Apparently, the producers of the Paranormal Activity movies,made this flick and it came off just as weird and strange as the Paranormal Activity films. In the flick, characters Lacey and Daniel Barrett are living in the suburbs with their two kids Jessie and Sam Barrett.

Like these movie usually play out, everything seemed fine and peaceful at first. However, little Sam starts seeing a strange creature and calls it the Sandman.

New ‘Warm Bodies’ Movie Delivered Extremely Weird Storyline,Action,Drama & More

New ‘Warm Bodies’ movie delivered extremely weird storyline,action,drama & more. Summit Entertainment released their new comedy/drama/thriller flick “Warm Bodies ” into theaters this weekend.

It stars: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco,and Cory Hardrict.

Apparently, this movie was based on one of those weird novels like Twilight,where the monster can actually act human and be nice and shit. If that weren’t enough,he can actually make the girl fall in love with him. That sort of thing. However instead of vampires,it was with zombies,and I’ll say it again,it was the weirdest freaking thing to watch. I thought, “Oh my gosh. What have I gotten myself into,trying to watch this.”

Anyways, some weird zombie named R (because he couldn’t remember his name) ,saves a girl named Julie from the other zombies,because he can somehow think for himself and fight off the urge of being a zombie,even though he’s supposed to be dead. Then he eventually starts formulating words,because they want us to ,I guess,buy the fact that he’s slowly curing himself and becoming human again. And believe me when I tell you this. It comes off really,really bad. Read more »
