BURYING THE EX
2014, RLJE/Image Entertainment, 89 min, USA, Dir: Joe Dante

Max (Anton Yelchin) knows things aren’t working out with Evelyn (Ashley Greene), but he dreads breaking up with such a Type-A personality. That problem is apparently solved when Evelyn is hit by a bus, though after Max finds a more compatible girlfriend (Alexandra Daddario), his ex returns as a zombie, determined to hold him to his pledges of eternal love. “An efficient zom-com … the film switches gears between genres with Dante's customary ease.” - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter.
