The film follows the story of Zach (Dane DeHaan), a young man who is grieving over the sudden death of his girlfriend Beth (Aubrey Plaza). However, when Beth mysteriously returns from the dead, Zach is ecstatic and begins to reconnect with her. As Beth’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, Zach realizes that something is not quite right and discovers that the resurrected Beth is not quite the same as the girl he once knew.

“Life After Beth” is a unique take on the zombie genre, blending horror and comedy in a way that is both entertaining and thought-provoking. The film explores themes of grief, loss, and the ways in which we hold onto the people we love, even after they are gone. The performances of the cast, particularly Aubrey Plaza, are standout, and the film received positive reviews for its originality and humor.
