Storyline

A reckless janitor accidentally releases a zombie from a laboratory of research. Meanwhile, the teenagers scouts Ben Goudy and Carter Grant decide to camp for the last time since they are too old to be scouts. The problem is that they do not want to harm the feelings of their friend Augie Foster and the Scout Leader Rogers. They have a flat tire after hitting a deer on the road and Carter's sister Kendall Grant, her boyfriend and her friend Chloe stop their Jeep to see whether they need a ride. They invite Ben and Carter to go to a party in the night. The two scouts leave the camping during the night to go to the party. When they drive through the town, they do not see a living soul and they decide to visit a night-club since the bouncer is not at the door. They discover that people have turned into zombies and they team-up with Ben's recent acquaintance Denise Russo, who is bartender in the nightclub, and Augie that was left alone at the camp and came to the town. Soon they discover ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

(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 »

Quotes

Ben: Guys, let's go. We gotta get to the party
Augie: Ben, this is a suicide mission.
Ben: Guys, they're gonna bomb this whole town in less than two hours.
Carter: What if Denise reaches the military in time?
Ben: And what if she doesn't, Carter? Then what? Who's gonna save them? The police? They're gone. The military? They're not coming, either. Guys we're the last line of defense. And so what? Maybe we look like dorks in these uniforms. And maybe we're a big joke to everyone at school. But tonight, we're gonna show them ...

Surprisingly Good
11 December 2015 | by (Hong Kong) – 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.
