A Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocolypse: Review


So recently, I finally got down to watching a film that I had long wanted to see, Scouts Guide To the Zombie Apocolypse. And while I won’t lie and say that the cute blonde on the front cover didn’t play any part in my intrigue of this film, I am self confessed Zombie Apocolypse nerd and a big fan of shows like The Walking Dead and movies like Dawn of the Dead, Resident Evil, Shaun of the Dead and World War Z. So I was pretty excited even if I was unsure what to expect. 

The plot:

Three boyhood friends who are scout members get stuck in the middle of a zombie Apocolypse. Pretty simple right?  The three boys, Ben, Carter and Augie have been Scouts pretty much throughout their childhood. And while Augie is a die hard scout aficionado, Carter wants out while Ben is somewhere in between; especially Ben wouldn’t mind out but he doesn’t want to hurt Augie’s feelings.  This comes to a head when a big party from some older kids is happening on the same night that Augie is about to get an important badge and Ben is torn between hanging out with some cute girls and sticking by his friend. Then a zombie Apocolypse happens. All they have is each other to battle the storm until they meet a gorgeous bartender called Denise and comedy ensues as the four of them battle the undead. 

Thoughts:

The film, while pretty basic is pretty entertaining. The cast is pretty on point and there are quite a few laughs out there throughout the running time. And while this film might not be as laugh out loud funny as say Shaun of the Dead, the events of the night are quite comical, added to by some great cameos from David Koechner and Cloris Leachman. 


This movie gives you plenty including some rather cringeworthy moments, numerous zombie selfies as well as zombie cats. Yes, you heard me. ZOMBIE CATS. 

Scouts Guide To A Zombie Apocolypse is a fun film that will keep you amused throughout its running time and will give you some memorable moments to joke with friends about. I’m giving this one a B-.
