The Pulp Fiction of horror spoofs
24 May 2015 | by lnvictaSee all my reviews

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.
