Don’t Text and Drive: An SML Review of “Zombeavers”

Zombeavers-PosterWhat are your favorite horror tropes?

Hapless hazardous waste drivers who don’t know how to text and drive?

College kids taking a long weekend at some cousin’s cabin on a lake?

Mostly naked sorority girls sunning on the docks and making casual sexual passes at each other?

80s-style music and graphics crawling across the intro credits and a Bob Goulet-style theme song during the closing credits?

Monster puns mixed with sexual euphemisms that equal dangerous attack animals?

Well, then, Zombeavers is for you.

Jenn’s boyfriend, Sam, was caught on Instagram making out with another girl. So, Mary and Zoe took her for a girls’ weekend at a cabin four hours away from campus. But Zoe invited the guys out to the cabin, as well. Surprise! (Awkward…)

zombeavers-trailerThe group’s fun-in-the-sun weekend takes a turn for the worse, though, when one of the guys loses a foot in the water. A loose hazardous waste container was lodged in a beaver dam and invected all the semi-aquatic nocturnal rodents in the area. Now the beavers are out for sweet, sweet college blood.

And, it turns out, boarding your house isn’t particularly effective against creatures who can chew through phone poles to knock you out.

Zombeavers is nothing particularly original, but is wholly entertaining. From the infected growing beaver teeth and tails to the non-infected playing wack-a-beaver as the critters come up from the floorboards, you’ll develop a new fear (or appreciation) for beavers.

Also, Pro Tip: Stay through the credits. In addition to learning a great new karaoke song, there’s a special bonus scene at the end.

Check out the film and let us know what you thought. Watch Zombeavers on Amazon Instant Video tonight.
