With the rise of the teenage movie audience the horror genre has seen itself, for lack of a better word, shared. Take your average teen, romantic comedy and the create a horror hybrid that falls just under the acceptable boob, obscenity clause in the MPAA guideline so as to earn a PG-13. The result is a handsome opening weekend box office route of nearly any title Hollywood can dish up based solely on the demographic to which it appeals and the wide array of folks who can actually make it into a PG-13 feature as opposed to an R rated feature. The end result is typically a homogenized, clean version of horrific lore told with pants up and boobies well-holstered.
I am glad to report that Warm Bodies is not that movie despite what you may have heard on the internet (what’s that… inter-what?)
Come listen to the host of Dead Air, Jeff Konopka, Jimmy TERROR and Jesse Bartel discuss in depth just what makes Warm Bodies tick. How is Warm Bodies different than features that may borrow from the horror genre. How is it different from movies that borrow from the horror genre that have been adapted from successful novels. How is Warm Bodies different from movies that borrow from the horror genre that have been adapted from successful novels that may also feature gangley pale male protagonists in love with a rather unlikely lady. In other words Warm Bodies ain’t Twilight with Zombies. You’ll have to listen to the rest including a brief discussion of what we’ve been watching lately and general chicanery.
