I’m not gonna lie, I’m sort of excited for Life After Beth. I’ve heard that director Jeff Baena’s film is fun yet slight, but it seems like the kind of slight I could get into. And A24 has just released two clips that continue to further my anticipation of a film I might enjoy in the most casual of ways. The film stars Dane DeHaan as a young man whose girlfriend (Aubrey Plaza) comes back from the dead, only to start deteriorating into a flesh-craving zombie. One of these new clips highlights the apparent fact that smooth jazz can soothe a zombie while the other is more of a John Hughes-ish look at the dynamic between DeHaan and his older brother in the film that has a bit of a “Wyatt vs. Chet” Weird Science vibe.
Hit the jump to watch the Life After Beth clips. You can also check out Adam’s Sundance interviews with Plaza & DeHaan and writer/director Jeff Baena. The film also stars Matthew Gray Gubler, Paul Reiser, Anna Kendrick, and Cheryl Hines. Life After Beth debuts exclusively on DirecTV on July 17th and opens in limited release on August 15th.
In particular I like the gun cleaning scene. No idea why, it’s just a few nudges above middle-of-the-road territory but I guess that’s sometimes where my tastes lie. The smooth jazz one is okay, but paints in broader strokes. Here’s the official synopsis for Life After Beth:
Zach (Dane DeHaan) is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth (Aubrey Plaza). But when she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before.
However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zach’s whole world takes a turn for the worse.
