While most of us are still trying to wrap our heads around a Joe Dante-less Gremlins remake, the legendary director has a new film on the horizon—the undead comedy Burying the Ex, which looks (and sounds) a lot like last year’s indie hit Life After Beth. But where Life after Beth is about a second chance at love, Dante appropriately leans on a more sick and twisted take on a clingy girlfriend returning from the dead.
I’ll be the first to admit that this trailer isn’t the best—that font, though—but a lot of Dante’s signature horror-comedy blend certainly shows up in parts, highlighting what should be a fun take on a genre that could use it. Burying the Ex will see a release in both limited theaters and on VOD this June 19th.
Max is dating the overbearing Evelyn who he’s afraid to break up with. When she’s killed in a freak accident, he falls in love with Olivia, with whom he is much better suited. However Evelyn rises from the grave.
The film stars Anton Yelchin, Alexandra Daddario, Ashley Greene and Oliver Cooper.
