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.

This looks awesome, Ryan!
Glad you think so, too! Hopefully it’s another hit for Dante!
I’d love to get an interview with Joe Dante seeing as how I’ve already talked with Belinda Balaski and Dee Wallace. It would be great to pick his brain about The Howling, Gremlins and those other awesome films he’s been a part of.
Yeah, how awesome would that be? Seems like a really cool dude, too!
Hey, (Belinda) Balaski and (Dee) Wallace were both super cool and they both spoke highly of Joe so…
Sounds like a pretty good time to me! Hoping for a theater release as I don’t currently have any way of VOD watching. 😦
It certainly has the potential to be a lot of fun, that’s for sure. It is getting a theatrical release, it’s just going to be very limited so hopefully you’ll be near a theater that shows it.
I really like Anton Yelchin, so I will be checking this out. But it does sound very similar to Life After Beth!
