Life After Beth is an odd movie. See it starts out with Beth already dead. So we see her funeral and the toll it takes on young Zach. Zach does mention to her father,Maury, they were having problems tho. However after they play some chess, smoke some weed and he goes home we discover Beth is back. Shortly after we find out Beth has changed. But has she really? We don’t really know because Zach seems to be the only one to notice at first.
This small annoyance aside the movie is quite humorous, it is also a pretty different take on the usual zombie genre. In fact nobody even believes or knows she is a zombie at first. She walks, talks, eats just like a normal person for the vast majority of the movie. She also happens to be the only one. It isn’t until much later, and until Zach breaks his promise to Maury and tells her she died in the first place that more show up. They also for some reason have an odd obsession with attics.
As Beth gets more and more violent and Zach gets more and more scared and more of these zombies show up, more people start to believe Zach that Beth is alive and not just Zach being nuts.Its a little hard to deny it when your grandparents show up for dinner really. Another odd but fun choice is for some reason, smooth jazz calms the zombies down. I have no clue why, or why it would but hey, lets just go with it guys.
At the end of the day this is an interesting horror comedy that doesn’t take itself seriously and is worth watching if you are a fan of that sort of thing. Personally I liked it and would recommend checking it out. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
