There are genre movies, and then there are genre movies directed by Joe Dante. As his fans can attest, he always brings a distinct panache and style to whatever wild tale he tells, and Dante recently put his stamp on the zombie comedy with “Burying The Ex.” For fans of the movie and the director, we have a big prize pack today — a Blu-ray, plus a poster signed by Dante and the film’s stars, Anton Yelchin and Alexandra Daddario.
If you haven’t see the movie, the story follows nice guy Max who moves in with his beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn, only to discover she’s a controlling, manipulative nightmare. Even though Max knows it’s time to call it quits, he’s terrified of breaking up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is the victim of a fatal accident, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Just as he’s thinking about moving on with what could be his dream girl, Olivia, Evelyn returns from the grave and is determined to get her boyfriend back.
