Zombeavers (2014)

Written by: Al Kaplan, Jon Kaplan, Jordan Rubin

Directed by: Jordan Rubin

Cast: Rachel Melvin (Mary), Cortney Palm (Zoe), Lexi Atkins (Jenn), Hutch Dano (Sam), Jake Weary (Tommy), Peter Gilroy (Buck), Rex Linn (Smyth), Brent Briscoe (Winston), Phyllis Katz (Myrne), Bill Burr (Joseph), John Mayer (Luke), Robert R. Shafer (Trucker)

It’s so hard to tell nowadays what kind of film you are going to get by just looking at the solitary picture and the synopsis. I seldom ever rely on the number of stars that it has, because someone else’s trash just might be my treasure. Back in the video store days, there were absolutely no guarantees even by looking at the videocassette box, but I guess that I just had a false sense of security that I could make a more informed choice. I’m slowly letting go, and just going with straight up intuition.

Zombeavers Review

To prematurely write off Zombeavers would be an easy task based on the numerous trailers featuring zombified beaver puppets who growl angrily at the camera, as the footage suggests a watch that takes B-Movie stupidity to realms yet unexplored. Who needs a bunch of undead beavers thwapping their tails against the ground while they’re trying to gnaw through a group of drunken fratheads and their sorority babes? Pointless nudity, radiated beaver dams, filthy double entendres, goofy creature work – do horror fans really need to be subjected to such an untamed zombie/animal hybrid?!

Yeah – you’re f#cking right they do!

The same could have been said for movies like Gremlins, Child’s Play, or any other heavily puppeteered genre exploration that requires heavy special effects techniques and loads of imagination. Sure, we already know how those two famous examples turned out. Gremlins is a classic monster mash for

DVD Review – Zombeavers (2014)

Zombeavers, 2013.

Directed by Jordan Rubin.

Starring Cortney Palm, Rachel Melvin, Lexi Atkins, Hutch Dano, Jake Weary, Bill Burr and Rex Linn.

Synopsis:

A group of college kids staying at a riverside cabin are menaced by a swarm of deadly zombie beavers. A weekend of sex and debauchery soon turns gruesome as the beavers close in on the kids.

A lot was expected of Zombeavers at this year’s Frightfest, mainly because of its sufficiently hysterical title, which suggested a cult following similar to another recent horror-com, WolfCop, was on the horizon. And indeed aside from its outlandish name, the film certainly has many of the ingredients needed to be a breakout hit: an over-the-top scenario, special effects that looked the “good” type of tacky, teenagers in peril and a decent soundtrack are all checked and accounted for. But despite all the elements in place to make it so, it’s

Toronto After Dark 2014 – Movie Review: Zombeavers

For many horror fans, zombie movies have become too prevalent in the independent horror cinema landscape. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising to find out that the mere mention of the subgenre makes many cringe. For whatever reason, filmmakers working with a restricted budget seem to think that their best option is to try their hand at making a film that, by it’s very definition, usually requires some sort of elaborate special effects. Of course, there are exceptions to the rule. Last year’s zombie film, The Battery, did a great job on super-tight budget. But that is not the standard, so you can imagine how I felt when I heard that Zombeavers was going to be a real thing…

The movie, co-written and directed by Jordan Rubin, is a horror-comedy about a group of college students head to a lakeside house to party away Jenn’s (Lexi Atkins) boyfriend woes.

Stars: Chad Anderson, Lexi Atkins, Brent Briscoe, Bill Burr, Cortney Palm, Hutch Dano, Peter Gilroy, Rex Linn, Rachel Melvin | Written by Al Kaplan, Jon Kaplan | Directed by Jordan Rubin

Seriously. Do I have to lay out the plot of a film called Zombeavers? It features zombie beavers. What else do you need to know? Oh well, here goes: Three college friends decide to spend the weekend at a riverside cabin in the woods, man free, after one of the trio splits up with her boyfriend. However the boys see things differently and invite themselves on the trip in the hopes of having a debauched weekend filled with sex and booze. Little do the group know, they are right next door to a lodge of beavers who have been mutated, by an accidental toxic waste spill, into rabid zombeavers.

See, did I really need to explain that? Kids go woods. Kids get dead.

Zombeavers review - Tribeca Film Festival 2014

Zombeavers review - Tribeca Film Festival 2014
Director: Jordan Rubin; Screenwriter: Jordan Rubin, Jon Kaplan, Al Kaplan; Starring: Cortney Palm, Rachel Melvin, Hutch Dano, Jake Weary, Lexi Atkins, Peter Gilroy Running time: 85 mins

This is a movie about zombie beavers, and beaver zombies. What more, exactly, do you need to know? With Zombeavers, director Jordan Rubin and writers Al and Jon Kaplan have made an irreverent, low-budget spectacle in the tradition of horror comedies like Sharknado and Piranha 3D. The film features a mostly unknown cast, with a brief but funny cameo from a mustachioed John Mayer and leadwork from Cortney Palm, perhaps best known for her role in 2012's Sushi Girl.

Rubin and co use the the typical cabin in the woods model to set up their story - pragmatic Mary (Rachel Melvin), sex-crazed and potty mouthed Zoe (Palm), and a post-breakup depressed Jenn (Lexi Atkins) decide to go on a girls weekend in a country house by the lake.

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Zombeavers’

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Zombeavers’
If Sam Raimi and Jim Henson had dreamed up a movie together … well, it wouldn’t have looked very much like “Zombeavers,” though you can tell that’s the target director Jordan Rubin was vaguely aiming for with his well-meaning but wan, title-tells-all horror parody. An inspired idea in search of better gags and actors with even an iota of Bruce Campbell’s rubber-limbed elan, this debut feature for standup and sketch-comedy vet Rubin is not without flashes of ingenuity, but the one-joke premise wears thin even before the mercifully brief 76-minute running time is up. Still, the pic’s title alone will ensure a certain amount of attention on the midnight and genre circuits, if not any larger, “Sharnado”-sized penetration of the zeitgeist.

We begin on a rural stretch of Indiana highway, where a couple of doofus truck drivers transporting hazardous medical waste plow into a deer and
