Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza headlines the newest addition to the Zombie-Romance genre...

With the zombie craze showing no signs of slowing down audiences of course expect more of the same. What people perhaps didn’t expect was the rise of Zombie romances like Warm Bodies.

This is what we know about Life After Beth’s plot: A devastated boyfriend feels he gets a second chance at love when his girlfriend returns as a zombie. Of course hilarity and mayhem ensues. The post-production still seem to imply that Life After Beth will be significantly more gory than Warm Bodies as Aubrey’s make-up seems to be a bit heavy on the blood and decay. Hopefully the splatter won’t detract from the humor, but audiences as of late don’t seem to mind a little blood in their punchlines.

In addition to Plaza as Beth, Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) will play the boyfriend Zach. The cast is rounded out in the form of Anna Kendrick, Molly Shannon, John C. Reilly, Paul Reiser, and Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat. Add in the¬†script from Director Jeff Baena (I Heart Huckabees) and you jut might have the formula for a hit.

The film was co-produced by Francis Ford Coppola’s American Zoetrope and will be premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Life After Beth was originally a 7 minute short film form 2010, this seems to be where the idea came from…
