R (Hoult) is a zombie, but he’s somewhat conflicted about it. When he eats the brain of her boyfriend, Perry (Franco), he falls in love with Julie (Palmer) and begins to strain against the limits of an undead life. But for these star-cross’d lovers, there are obvious obstacles to a happy ending.
Somewhere between the pop-culture deconstruction of Zombieland and the skewed romance of (500) Days Of Summer, this manages to make the apocalypse seem charming. Warm is the right word.
