Warm Bodies

The past few years we’ve seen a surging movement in films
and T.V. to capture modernized tales of the supernatural and undead, and we, the
fans, can’t seem to get enough. Warm Bodies shows that the zombie sub-genre has
not run out of steam yet and offers up a healthy dose of something fresh.
The premise is similar to Shaun of the Dead in that there is
a bit of romance, a dash of comedy, and a light sprinkling of horror mixed with

Before the movie even premiered, I was personally excited just based on the casting.  I felt that Adelaine Clemens was a good choice for Heather, and it was proven by the end of the movie...
