Last August 19, I got the chance to watch the advanced screening of “Life After Beth” at Greenbelt 3. Thanks to my awesome friend, Aicha!
Life After Beth is one of the movies worth paying to see in theaters this year. It’s a creative charmer that shows the typical movie scenarios of young love amidst chaos and disaster, but with a new twist. It is a story set in the life of Zach (Dane DeHaan) and his girlfriend Beth (Aubrey Plaza). The film gets going when Beth mysteriously dies and rises from the dead and eventually discovers that she has a newfound appetite for human.
It’s a zombie movie so expect blood and flesh-eating scenes (very minimal, so don’t worry!). But, unlike most movies in cult film genre, Life After Beth has injected every scene with humor courtesy of the stellar cast of comic veterans, such as John Reilly, Paul Reiser, Molly Shannon and Cheryl Hinds, together with the newest Hollywood hottie, Dane DeHaan and young break through stars, Audrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick.
Playing up just the right mix of romance, drama, spooky and comedy, this movie will leave every film goer in a constant laughter. There are so many clever lines and bits of physical comedy. And I swear to God, it’s so hilarious! You’ll literally laugh out loud. Cheers to “Life After Beth” for taking us in a different direction for a change, proving that yes, there is indeed love after the zombie apocalypse.
It will be on screens tomorrow, September 3! Don’t dare miss it!!!
