Review

A master of B movies, Joe Dante is one and only filmmaker whose source of creation is in the B movies. In this zombie horror romance and comedy, he skillfully shows the core elements of the genre. After his obsessive girlfriend Evelyn died in a car accident, Max falls in love with a new girl but gets in trouble with his former girlfriend risen from the grave. The cliche of classic zombie films and the motif of the film are the existence of immortal being, what the film calls “ex”. Everybody has his/her own ex (exes), things which don’t die but keep coming back to torment them. While crossing the vast field of genre, the director raises a question of how we can break up with the silly past. (JANG Byungwon)
