Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse Review

Image for Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse

When the zombie apocalypse breaks out, Ben (Sheridan), Carter (Miller), and Augie (Morgan) must use their scouting skills to lead the fight back.

★★★★★

Three boy scouts earn their Brain Bashing badges when an undead virus hits town. Pitched as a tongue-through-cheek homage to the under-dork teen movie, Christopher Landon’s rowdy zom-com combines raging hormones with rampaging gore — Superbad in Zombieland, and better than it sounds. It takes a while to warm up, but once the outbreak surges into merry splatstick, Landon lands some killer gags — in particular, a trampoline skit that boings into a bad-taste worthy of the Farrellys. The likable cast includes warrior-waitress Sarah Dumont and David Koechner as an unstoppable zombie ranger with a Dolly Parton fetish.

A likable horror-comedy with a satisfyingly high splatter count.
