The movie premise was different and funny to begin with which made me want to go see it. It was funny, not quite as funny as I thought it would be but, I definitely enjoyed it. The inner monologue from Nicholas Hoult is the best part and of course the one liners by Rob Corddry who is always hilarious. Definitely worth seeing!

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.

The Zombie's side of the story of course. The character development was done quite nicely. There was not a single point where you are bored. It's really a classic teenage love story wrapped around the zombie theme. You empathize with the main character and share funny, serious, and gentle moments with him. You are on his side from minute 1 and for a change we get to see the other side of zombies...the side that doesn't always want to eat your brains.
If you are a fan of the zombie genre. it's a must go.

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.
