Somewhere along the line, I became completely obsessed with zombies. I guess it’s not entirely surprising; the only thing that scares me more than zombies are sharks, and I eagerly anticipate the Discover Channel’s “Shark Week” with rabid fervor. The gateway drug that was Feed has extrapolated into a full-blown addiction.
And that’s why I let out a squeal when I heard that Fandango had a sneak peek at the first four minutes of “Warm Bodies,” the quirky teen romance based on the book by Isaac Marion. I have to say, after the video, I’m even more excited about the film.
I think the idea that there are spectrums of zombies is at once fascinating and terrifying. Think about it – the reason why the survivors in all of those horror movies can cope with their new world is because they know they’re not killing other human beings; they’re killing mindless monsters. But this “Warm Bodies” world appears to have sentient zombies along with the heinous mindless types. In all reality, I suppose the aware zombies get the worst end of the deal; imagine eating someone you know is a person and being unable to stop yourself from doing so. It twists my mind into a terrified little pretzel just thinking of all the moral consequences.
Regardless, this clip made me laugh out loud at least three times. I absolutely cannot wait for the movie when it hits theaters on February 1st. And expect a review of the book it’s based on soon!
The trailer for the film is below.
Canaries, what are your favorite scary thrills?
This looks like it’s right up my alley! Can’t wait!
February is so far away. I want to see it now!
Ohhh I don’t like zombie things, but this caught my mind so much! The 4 minutes did more to me than the trailer. Nuff said.
That’s exactly how I feel!
I’m usually not a fan of sentient zombie stories, but I want to see this one. Maybe it’s because of the “spectrum” you pointed out. Regardless, that 4 minutes looks good!
PS — If you’re such a zombie fan, I’d love to have you review my survive-your-own zombie adventure, INFECTED. You can check out my book trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoLGm18VRZo
