Life After Beth
Aubrey Plaza stars as Dane Dehaan's undead girlfriend in zombie comedy Life After Death which was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

What would you do with a broken heart and a rotting girlfriend?
"Zach (DeHaan from The Amazing Spiderman 2) is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth (Aubrey Plaza). But when she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before.

However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zach’s whole world takes a turn for the worse."



Life After Beth writer-director Jeff Baena told the Hollywood Reporter his new flick is just a relationship film in which the female half of the central couple is an undead flesh-eater.

“The film sort of deals with issues and traumas and situations that you would deal with in a zombie movie, but more on a personal level. I wanted to focus more on the emotional carnage instead of the physical carnage.”

Also starring John C. Reilly and Anna Kendrick, Sundance favourite Life After Beth reaches UK cinemas October 3rd. Check out a new clip below.
