God bless Joe Dante. In the 1970s and 80s he directed a number of cult classics, including Piranha, The Howling, Gremlins, Explorers and Innerspace.
Since 1998, with the release of the box office bomb Small Soldiers, (from Dreamworks), none of his movies have made it to the big screen via a major motion picture studio.
His latest, Burying The Ex, is a sort of straight to DVD release, with the exception that it gets a one week release in both NYC and LA beforehand via the studio IMAGE, which is, for the most part, a home entertainment studio, specializing in B-list and worse movies.
When Max (Anton Yelchin) learns that his new live-in girlfriend, Evelyn (Ashley Greene) is controlling and manipulative, he is afraid to end the relationship. However, fate occurs and Evelyn is killed in a freak accident. A couple months have passed and Max meets his dream girl, Olivia (Alexandra Daddario). The new romance gets tricky when Evelyn comes back from the grave and insists on continuing their once relationship by all means.
