I heard a lot of people saying that it was just another Twilight... Not in the least! Waaaay better, and waaaay funnier! Having R narrate the movie was just great and I think that's what made it.
The only thing I wish was that they changed up the trailer more. I sort of felt I knew what was going on from the trailer, but with an hour and half movie you didn't have a lot of choices!
Go see this movie! It's great! You'll laugh the whole time!

I took my (reluctant) 73 year old mother with me to see this film and get her out of the house. She was laughing along with everyone else, and of course it was a light attendance-since it was the matinee at our local mall. I knew Nicholas Hoult from About a Boy, of course, but have also seen him in A Single Man and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. The action movies he is credited with, I have not seen.
I have been impressed with him, and let me say-this young British actor is an up and comer. Already, everything he touches turns to gold. He was delightful, sympathetic and funny in this touching zombie movie that is anything but traditional. There is a genuine story line, superb acting by all, but again he is one to watch.
I recommend it most highly and if I can convince my middle aged boyfriend to see it I will be happy to go again!

I must admit that the biggest reason I wanted to see this movie was because Theresa Palmer was in it. I think she is not only beautiful, but a great actress, I wish she was in more movies. I actually really liked the movie, a lot. I found it to be clever in a way. I never really was bored. Lots of touching moments and as always, Theresa Palmer was awsome. I am not a teen and have not been for decades and there were a lot of people my age who actually clapped when it was over. Of course you are going to have to put up with teens making noise all the way through. I heard some people were comparing it to the "Twilight" movies, not even close, this movie is MUCH better in every way. I only was stupid enough to see one of those movies, thank goodness. Worth going to see.

It was what you would have to call a cute movie. This is defiantly a good movie to take a girl on a date to without feeling like you lost every little ounce of respect for yourself while watching it. I would recommend if you are going to go on a date to go pay the money to see it but for any other reason wait for cheap tickets or till it comes out to rent or online stream buy.

Let's just say it was what I was expecting. It's a light hearted, zombie meets girl, rom-com.
They story is pretty week but who cares. The film is aimed at teenage girls and occasionally their boyfriends. I'm defiantly not in the key demographic but I still thought it was cute. Could have moved along a little quicker but then it would be an hour and 15 minutes.
