Themes, Metaphors, & Interesting Asides
What does this film mean for the Zombie Genre?
"It made Technicolor out of something we all previously perceived to be black and white."

"It reinvented the interaction between humans and zombies without decimating a preexisting list of characteristics about Zombie films."

-Laurie Webb
Was it a social commentary?
"Absolutely - about how our interaction with technology is making us all zombies - we need to appreciate what is around us."

"Asks "R" to put down that thing that makes him feel alive for an instant, but is slowly killing him - slowly turning him into a Boney."

-Laurie Webb
What's the plan now?
Isaac is currently working on a novel that will be a prequel to Warm Bodies.
"Lukewarm Bodies" perhaps?
1:28 Technology
"It truly was the evolution of two written stories"
"The novel and the film were remarkably similar; the film's visual strongpoints captured what the novel explained in length"
"Very, very close and true to Issac's vision"
- Laurie Webb
