Joe Dante, still one of my favorite directors, returns to the horror-comedy genre with BURYING THE EX, a simple tale of a boy, a girl, and the boy's dead ex-girlfriend. The film is prepped to hit VOD next week, and in anticipation of that we've got an exclusive clip that brings to light the resurrection of deceased ex Evelyn (Ashely Greene). Also, you have an opportunity to watch Daddario act extremely cute. That's a bonus.
It seemed like a great idea when Max, an all-around nice guy (Anton Yelchin), and Evelyn, his beautiful girlfriend (Ashley Greene), moved in together. When Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare, Max knows it’s time to call it quits, but there’s just one problem: he’s terrified of breaking up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Just as Max is thinking about moving on with what could be his dream girl, Olivia (Alexandra Daddario) – Evelyn has returned from the grave and is determined to get her boyfriend back...even if that means transforming him into one of the undead.
Starring Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, Alexandra Daddario and Oliver Cooper, BURYING THE EX comes out on June 19th. We'll have a review up soon.
