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. »

John Lucking on the business of bad movies…
Imagine a clown takes centre stage at the circus, imagine he falls on a banana peel, imagine the audience laughs, imagine the audience mocking his portrayal of King Lear.
With the release of Sharknado 2: The Second One the Internet has begun its now regular attempt to recreate the furore and virality of Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 unintentional masterpiece The Room. It’s almost mandatory to dissect any film dubbed ‘so-bad-it’s-good’, repackage it as brief clips, montages or quotes and then send these out into the dark of the Internet where they can act as a beacon to similar-minded people. Entire communities will then form around the mocking of a single film, and it’s up to that same community how long the film remains in the public consciousness; GIFs, images, parodies, live recreations, midnight screenings, DVD re-releases, live readings, dedicated websites, »

Perhaps predictably, Syfy has green-lit a third Sharknado movie, according to Adweek. The sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, premieres in July, but the low-budget schlocktaculars more or less spawn themselves. For some reason, Sharknado garnered a huge amount of attention last summer, even though it's ludicrous plot, garbagetown production values, and C-list cast define just about every Syfy movie. Where's the threequel for Mansquito? Or Dinocroc vs. Supergator? Dog Soldiers? Mongolian Death Worm? Frankenfish? Flu Bird Horror? Those are all real, and just as terrible as Sharknado. »

If you've looking for a movie that has one character shouting "That is exactly what the beavers would want!" at another, you're in so much luck. Today brings you the trailer for... Zombeavers. Click on the YouTubes for a closer look at the gnashery nastiness. Billed as this year's Sharknado, the so-bad-we-thought-it-might-be-good-but-it-was-actually-just-really-bad Z-movie, Zombeavers is the spoofy handiwork of director Jordan Rubin, a Carson Daly Show alumnus, and screenwriters Al and Jon Kaplan. A cursory glance at their CVs finds the amazing-sounding Piranhaconda and Dinocroc Vs. Supergator, and this one extends the silliness to a cabin filled with randy students and a dam filled with hell rodents.No word on a likely UK release date for this one but it has a tagline - 'You'll all be damned' - that alone makes it worthy of the widest possible release. »
