My verdict: I saw the trailer for Life After Beth a long time ago and I couldn’t wait to watch it. Then I read other people’s reviews and most people seemed to pan it, which was disappointing. I noticed it was on Netflix and decided to give it a go. I have to say that I did like it, but it was slow in parts and there was, as usual in films about zombies, no explanation for how the people came to be zombies. I think Aubrey Plaza is great in anything she’s in, and I have always been a big fan of John C. Reilly’s, so I would have watched it until the end no matter what. It’s a funny film and I’m glad that I watched it, but I wouldn’t rush to watch it again.

Rating: 3 out of 5

  1. I felt like this would have been a great Buffy episode but there wasn’t enough there for a whole film.
