horror fanatic, I have my own smattering of favorite zombie movies. At the top of the list is probably Dawn of the Dead (1978). I just love Ken Foree as the anti-hero. That brings me to the newest zombie-anti-hero film to shuffle it's way into theaters. I, of course, am talking about the film adaptation of Isaac Marion's Warm Bodies.
If you are expecting a serious film, you obviously haven't seen the trailers. This is not your usual zombie film: i.e. zombie eat brains, zombie shuffle, girl scream, zombie die with gun shot to the head. Actually, that's not true. This movie has all of those things, plus an unusual way of making necrophilia palatable. Of course it helps that Nicholas Hoult is droolworthy, but droolage doesn't matter much in zombie films.[Spoiler Alert: Highlight with mouse to see] watching ol Nick much on brain colored gelatin with dead black teeth and gums is seriously gnarly.
This movie is cheesy, funny, [Spoiler Alert: Highlight with mouse to see] Bitches, man. Bitches., but it has heart- literally. [Spoiler Alert: Highlight with mouse to see] The fact that zombies can be cured by love makes as much sense as acting like everything's okay and the zombies won't eat you. Check out The Video Dead if you think I'm kidding. I still want to know the story of The Garbage Man, but that's a whole other review.
 
Rating: I give this one an A. But then, I love the cheese. And, M is hilarious. Trust me."

  3. I loved Warm Bodies! I thought it was great fun. I'm not much of a horror fan. I think the only other zombie movie I've ever seen was Shawn of the Dead ... so you can see my taste is humor with a dash of silly. Just loved it all around!
