A little Dante in-joke: The goth bartender (Mark Alan) is actually a reprisal of the character "Mortis" from Roger Corman's Netflix series "Splatter" also directed by Joe Dante. Costume, makeup and even Alan's hair are all the same. See more »
At one point early in the movie, Evelyn tells Max he should "replace those incandescent tubes, and get some compact fluorescents". The bulbs shown are in fact fluorescent tubes (not incandescent), and compact fluorescent bulbs would not work in that type of fixture. See more »

A guy (Anton Yelchin)'s regrets over moving in with his girlfriend (Ashley Greene) are compounded when she dies and comes back as a zombie.
Apparently this film has largely negative reviews. That surprises me. I can understand mixed reviews, because this is definitely not Joe Dante's finest film. But where are the horror fans who appreciate all the great references? This is definitely a love letter to horror fans, the ones who are gore to the core.
Maybe the humor was a little off. I thought the sex factor was played up a bit more than it ought to have been (but I am also very prudish). And Ashley Greene was somewhat annoying (though this was how her character was scripted, so that should be a compliment). Overall, this was enjoyable and light. I can see it getting improved reviews as time goes on.
