Life After Beth is definitely one of the more inspired black comedies to come out in recent months. The movie starts with Zach Orfman (Dane DeHaan) feeling utterly devastated due to the death of his girlfriend Beth (Aubrey Plaza), who passed away after succumbing to a snake bite. While visiting her parents’ house one day though, he discovers that she has somehow come back to life.
Neither her mom nor dad have any explanation for why she’s back from the dead, nor do they want to know. They’re just happy to have their little girl back. Zach is thrilled, too, as it gives him another chance to do all the things with Beth that he never got to do before. However, it soon becomes apparent that Beth is not the same person she used to be, and having a relationship with her is going to be extremely complicated.
Last week, I landed an exclusive interview with DeHaan and Plaza while they were at the film’s press day, which was held in the London Hotel in West Hollywood, California. Together, they spoke about what drew them to this particular project, Aubrey described her transformation from a regular human being into something quite monstrous, and I asked if there was anyone from their own lives that they would like to see resurrected.
Check it all out in the interview above, and be sure to catch Life After Beth right now on VOD or starting tomorrow in theatres!
