Based on the book by Isaac Marion.
Zombie R is not as rotten as some of his kin yet, and rescues the girl Julie instead of eating her, keeps her safe from the bonies and other zombies who try to kill her, and even takes her back home. She gives him and some others back their heartbeat, and R falls in love with her, although they still remain undead. With the bonies out to kill Julie for "infecting" their submissive zombies, Julie has to prove to her father, the general of their surviving community, that R is changing. She can't let her father kill the boy she has fallen for, right?
While it wasn't much like the book since it missed Perry's snarky comments, it followed the plot quite closely otherwise, expect for the epiloque ending. However, I had the feeling this was a lot cuter and funnier than the book, and I liked the cast.
