Franny and Zoe wake up one morning ready to go on a high school field trip. Their plans quickly change when Zoe drinks contaminated water and his head becomes a huge pustule. When Franny comes to aid him, Zoe turns her into a monsterous "zithead." Soon the two of them set off on a bizarre journey, mutating other teenagers, encountering strange suburbanites, and developing a very unusual craving for chocolate. The army starts a statewide manhunt for the infected adolecents as they struggle to remain concious, try to figure out what's happened to them, and draw nearer to a terrifying fate.

What a waste of time
17 August 2006 | by wtwlbySee all my reviews

Wait a second. Who is it that likes this movie? I rented it for a movie night with friends because I was intrigued by the teens shooting lazers out of their eyes in the picture. I also liked the description of the zitheads terrorizing the area. There were no lazer beams anywhere. And the teens didn't terrorize anyone, they more or less bumbled around like they were lost with no plan. The acting was horrific and I have seen second grade productions that had better acting in them. The plot was weird and hard to follow because it didn't make coherent sense. Characters were not developed, there were only 7 or so zitheads when it said that they turn many into zitheads (7 is not many. An entire high school would have been many) Oh, and they didn't even try to make-up over their skull caps, so it was ridiculously obvious that it was fake. In general, the movie was lame. So, save your money and time and get a decent movie.
