Zombeavers - A Nice Night With Undead Beavers
Looking for an enjoyable movie night!?! Well look no further!
Anytime a movie attempts to be anything less than completely serious and depict itself in a less than straight-forward reality, it seem to run a serous risk of going too far or not far enough. Too far from reality and you get trash like Epic Movie, during which you just get to the point where you don't even care about the story or the characters anymore. Not far enough and you end up with something like Cowboys and Aliens, a film that departs from reality enough to give you the conflict promised by its title but failed to really find the campy tone (or story) that we showed up to see. When you see a movie called Zombeavers you know that it doesn't take itself too seriously. Luckily for all of us, they knocked this one out of the park.
Zombeavers is a movie that wears it's ridiculousness on it's sleeve. (or in this case, in the title) Undead beavers plague a group of young campers in this fun and funny twist on one of the most cliché horror movie plots. Think Cabin in the Woods meets Sharknado. I praise Zombeavers for it's wonderful use of practical effects, sexy characters, and surprisingly clever writing.
GO SEE IT: if you love (or even tolerate) horror films that don't take themselves TOO serious like, Slither, Sharknado, Shaun of the Dead, or Cabin in the Woods.
SKIP IT: if you are looking for Night of the Living Dead, Friday the 13th, The Shining, The Exorcist, or Nightmare on Elms St.
It is avaliable on Netflix.
I give it an 8 out of 10
