Did You Know?


The animated credit sequence shows the main actors in an unusual order (considering the type of movie and status of the actors). While Tye Sheridan gets credited first, his three costars Logan Miller, Joey Morgan and Sarah Dumont get credited last. See more »


When the car hits the deer there is just a punctured tire and a crack in the windshield. In real life there would be extensive damage and the car would almost certainly be undriveable. See more »


Ben: [Augie puts a bomb on the floor] What is that?
Augie: It's a bomb.
Carter: What are you, the Taliban?

Crazy Credits

After the first set of end credits, a scene pans to Scout Master Rogers' severed head lying on the ground. A bird craps on his face and says "Come on!". His head turns to the audience and says "The End". See more »

Surprisingly Good
11 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

With no expectation at all for this film. Turned out it's so much better that just another silly class B zombie clone.

And it's not just particular part, but for overall writing, directing, shooting, lighting, acting, music, etc.

The opening gives me the tense and the acting of Janitor (Blake Anderson) is really great. Other male casts are alright, but could be better. I know they need to look "scouts" but come on, these are the guys saving the world :)

The acting of Sarah Dumont is so cool and tough, very nice. And I wish to see more Halston Sage (who wouldn't?) :p

Highly recommended if you haven't watch it yet.
