Trivia: Warm Bodies actually has tons of references to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, it is kind of a modern adaptation. The zombie, R(omeo), falls in love with the human girl Julie(t). An impossible love, as both “species” fight against each other. Julie has an Italian last name, Grigio, has a boyfriend, Perry, who represents Paris from Romeo and Juliet. But there is another similarity that makes it much more obvious: Ever thought about the scene at Julie’s home, where she is standing on her balcony and looking down to R? And suddenly, Nora (who obviously represents the nurse) shows up? We know that scene very well. And finally, their love unites zombies and humans and stops their war. Fortunately, the ending is not inspired by the play .
