Title: Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse
DVD Release Date: January 5, 2016
Time: 93 minutes
Three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one badass cocktail waitress to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they’ll fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead.
I never got on the zombie train, no The Walking Dead for me. Although I do watch iZombie, because I loved Veronica Mars, and it’s from the same producers. But when I saw the trailer for this movie, I instantly wanted to watch it.
I really enjoy Horror/Comedy, especially if it’s done well, like this one. Besides having great one liners, and lots of gore and splatter, this movie actually has a storyline, that made me root for the characters. Ben and Carter have been in Scouts with Augie forever. Augie still loves it, and will be getting a big award, but Ben and Carter want to stop going to Scouts and move onto something more grown-up. Ben wants to spare Augie’s feelings, and keeps putting off telling him. But when the Zombie Apocalypse begins, all kinds of secrets come out…. including the intense love that their Scout master has for Dolly Parton.
The situations that the main characters get into with the zombies, as well as how they get away from them are amusing. There are a lot of boobs, but if you combine teenagers and horror, you have to have them. If you enjoyed Cooties or Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, then there is an excellent chance you’ll like this one too.
