What could possibly go wrong when three buddies (Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan) decide to join the Boy Scouts? When bloodthirsty, undead ghouls invade their once-peaceful town, it's up to kindhearted Ben, quick-witted Carter and class clown Augie to save the day. With help from Denise (Sarah Dumont), a beautiful but tough cocktail waitress, the boys must put their scouting skills to the ultimate test to save mankind and earn their zombie-killing badges.

I was so excited when I saw the promos for this one and looked forward to seeing it. I think it was at the theater...never...or maybe one weekend. It just disappeared and that is always a bad sign. When lo and behold it showed up On Demand so the whole family decided to watch it (me, husband, 14 and 20 year old daughters)! We all have the same taste in movies. There was a mixed bag of reactions. My husband loved it. The three boys coming of age stuff in the beginning...the girls and I thought that part was boring and we were no longer surprised that it died a quick cinematic death. But the second half of the movie rocked and was what we were expecting from this type of movie. It is basically a crude, silly, humor, horror flick. Lots of boob and penis jokes and of course zombie killing. Everything from start to finish was predictable and cliche, but it had one of the best penis sight gags I've seen. 

If you can grab this one for cheap and like stupid crude humor then go for it. There are some great scenes sprinkled throughout. Best seen with a bunch of friends so you can riff on it.

2 "zombie" sheep for the first half, 3 "zombie" sheep for the second half.



  1. I forced the Hub to take me to the theater to see this one. We have complete different tastes in movies. He HATES everything zombie. I snickered and snorted for most of the movie. The Hub rolled his eyes at me for the entire movie. LOL!

  2. I was wondering how this movie would fair when I saw the preview. Now I know! ;)
