The first clip from Joe Dante’s (Gremlins, The Hole, The Burbs) new horror comedy, Burying the Ex, has landed on-line tonight courtesy of Deadline, and you can view the rather amusing clip below.
The clip shows off some great use of comedy within a horror film, and just might feature the hottest zombie girl we’ve seen for quite some time?
Joe Dante directs from a screenplay written by Alan Trezza. The cast includes Anton Yelchin (Fright Night 2011), Ashley Greene (The Apparition), Alexandra Daddario (TCM 3D) and Oliver Cooper (Project X).
BURYING THE EX follows Max (Anton Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Ashely Greene). Their relationship takes a nosedive after they decide to move in together and Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare. Max realizes it’s time to call it quits, but there’s just one problem: he’s too afraid to break up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Several weeks later, he has a chance encounter with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario), a cute and spirited girl who just might be hissoul mate. But that same night, Evelyn returns from the grave as a dirt-smeared Zombie and she’s determined to live happily ever after with Max …even if that means turning him into one of the undead.
In the same vein as WARM BODIES and SHAUN OF THE DEAD, Dante’s BURYING THE EX is a not too serious homage to Dante’s beloved movies. The film is a commercial popcorn movie that explores an unconventional love triangle within the fleeting world of young love.
