I was surprised that it was so cute. My daughter, best friend, and I went together. It was too short. Very sweet movie. I enjoyed the take on zombies.

Even with flesh eating zombies this movie was funny. There were chase scenes, by foot mind you. Kind of like the Twilight series with more of a comedic factor to it. I would totally recommend it.

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!

Unique combination of creepiness with humor. Interesting character development with humorous observations by main character and introspection by female lead. Offers zombie perspective intermingled with post apocalyptic imagery. My almost 13 year old enjoyed it thoroughly as well.

Went to the premiere last night, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was still a zombie film with some definite gory action going on, but it was witty, funny, and unique. I would highly recommend.
