Warm Bodies: Both... And... and Neither... Nor

Warm Bodies is a nice film about zombies. The story is well conducted and some of the scenes can be really funny - or even scary. I liked it a lot.


Watch the movie segment and check who performed the following actions. R (the zombie) or Julie (the girlfriend of one of his victims), or both. Write B for both or N for none of them.
