I’m a huge fan of director Joe Dante. How could you not be at least a little bit in love with a career that encapsulates films like Gremlins, The Howling and The ‘Burbs, not to mention one of the best sequels of all time, Gremlins 2: The New Batch? So I’m definitely looking forward to his new film Burying the Ex, which looks like it finds Dante back in the realm of horror comedy mayhem. The film premieres tomorrow at the Venice Film Festival in Italy and we’re celebrating with some exclusive pics that depict Ashley Greene‘s character Evelyn in various states of zombie satiation.
Hit the jump for the Burying The Ex images. The film also stars Anton Yelchin, Alexandra Daddario and Oliver Cooper. I was on the set of the film last year and it will definitely appeal to horror fans and cinema buffs in general. Check back tomorrow for an exclusive interview with Joe Dante.
Here’s the official synopsis for Burying the Ex:
BURYING THE EX follows Max (Anton Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Ashely Greene). Their relationship takes a nosedive after they decide to move in together and Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare. Max realizes it’s time to call it quits, but there’s just one problem: he’s too afraid to break up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Several weeks later, he has a chance encounter with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario), a cute and spirited girl who just might be his soul mate. But that same night, Evelyn returns from the grave as a dirt-smeared Zombie and she’s determined to live happily ever after with Max …even if that means turning him into one of the undead.
