Life After Beth (2014)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
10.18.14

Life After Beth (2014) Zach (Dan DeHaan of THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN 2) is heartbroken after his girlfriend, Beth (Aubrey Plaza of SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED) dies from a snake bite. After the funeral he bonds with Beth's father, Maury (John C. Reilly) and his wife. But then they start to avoid him by not returning phone calls or answering their door. Zach goes over to their house, peers in the windows and sees his deceased girlfriend inside. She's alive? At first he's very upset because he thinks it's a hoax. Before she had died she had told him she wanted to break up with him and thinks it has to do with that. But he discovers, after finding the hole at her tombstone, that she has returned from the dead. And she's not quite the same. She has missing gaps of memory, thinks she has a test the next day, and now lives in the attic, where she plasters mud on the walls. He takes her out during the day, against her parents' wishes, and her face gets charred from the sun. Upon returning, they tell him they don't want him to see her anymore. So he sneaks into her attic at night and they go to the beach where he plays a song to her on his guitar. This makes her angrily freak out. But once in the car she turns on the radio and mellows out to the tunes on a Smooth Jazz channel. He's horrified, not that she's becoming a zombie, but that she now likes Smooth Jazz. Then, things rapidly degenerate for everyone involved--and more dead start emerging from their graves...

From the DVD cover it seems they are marketing this as a comedy but it's not a comedy. I was expecting a comedy--so this was somewhat of a let-down. It is surreal and more of a psychological study of a zombie--basically, how she's emotionally a zombie. LIFE AFTER BETH may be the most pretentious zombie movie I've ever seen.
