Zombie movies don’t really attract me very much. They’re scary monsters that invade the world and eat every human they encounter. But Life After Beth is not an ordinary zombie film. It carries a storyline that sends messages that you can relate to your own life and lessons you may learn as the movie progresses.

Starring Dane DeHaan and Aubrey Plaza, Life After Beth revolves around Zach’s life after his girlfriend Beth’s sudden death. After a few days of wallowing in sadness and regret, though, Beth has somehow come back to life for an unknown reason. Zach therefore takes this opportunity to not miss any of the things he failed to do before her death. Of course, he soon realizes that the Beth who came back is no longer the same Beth that he used to know.

From Zach’s break-in to Beth’s house to their beachside moment to the rise of the dead to Zach’s and Beth’s hike up the mountains, every occurrence will keep you at the edge of your seat.

Now, I don’t want to spoil you with the whole story. So, instead, I’ll simply share the lessons you could pick up from watching Life After Beth.

3. Do what you have to do. And do it now.

Four words: You Only Live Once. So yes, you might as well do what you have to do – right now. No buts, no ifs, no maybes. The perfect moment may be taken away from you and it may not happen again. Just like how Zach and Maury regretted having an argument with Beth and not saying or showing how much they loved her before she died. As they say: you never know what you have until it’s gone. At least you can say you haven’t regretted anything in your life because you’ve done what you’re supposed to.

2. Only the truth can set you free.

Sometimes, hiding the truth will only make the situation worse. Remember: no matter how hard you work on keeping a secret, it will always find a way to escape and reach the open. In the movie, they remained mum about Beth being a zombie, which turned out to be a horrible decision. Just tell the truth.

1. Letting go is never easy, but you’ll get over it. In time.

The movie reflects how longing for a loved one can let out the best or worst in a person. Zach, while on the losing end and devastated by his loss, faced the biggest obstacles of his life: acceptance and recovery. He was haunted by Beth and when she came back, she became a nightmare for him. In this life, if you keep on clinging to something that’s already gone, you’ll keep on hurting yourself. When Zach finally let go, he was greeted by a new beginning.
