Comedy/Horror/Romantic Comedy: In a post apocalyptic world, a young woman finds herself strangely drawn to a young zombie who isn't quite like the others.
It's been eight years since a plague killed much of the world's population and turned those victims into zombies. Now, the remaining humans, led by Grigio (JOHN MALKOVICH) and protected by his heavily armed militia, live behind a huge walled city, while the zombies aimlessly and slowly wander about, looking for their latest meal of human flesh and brains. Among them is R (NICHOLAS HOULT) who, like his "friend" M (ROB CORDDRY), lives at a long-deserted airport. While their "conversations" consist of grunting and staring, R has rational thoughts inside his head, and always finds himself conflicted when feeding on a human.

His latest victim is Perry (DAVE FRANCO), a young man sent out with his girlfriend Julie (TERESA PALMER), her friend Nora (ANALEIGH TIPTON), and others on a medical supply run. It turns out a side effect of eating brains is experiencing the memories of the victim, and those in Perry about Julie cause R to save her from being killed by other zombies. He ends up taking her back to an airliner he lives in and which is decorated with various items he's collected over the years. Julie is initially terrified, but eventually realizes he means her no harm and isn't your ordinary zombie.

Spending time with her results in him partially reverting back to human form. That change not only puts both of them at risk from the regular zombies and a more ferocious and quicker moving breed of them known as Boneys, but also Grigio and his men, especially because that man is also Julie's father.

As it's aimed at teens who like star-crossed lover type movies (think "Twilight"), it's a good bet a fair amount will be interested.
For zombie violence and some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
