I Saw This In The Theater

3It’s about a high school senior who finally works up the nerve to ask out the girl of his dreams, only to be killed right after doing so. But death isn’t going to stop Johnny from taking Missy McCloud to the prom. So, he comes back. That’s right, he comes back for his one night of glory.

The film is campy, smart, and hopelessly romantic. In other words: it’s perfect. In terms of zombie romance competition, there isn’t much out there aside from Warm Bodies. And Shaun of the Dead can also be called a zombie rom-com, though the leading man isn’t one of the undead. The thing that My Boyfriend’s Back and Warm Bodies has in common is the zombie love interest. And, in this author’s humble opinion, My Boyfriend’s Back is the stronger movie.

See Why
