(This review may contain spoilers).
I’ve watched a lot of comedy movies by now, but I thought this one looked like it might be quite amusing. While there were some really disturbing scenes in this movie, there were some kind of sweet moments as well.
I thought there was good use made of atmospheric lighting in this movie. There were some really gory scenes in this movie… and also one that was especially cringeworthy and really… disgusting to watch.
It was an interesting twist to have the main characters be scouts and it was good to see bits and pieces of their lives before everything. Despite being a comedy movie, I did like the fact that the friendship between the three main characters played an important part.
While quite a few of the amusing scenes were shown in the trailer, I did think there were quite a few in the movie itself. One interesting aspect was that the zombies seemed to have a fraction of intelligence left… for instance, one zombie being on a mobility scooter; and a trampoline being used by the zombies. It was also quite creepy to see that the virus crossed over species… especially when it came to the cat/s.
I did like the use of the phone to take selfies and the first scene did a good job of setting the tone for the rest of the movie. While there were a lot of unanswered questions, the movie was entertaining to watch. I would have liked to see some of the sideplots run with, especially with the Britney Spears song.
I did find the movie drew me in and kept me focused throughout. The characters were interesting and had some more depth to them and it was good to see there was inner conflict as well.
After the first set of credits, there is an extra scene that, while not necessary to watch, is a final bit of humour. Most of the humour is sexual and violent in nature. While I did find the movie entertaining, I don’t think I’ll be watching it again.
