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 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 must say this film really surprised me. It's an impossible love story as well as an intriguing action movie that kept me on the edge of me seat. The main character R chooses to save the life of a young girl instead of, well, eating her. He then takes her back to his home and keeps her safe, only to be heartbroken when she leaves. I would recommend this film for anybody at least 12 years old, and even then with parental guidance.

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.
