Like the Romeo and Juliet referrence of the story... 2 from opposite sides of town fall in love. The story is an original and is funny and cute though with suspenseful parts too. Enjoyed this movie!

I am one to love horror, suspense and that type of genre...But this movie was cute with a a bit of suspense. I think we are used to the typical "zombies" - this movie gave us the story from THEIR view. I was pleasantly surprised! :)

I'm not a big fan of Zombie movies but fell in love with this one. Keeps you on the edge of your seat at all times. A friend and I are trying to decide whether or not to go see this again or Safe Haven! We've seen it before and we don't know what to do! The acting, directing, and writing were fantastic! It is definitively a go see! I don't think it is a family-friendly movie, but it is a great movie!

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!

The zombie romance formula is a new one, that's for sure. Outside the zombie part and the romance part, what's left is just plain weird. There are so many plot holes that play-wise, this is Swiss cheese, with emphasis on cheese. The film had a shot at being more, much more. Still, as bubblegum features go, this one went. If you're an older teen looking for something to do on date night, this movie slightly fits the bill. For all others, I'd recommend you reconsider. You'll be glad you did.
