It would be understandable to assume that zombies, those great flesh-eating metaphors for herd mentality, consumerism, and all bad things, would be identical. This is not always so, as Warm Bodies illustrates. Here you have a thinking man’s zombie—or at least one who does, in fact, think. R thinks so much that he feels, feels enough to fall in love with a live broad. If ever there was someone who didn’t quite fit in, it’s the zombie who makes sly herpes jokes and groans Sinatra. Awwwww.
