In the 2013 romantic comedy-horror film Warm Bodies, Nicholas Hoult stars as R, a zombie who falls in love with Julie (Teresa Palmer), a human survivor of the zombie apocalypse. John Malkovich plays Julie's father, the leader of a gated community of humans. The film takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies have taken over most of the world. R is a zombie who lives in an abandoned airport with other zombies. He has no memory of his previous life and only communicates through grunts and groans.
One day, R and a group of zombies encounter a group of human survivors led by Julie's father, General Grigio (John Malkovich). R sees Julie and is immediately smitten with her, but when he eats her boyfriend's brain and gains his memories, R becomes haunted by their love and feels guilty.
R takes Julie back to the airport to protect her from the other zombies, and they begin to bond. Julie sees that there may be a possibility of R's humanity returning. They both work together in finding a way to stop the spread of the "Boneys," zombie that are far gone and have no human likeness anymore. They sneak out of the airport and into the city to try and find a cure.
Throughout the film, we see the two main characters learning to empathize with each other's humanity and realize that they are not so different after all. R begins to regain his sense of self, slowly becoming more human-like with each passing day, while Julie begins to see the potential for change in the zombies.
Warm Bodies is a unique film in that it manages to combine horror and romance in a fun and engaging way. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Isaac Marion and was directed by Jonathan Levine.
The acting in the film is excellent, with Nicholas Hoult doing an excellent job of conveying a range of emotion despite being covered in makeup and prosthetics. Teresa Palmer also delivers a great performance as Julie, showing strong character development throughout the film.
John Malkovich is excellent as General Grigio, playing the role of a stern and unyielding leader perfectly. His character serves as an obstacle for the two young lovers, forcing them to fight against him in order to be together.
Overall, Warm Bodies is a romantic comedy-horror film that manages to balance the two genres in a fresh and new way. The film features strong performances from its cast and a clever script that is both entertaining and thought-provoking.
