The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ "Burying the Ex" : Not as easy as originally advertised.

Honey Buzz ~ "Burying the Ex" : Not as easy as originally advertised.

Move over Warm Bodies, a new rom/zom/com is coming your way -Burying the Ex is the answer to all of that sappy love story crap and moves right in to territory attempts to speak to...well...guys who are terrified of getting tied down to the wrong woman. No seriously. That's what it is. 


I might not have the Joe Dante hard-on that everyone else seems to be sporting, so perhaps I missed the irony of the point. OR, I was so annoyed with the gross amount of misogyny associated with the original source of this clip that I've just got rage blinders on, but whatever. 

But...she's so...HOT
The story [edited for my amusement]: Max (new genre favorite, Anton Yelchin from Odd Thomas), is a generally nice guy - what does that even mean? What does a generally nice guy do? Does he kick puppies, but only on weekends? Problems arise when our "generally nice guy" moves in with his "super hot, but totally overbearing girlfriend" Evelyn (Ashley Greene, Twilight) - good thing she's super hot, it makes the rest of her behavior a little more acceptable, amirite guys? Predictably, their relationship hits the skids as she becomes a manipulative and pushy stereotype - but hey, at least she didn't get fat. Max knows that he needs to pull the plug on this toxic love affair, but because he's generally a nice guy and we're supposed to feel bad for him, he doesn’t - the original review called him a spineless chickenshit... Luckily for Max, Evelyn dies in a freak accident -PHEW, who needs relationship conflict! and Max is suddenly free of his ball and chain and promptly starts to put the moves on "potential soul mate" Olivia (Alexandra Daddario, True Detective) - because doesn't EVERY guy have a backup waiting in the wings "just in case" - no seriously, how is this even a plot point? What the actual fuck. But true love won't be denied. Continuing her overbearing behavior from beyond the clutches of death, Evelyn comes back from the grave and expects to continue life as normal...
Predictably, hilarity ensues.


What's in the clip: Evelyn is back from the grave, and is up for some awkward frisky business - the awkward part? We all know she's dead...plus there's some Death Becomes Her action going on, which I quite enjoyed. I'm rooting for the zombie BTW.



Burying the Ex premiered at the Venice Film Festival this past week - so that means an official trailer, promo stills and an official release date should be on the horizon.
