The film adaptation of his debut novel Warm Bodies is currently number one in the U.S., getting great reviews and after months of waiting, fans can now sink their teeth into its highly anticipated prequel, The New Hunger.
Warm Bodies takes a good deal of its commercial instincts from The Twilight Saga, but director Jonathan Levine instills the narrative with credible drama and lots of effective humor to make this a dark romantic fantasy suited for more than just the teen audience.
Warm Bodies genuinely adds a new idea to the zombie cannon, something that seems so simple that I'm surprised that someone didn't do it much earlier. In short, the film is told from the point of view of a zombie.
I read Marion's Warm Bodies and fell in love with it to the point that I stalked him online, begging for an interview. And he is either a glutton for punishment or just as nuts as I am because not only did he agree the first time, he came back for more.
Warm Bodies is poetic, violent, romantic, gore-filled, soul-filled, and just utterly brilliant. Isaac Marion's taken the classic zombie apocalypse formula and spun it into something completely new and different.
