First Posters: Aubrey Plaza in Zombie Comedy “LIFE AFTER BETH”

LIFE AFTER BETH is a horror-comedy that charts the ill-fated trajectory of reconnecting with an ex, but with zombies. It’s very funny, with an amazing turn from star Aubrey Plaza. It’s grosser than you might think, especially after laying eyes on the first posters, which play up its stars and the film’s indie, dark comedy vibe. 

In the film directed by Jeff Baena (writer, I HEART HUCKABEES), “Zach is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth. But when she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before. However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zach’s whole world takes a turn for the worse.”

A24, who already released the more art horror inclined ENEMY and UNDER THE SKIN this year, is putting out LIFE AFTER BETH on August 15th. DirecTV subscribers can see the film starting July 17, however.
