Zombeavers has been causing a buzz on the Internet in recent weeks, and its trailer has already amassed over 1.8 million YouTube views.
Okay, either this is me telling you to see this movie post haste, or else it’s me warning you not to waste your time with this movie. Clear? Allow me to elucidate. If you have ever watched a film of this ilk and exclaimed afterwards, “Well that was stupid!” then do NOT watch ZOMBEAVERS. If, however, you can love and appreciate a movie primarily BECAUSE it is stupid, because it realizes it is stupid and celebrates that stupidity, and in the so-doing achieves and betrays its actual insidious intelligence—in other words, if you are in on the joke—this delectable delight is as good as it gets.
Outrageously gory, unabashedly cheesy, yet subtly self-aware and possessing production values high enough to keep it from being another, say, THE GROUNDSKEEPER, ZOMBEAVERS is the best movie of its kind since BLACK SHEEP. It had me laughing till I was wiping away tears. The premise alone is sufficient to elicit a chuckle. They’re beavers. Dead beavers. And then they become ZOMBIES. I mean, college kids in a cabin in the woods, menaced by zombie beavers? If that doesn’t sound like a flick you gotta see, I just don’t know if we can be friends anymore.
