A funny new twist on a classic love story, WARM BODIES is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human - setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's not gruesome enough to please genre fans, but not nearly funny enough to be a comedy either. It tries to be a mixture of both and fails."
‑ Tim Alamenciak, Toronto Star
"It's all very silly and sweet in that indie-nostalgic way that Levine ('The Wackness' and '50/50') has made his own."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"To truly appreciate this zombie Romeo & Juliet you either go all the way with it or not at all."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"Warm Bodies is an ingenious hybrid that, at its best, manages to be funny, lyrical and gruesome."
‑ Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
"Let's be clear: This is a popcorn flick. The CGI effects are laughable, and it takes a while to adjust to the willfully cheeseball tone, but once it clicks, it's irresistible. In this world, all you need is love. And sometimes a shotgun."
‑ Kelly Clarke, Willamette Week
"A muddled teenpic."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Warm Bodies doesn't even have the conviction to follow through on its lame ideas, let alone its good ones. It's a mostly terrible film that misses the opportunity to be a merely mediocre one."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"It's a toss-up which genre more needs the adrenaline boost Warm Bodies provides: the zombie movie or the romantic comedy."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"The film does win you over. This is largely in part to its pair of young actors, Hoult and Palmer, who and have a great deal of chemistry and inject a zip and a fizz into all of their scenes."
‑ Caitlin Hughes, Film School Rejects
"This is such a well-written, well-acted, and well-paced film with a great payoff at the end that it proves that "adorable" and "zombie movie" are capable of coexisting together."
‑ Tracie Cooper, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"This is a love story, done with charm, humor, and tenderness."
‑ David Thomson, The New Republic
"This is a bloody fresh twist on the zombie genre."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"Warm Bodies proves a movie can have a lot of heart even when the heart of one of the characters isn't beating."
‑ Rick Bentley, Fresno Bee
"Warm Bodies goes straight on to my guilty-pleasures list."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"mixes a unique style with a talented young cast to create a grizzly but likeable treat"
‑ James Luxford, The National
