ZOMBEAVERS is an action-packed horror/comedy in which a group of college kids staying at a riverside cabin are menaced by a swarm of deadly zombie beavers. A weekend of sex and debauchery soon turns gruesome as the beavers close in on the kids. Riding the line between scary, sexy and funny, the kids are soon fighting for their lives in a desperate attempt to fend off the hoard of beavers that attack them in and around their cabin.Written by
One character mentions the Giardia lamblia parasite, which causes diarrhea and sometimes fever. Giardia was, during the 1970ies, thought to be associated with beavers ("beaver fever"), but no connection with a specific animal has ever been shown. Between infecting hosts - often horses, cows and sheep - Giardia lives for several months in streams, lakes and water pools. See more »

I had waited for this movie for quite awhile and was thrilled and excited to Watch it, especially after having seen the trailer.
The story in "Zombeavers" is fairly generic as horror movies go: a group of young people go to a remote lake for some partying and things go awry. And what was supposed to be fun and games becomes a matter of life and death.
But thrown in a bunch of zombie beavers and things are turned up a notch. These zombie beavers were somewhat fake, visually, but also hilarious, which just added to the enjoyment of the movie.
Sure, the movie was predictable in every aspect, but the combination of horror and comedy worked well and I was quite entertained by this movie.
The acting in the movie was good, although I can't really claim to be overly familiar with the cast as such, aside from Rex Linn. That being said, I will go on to saying that the people did perform well enough in "Zombeavers", which was a nice thing, as it did elevate the movie experience.
And the aspect of having zombie beavers did bring about a fresh of breath air to the zombie genre. I am sure that many will not find it enjoyable, but I did, and it entertained me quite well. I think it is good when the movie-makers manage to pull off new takes on the zombie genre, especially when it works as well as it did in "Zombeavers".
If you enjoy zombie comedies such as "Dead Alive" or "Shaun of the Dead" then you will also like "Zombeavers".
