Aubrey Plaza and John C. Reilly Will Deal With Zombies and Love in ‘LIFE AFTER BETH’


Next year is going to be a feeding ground for hungry zombie fans.  Outside of the continuing zombie series The Walking Dead on AMC, fans will be treated to the zombie comedy Warm Bodies – which just began early screenings for audiences – and the Brad Pitt adaptation of the Max Brooks novel World War Z.  Aubrey Plaza is known for her comedic skills with the TV show Parks and Recreation and this year’s surprisingly funny indie comedy Safety Not Guaranteed.  With her next feature the young actress may be required to do a little more than deliver humorous lines in her typical dry, straight-faced fashion.  She talks about the film in a new interview with the Guardian.  And it sounds like something horror fans may want to take notice of.

She’s also preparing to star with John C Reilly in Life After Beth, a zombie comedy written and to be directed by her live-in boyfriend, Jeff Baena (co-writer of I Heart Huckabees). She sums it up with a wry smile: “It’s a really fucked-up movie.”

The Playlist, which picked-up the story as well, further explains that Life After Beth was originally a UK zombie short that came out in 2010.  I have attached the short film below.  It hasn’t been confirmed, but considering they share the same title and both revolve around a couple, love, and zombies, I think it’s safe to say that this is a full-length adaptation of that short.  Any indication of what the film is going to be about isn’t going to be found in the short film.  The 7 minute short plays out like a dream sequence between a girl and her now turned zombie boyfriend and relays more of a metaphor of lost-love than a full narrative. It’s a hauntingly beautiful piece that is all the more powerful thanks to the inclusion of a song by Arab Strap in the background.  As more information about the full-length feature becomes available we will let you know.

Somewhere between growing up on a steady diet of Saturday morning trips to the local comic-book shop, collecting an unhealthy amount of action figures, and frequent viewings of Ray Harryhausen and Hammer Horror films, came forth a nerdy boy that was torn between journalism and the arts. In high school, Michael found himself writing a movie column for the school newspaper. Yet, he went on to get a BFA in Studio Art at Webster University. When not writing about films, you can still find him discussing classic horror, collecting action figures, and reading Batman. Clearly, not much has changed.
