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

I Could Be Drunk or Something
13 December 2015 | by Mek TorresSee all my reviews

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse lacks any sort of novelty and it doesn't quite flourish its ultimate conceit. But isn't this the most enjoyable zombie movie I've seen in a while? There hasn't been much zombie movie in a while that's as brutal and deliciously violent as this one. And zombie cats! Why not? Maybe it's just my hangover from last Halloween. Either way, it's somewhat like a relic from the 80's, specifically from its tropes to its aesthetics (albeit some lens flares and digital blood.) It won't change your life or anything, but if you seek for some dumb adventurous schlock (with some teen comedy vulgarity,) then this movie knows how to deliver that kind of pleasure.
