Soon they discover ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

(at around 37 mins) As they leave the strip club, Carter's face is covered in blood and he is freaking out about washing his face. He gets a rag and in the next shot -one second later, his face looks washed brand spanking clean. That couldn't have happened if all he did was wipe with the rag he picked up. See more »


Carter: [Freaking out after being attacked by zombie, his face covered in blood] Fuck!
Denise: Calm the fuck down!
Ben: Calm down? Are you crazy? We almost just got killed in there!
Denise: [Points to Ben's car] Is that your ride?
Ben: Can you please just tell us what the hell is going on?
Carter: Anyone? I really need to wash off my face right now!
Denise: [Looks back at Ben] Keys, now!
Ben: Not until you tell us what's happening.
Carter: A wet nap! Anyone got a wet nap?
[Pulls a bandana from pocket and uses that]

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 »

I laughed my ass off while watching this movie. I had no expectations to what I was about to experience and I'm so glad because I did enjoy it. The last crazy zombie movie I watched was 'Cooties' which is truly an off-the-wall delight and 'Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse' is right up there with it. Good show!

The synopsis states three scouts attempt to save their town from a zombie outbreak. But that's really not the plot. Their motive is to save their fellow classmates and one of the scouts sister at a rave party to which the three scouts were not invited. The scouts were given an erroneous address and they must find the real address before the zombie get to the rave first. What they go through to get the address is a laugh riot of grotesque zombie horror that is funny and goofy and perfectly timed.

Casting, acting, dialog are spot on with the spirit of the movie! Light hearted crazy zombie fun done to perfection!
