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: [seeing Scout Leader Rogers, now a zombie, on the road] That's Scout Leader Rogers!
Carter: He looks like shit!
Augie: I set him on fire.

If you like movies like Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and Cooties you will love this one as well. A movie you can easily watch over and over
6 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Yep, zombie." Ben (Sheridan) and Carter (Miller) are about to graduate high school and are ready to leave the scouts. When they decide to skip their final camp out and go to a senior party instead they think they are in for the night of their lives. What they find when they head back to town is something neither of them could have imagined. It is now up to them to save the town from zombies. This movie is just a ridiculous and fun as it sounds. The movie is mindless but entertaining. That is what makes this one so fun to watch. Gory, comedy, a pretty funny idea and great timing make this one of the better horror comedies to come out in a while. There really isn't a whole lot to say about this movie other than if you are renting this for your teenager I would preview it first. Overall, if you like movies like Tucker and Dale vs. Evil and Cooties you will love this one as well. A movie you can easily watch over and over. I give this a B+.
