Warm Bodies is the film adaptation of Isaac Marion’s novel which bares the same name. A new take on the zombie genre, which adds some warmth to the walking dead, or are they? It depends on if you are a zombie or what is called a “Boney”, a walking, boney corpse, who will eat anything with a heartbeat. The difference being, our zombie character R saying, “I will too, but at least I’m conflicted about it.”
That’s right a narrating zombie! In the book described as “a young man with an existential crisis–he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.” I think it sounds lovely.
What makes this story even more interesting is the love interest. Not between two of our survivors but R and one of the living.
Please watch and enjoy!
