Make-Out With Violence

This interesting indie showed up at MOBS one day. Basically, it is a thoughtful look into the relationship between two brothers and the girls they love. Except... one of the girls happens to be a zombie.

In more detail:
A genre-bending tale of a boy trying to fulfill his unrequited love for a girl who has risen from the dead. Set against the backdrop of a summer of cicadas and melty milkshakes, the film blends elements of up-beat teenager melodrama with the strange gravity of classic coming of age stories.

It tells the story of twin brothers Patrick and Carol Darling, newly graduated from high school and struggling to come to terms with the mysterious disappearance of their friend, the bright and beautiful Wendy Hearst. When a drive through the countryside surrounding their posh suburban community leads to the discovery of Wendy's mysteriously animated corpse, the boys secretly transport the zombie Wendy to an empty house in hopes of somehow bringing her back to life. As the sweltering summer pushes on, they must maintain the appearance of normalcy for their friends and family as they search for ways to revive the Wendy they once knew, or, failing that, to satisfy their own quests for love amonst the living and the dead.

"A lyrical, surreal and deeply felt zombie movie that constantly subverts and rethinks the genre." - Jim Ridley, Village Voice

"It's pretty damn good." - Scott Weinberg, Cinematical
