Love is DeadBy manonfireuk (407 reviews) from Liverpool , 24 Feb 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]Having read the book I was really looking forward to seeing this. The book was a funny and sweet take on the zombie genre that transfers pretty well into this movie. I was worried they were going to make it all Twilight and from the trailers that are shown before the movie, that is certainly the audience they are aiming for. However, I think they've avoided that trap and made a pretty decent horror rom com. That are a few things that were left out from the book that I think could have provided more laughs but you can never fit everything from the book onto film I guess.

Very good way to inprove the undeads imageBy Wallingcrazy (15 reviews) , 28 Jun 2013I really loved the steady pace and great story voiced internally by the lead zombie, and having watched wwz a few days back it was a great mood lifter. Really good story and characters but I thought john malcovich was a little out of place. Would like to find more like this.
Not fully living, but not completely dead neither.By snash123 (71 reviews) , 28 Jun 2013The film is throughout quite low on any sort of action or humour, unlike Shaun of the Dead, but instead is quite a slow paced love story of a zombie that can think and a girl who's job was to kill them. In all a very good film, this wasn't bad at all. Not a film I would rush over to Amazon to buy, but certainly one I would consider buying as a bargain bucket title.
I Was A Teenage ZombieBy Lugodoc (117 reviews) from Portsmouth, UK , 27 Jun 2013Plays well on the old joke, started with Romero's 1978 Dawn Of The Dead and more recently seen in Shaun Of The Dead, that a Zombie Apocalypse might not mean all that big a change. Nicholas Hoult plays teenage Zombie 'R' with amazing charm (for a zombie), groaning, shuffling and incoherently mumbling his growing love for still-living Julie almost as awkwardly as a normal living teenage boy. Unfortunately her Dad (Malkovich!!!) is Zombie-Killer General, so it all goes a bit Romeo And Juliet. There's even a balcony scene. Funny and sweet. Safe to watch with your other half.

Light Hearted Zombie FunBy stargaz3r (7 reviews) , 27 Jun 2013Good easy fun going zombie love flik. The pace is a little to slow to get excited by this film but the main actor plays the role very well. Expect to see more of him. Good film for a quiet night in. Enjoyed it.
Been dying to see thisBy mattyp91 (236 reviews) from Thatcham , 27 Jun 2013Sorry about the bad pun - but the trailer for this looked great and I love zombie films so this looked interesting and a little different, and I have to say it turned out pretty good. Nicholas Hoult is great as R - the zombie narrator that inexplicably starts to change after falling in love with a human girl. Its quite touching in parts, good bits of action in others and amusing throughout. Well worth a watch on a saturday night.
