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 saw this movie today on Valentine's Day and it was packed! It was a fun movie and had a nice twist to the regular zombie flicks. This is the story of a zombie falling in love with a human being, and how one person can change someone so drastically different. It shows all of us that emotion and feelings can take over someone. Go see it with someone you care about, because it had a nice plot. Good flick!!

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.

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.
