Warm Bodies

Synopsis: With much of the world's population now an undead horde, R is a young and oddly introspective zombie. While fighting with and feeding on a human scavenger party, R meets Julie and feels an urge to protect her. What happens next is the beginning of a strangely warm relationship that allows R to begin regaining his humanity. As this change spreads through the local undead population like a virus, Julie and R eventually have to face a larger issue when the very nature of their friendship is challenged. Caught between the paranoid human forces and the ferocious "Bonies", zombies who are a mutual threat, R and Julie must find a way to bridge the differences of each side to fight for a better world no one thought possible.

What I'm doing with my life?

I'm so pale. I should get out more.

You should eat better. My posture is terrible.

I had to keep myself upright.

People would respect me more if I kept upright.

What's wrong with me? I just want to connect.

Cause I can not connect with people?

Oh, right.

It's because I'm dead.

It should not be so hard on me.

I mean, we're all dead.

This girl is dead. This guy is dead.

That guy in the corner is definitely dead.

Jesus, this guy is horrible.


I would like to introduce myself, but I can not remember my name.

I mean, I know it starts with R, but that's all I have left.

I can not remember my name or my parents or my work.

And my hood suggests that I was unemployed.

Sometimes I looked at each other and tried to guess what they were.

You were a janitor.

You were the wealthy son of a CEO of a corporation.

You were ...

A personal trainer.

Now you are the body.

I struggle to piece together the clues of how the apocalypse thing happened.

He came from a chemical warfare, or even an airborne virus ...

Or an outbreak Radioactive monkeys?

But it does not matter. This is where we are now.

This is a typical day for me.

I waver around, occasionally striker in people,

Unable to apologize, or say much.

Must have been a lot better before,

When everyone could express themselves, communicate their feelings

And just enjoy each other's company.

Many of us made our home here in this airport. I do not know why.

People waiting in airports I think, but am not sure of what we hope.

Oh, man. They call this bony boys.

Do not bother us, but eat anything that has a heartbeat.

I mean, I also

But at least I'm conflicted about this.

We all become them one day.

At some point you give up, I guess.

Lose hope. After that, there is no turning back.

Oh man, that rude, do not pull it. You are getting worse.

This is what I have to face.

It's a beautiful bummer.

I do not want to be like.

I am alone. I'm lost.

I mean, I'm literally lost. I've never been in this part of the airport before.

These guys also seem lost.

Walking around without ever reaching anywhere.

They feel trapped.

They want more than that.

I'm not the only one.

This is my best friend.

By best friend I mean that occasionally

Grunhimos and frighteningly face each other.

Sometimes we even talk about.

The days pass this way ...

But sometimes, we even find the actual words ...

Words like:
- Hunger.

- City.

We can only communicate by sharing our love of food.

Traveling to the past makes sense.

Especially when everyone and their grandmother trying to give you a head shot.

God, as we are slow!

This will take a while.

Hello, I would like to thank their services today.

Since this plague destroyed the world,

- And nobody works on healing. - And the survival of our world ...

- No one believes more in healing Julie. - Through ...

Volunteers like you,

To take resources beyond the wall.

The first word of advice:

Human bodies appear, but are not.

They do not feel. They do not bleed.

Whether your mother or your best friend, are beyond your help.

They are indifferent, insensitive.

They are incapable of feeling remorse.

Reminds me of someone I know, Dad.

They are just an image, like this:

As sons and daughters that enable the soul continues ...

In human settlement with honor.

You are the critical part that stands between us we ...

And extinction.

So take the obligation to return safely.

And if you remember the training,


Good luck, good journey, and God bless America.

The U.S.! USA!

Let's do this.
