This post-apocalyptic zombie rom-com proves that the after-effect of The Twilight Saga is still lingering like the persistent stench of the undead. The artifice is simple, at once classical and a no-brainer: a cross species romance between photogenic creatures, namely the living and the dead, set in an artificially hostile environment where the inter-mating stops short at kisses.
Starring Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich. Directed by Jonathan Levine.
The pallid, flesh-eating hunk in this case is played with appropriate weirdo charm by Nicholas Hoult; and at first I thought I was hallucinating to mistake the leading woman, Teresa Palmer, as Kristen Stewart from Twilight, but other eyewitnesses also confirmed the uncanny likeness. So there you go, the reincarnations of Edward and Bella will continue to haunt us unconverted for a while.
