Romeo & Juliet by way of Night of the Living Dead? Yeah, Warm Bodies isn't going to be your run-of-the-mill romance. Even if everything about it screams "It's the zombie Twilight."
Based on author Isaac Marion's 2011 novel, the undead rom-com Warm Bodies tells the story of R, a walker who falls in love with the beautiful girlfriend (Teresa Palmer) of a guy whose brains he's just eaten—sure beats telling people you met her on Match.com, right? It's an awkward setup primed for necrophiliacs, true, but the film's trailer suggests a goofier, smarter comedy in the vein of Zombieland.
