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.

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

Confidently treading a well trod path
28 January 2016 | by thekarmicnomadSee all my reviews

This is a typical boy's comedy-horror romp. Expect nob gags, cheesy sound tracks, high-fives, innuendos and tall women in tight tops.

I have seen a few of these in my time so I am a little fatigued and jaded with the genre. But as they go this is a pretty good one.

There is a period of build up where the characters are given a bit of depth. The production, acting and effects are all pretty good. The plot is OK but pretty much irrelevant.

There is no real horror, no real nudity (except a few jiggling zombie boobs), and no real violence. This is all pretty tame, good natured fun.

It makes me very sad to admit perhaps I have just grown out of this type of thing (I am outside the target demographic for sure)

This could be a pretty solid watch for a younger audience who is new to the genre.
