BURYING THE EX follows Max, all-around nice guy and classic movie buff, and his overbearing but incredibly sexy girlfriend, Evelyn. Their relationship takes a nosedive after Max invites Evelyn to move in and she turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare. Max realizes it’s time to call it quits, but he doesn’t want to hurt her so he stays the course. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max guilty, single but eventually ready to mingle. Several weeks later, Max has a chance encounter with Olivia, a cute and funny girl who also loves movies and who just might be his soul mate. But that same night, Evelyn becomes the “Ex Who Wouldn’t Die”– she’s back from the grave as a dirt-smeared undead (and horny) corpse, and she’s crazier about Max than ever. But crazy is the operative word, and Max’s life is turned upside down as his decomposing “Girlfriend from Hell” takes over while he tries to hide her “existence” from Olivia.
