I don't really know how to feel about that movie. I don't think that it was horror thou, remember that scene when the group of zombies were shuffling along and a human stomach fell form above? I expected to see a cool shot of some gore, but the boney barely scratch him! He was just giving the victim a belly rub over his kool-aid stained shirt! I also didn't think that the bonies were scary, when they're in a big group I could see where they repasted the same animation in a loop, ruining the eerie feeling. The comedic was entertaining a little, but I didn't like the cardboard cutout of a female love interests.

But, I didn't know it started out as a book, and it sounds like it has more to it then the movie, so I'll check it out. (P.S. I had more feels for the main girl's friend then her. I mean she became a doctor at the end, she was living her dream!)

See I can't stand gore at all, and I don't think a horror movie needs gore in order for it to be classified as horror. In fact, it seems as long as the movie has horrific creatures in it, its classified as a horror movie. Interview with a Vampire is labeled as a horror movie. And the Shining, Signs, and m=Mama scared me to pieces when I first saw them. Minimal gore in those movies I might add. This is just my opinion on it though and everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
An yeah about those animation loops. Hell yes I noticed them, I'm an animator for Peat's sake. That shit was similar to the animation for a video game. But I'm not saying the movie was perfect in this comic. Just that I enjoyed it. Did it scare me, no, but it had it's suspenseful moments. And I could connect with some of those characters in real terror.
I also want to mention that If you loved Julies friend in the movie, you will love her in the book. She gets a lot more character development and sassy moments. I think I would have liked both the movie and the book more if Julie was the half black chick who wanted to be a nurse, who happened to have an average blond best friend.

Teeheehee! It was pretty awesome! The book is awesome too. You may even have more feels. It's much less funny, and much more deep and sad, but still romantic and cute.

I'm actually almost finished with the book and I'll have to disagree with you. I think the book has waaaay more humor in it than the movie, but its a very different kind of humor and its also contrasted by really deep thoughts on life and what it means to be 'human. So far though I think the movie works better as a story than the book. However the book makes you think a whole hell of a lot more about really deep concepts.

That is true-- the more I think about the book, the more I realize what concepts were missing from the film (though I still haven't re-watched film to contrast).

Idk about humor though, maybe I just don't get written humor as much as spoken, because I'm relying on vocal cues, but the film made me laugh most of the way through, and the book, while amusing at times, never made me so much has chortle.

I was wrapped up in a world of feels. I laughed and gripped the sides of my chair. Also It was refreshing to see that this wasn't your typical zombie movie, this was the quirky cousin of that zombie movie, who you think you know, until you actually meet them and then they are cool, even though the first guy stole your yu gi oh cards once.
