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 »
(at around 37 mins) The girl with the yellow swimsuit stabs the beaver in the head. Several seconds later, when the band is examining this beaver, the knife has moved - now, it's not in the beaver's head, but in his back. See more »
[during the outtakes]
I had a job for a minute as one of those sign spinners.
Like in one of those sandwich places?
Yeah, but I plugged it in, put some Christmas lights in it, tried to get paid extra... strangled my penis.
Strangled your penis? How does that happen?
You can strangle your penis.
Were you doing that flip behind your back and came up around your taint?
My penis was in a rear, naked choke.
What kind of workman's comp do you get for that?
You just get fired...

At the end of the credits, in regards to animal cruelty, the statement reads as follows: "No animals were harmed in the making of this film, although the bear did receive a purple nurple (not our fault, he started it.)" See more »
Spoof movies are becoming a lost art. Lately we've been force-fed crap like Scary Movie 5, the Haunted House movies, and even more deplorable knock-offs like Paranormal Whacktivity. Yeah, that exists. The problem with these movies is that for every one joke that hits, there are a hundred that miss. Why? Because they're doing the same sh*t over and over again. There are only so many paranormal jokes you can make before they get old.
However, schlocky old-school B- monster movies are an untapped resource in the art of spoof. Sharknado and Piranha 3D tried their best, and they did provide a few laughs, but no matter how many flying sharks or naked big-breasted swimmers you have in your movie, it doesn't help if the movie itself isn't all that funny. While Zombeavers doesn't have any flying sharks, it has virtually everything else you could possibly want in a so-bad-it's-good movie and then some.
I'll sum it up as quickly as possible. Zombeavers is to horror movies as Naked Gun is to police dramas. It's insane, it's over-the-top, hilariously gratuitous, vehemently stupid, gloriously horrendous, and infectiously entertaining. The acting is perfect for this kind of movie, the writing is surprisingly clever, and the cameos are brilliant. Bill Burr and John Mayer: sounds like a weird combo but who knew John Mayer was freakin' hilarious? I know I didn't until I saw Zombeavers.
To sum up, if you like to laugh, you are doing yourself a disservice by not watching Zombeavers. It's the quintessential horror-spoof stoner-comedy that you can watch with friends and have a blast. As far as creature satires go, Zombeavers puts Sharknado and Piranha 3D to shame.
...quite possibly the most ridiculous sentence in the history of language, which is only a testament to Zombeavers' utter greatness.
