Zach is a total mess following the sudden death of his girlfriend Beth and turns to her equally grief-stricken parents for support. However, when they stop contacting him, he becomes confused by their evasiveness and begins to suspect their daughter is still alive. Sure enough, there's a hole in the ground by her presumably previously occupied grave and she appears to have resurrected from the dead. Zach doesn't know what to think, but when he sees her looking just the same as she did before she died, he is overcome with emotion and decides to tell her everything that he wished he'd said before she passed. However, their happy ending is quickly cut short when Beth starts displaying increasingly erratic behaviour - such as biting and eating a man. Realising that she's a zombie complicates things for Zach, who'll give anything to keep her around but struggles to cope with her newfound brutality.
'Life After Beth' is an unusual twist on the zombie genre, played out like a romantic comedy horror. It has been directed and written by Jeff Baena ('I Heart Huckabees'), and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival as well as an Audience Award at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. The movie will hit the UK on October 3rd 2014.
