About the Movie

Zach (Dane DeHaan) is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth (Aubrey Plaza). But when she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before. However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zach’s whole world takes a turn for the worse.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Seasoned actors are left to yell pointlessly at one another, while Beth and the zombie angle slowly decompose. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Aug 14, 2014

Fresh: Plaza, whose wide-eyed stare suggests a zombie as painted by Margaret Keane, plausibly navigates Beth's journey into full-throttle Linda Blair demonic dementia. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Aug 21, 2014

Rotten: Baena co-wrote "I Heart Huckabees" and while he has a sense of humor, the jokes here tend to be meager and tend to dribble on. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Sep 4, 2014

Fresh: A nicely strange, and often strangely fun movie - and, unlike most of the summer's comedies, a film with some brains. Even if it only wants to eat them. – Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, Aug 15, 2014

Great movie!

Saw this in NY and really enjoyed it! Great analogy between getting back with something. If only they would release the soundtrack/score! It was really good!


I watched this movie in LA opening weekend, and it was amazing!! just want it to be september 23rd already so I can watch it 10 times a day for the rest of eternity.

Eh….I expected more from such a talented cast

I knew that the is movie was not going to break new ground, but i did not expect it to be so utterly banal. It was like they did not know what genre to settle on, and the genre’s that were presented were poorly done. It wasn’t very funny, it wasn’t dramatic enough, it definitely wasn’t scary, and it just made me frustrated. I just expected much more.
