LIFE AFTER BETH dvd
When we meet Zach (Dane DeHaan), he's in mourning. His girlfriend Beth Slocum (Aubrey Plaza) had been hiking alone when Zach didn't want to go with her, and she got bitten by a snake and died. Zack's gloom isn't helped by his parents or militaristic brother Kyle (Matthew Gray Gubler), so he spends more and more time hanging out with Beth's parents. Geenie Slocum (Molly Shannon) is generally positive, while Maury Slocum (John C. Reilly) plays chess and shared weed with Zach. When Zach confides that he and Beth were having problems, Maury advises him to focus on the good, not the ending.
Zach is surprised when Maury and Geenie stop taking his calls. Investigating, Zach is more surprised to find... Beth! At first Zach assumes that her family faked her death, but the truth is stranger:A few days after her funeral, Beth dug her way out of her grave and returned home. Zach is concerned that Beth might be a zombie, but Maury is thrilled that she's been resurrected ("Like Jesus!") and wants to keep her hidden,
