Joe Dante‘s Burying the Ex (2014) is a new horror comedy that I am looking forward to watching. I am a big fan of Joe Dante and Anton Yelchin has grown on me. This film will feature zombies and so far reads a lot like Life After Beth, I hope this is better. Starring in Burying the Ex are Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario.
...Max (Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Greene). Their relationship takes a nosedive after they decide to move in together and Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare. Max knows it’s time to call it quits, but there’s just one problem: he’s terrified of breaking up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Max eventually meets Olivia (Daddario), a cute and spirited girl who just might be his soul mate, only to learn that Evelyn has risen from her grave and is determined to get her boyfriend back…even if that means turning him into one of the undead.
