Zombeavers

7/10 - as a knowingly B-movie, this wasn't too bad, really. Needed more comedy, perhaps, but that's a tricky mix. Awesome end title song.

There's not much to say about this one other than that it delivers on the promise of its title. I enjoyed it quite a bit, the zombie beavers are cute and funny and it does the routine of teens being slaughtered in a cabin in the woods to decent and often amusing effect. Not entirely predictable in its order of deaths either and a great theme song in the credits. This was a good choice for the late-night Thursday film. 5/10

Fun and as mentioned with the order of deaths not always predictable. Seen better, seen worse comedy horrors. Note: the cast / crew details in the programme were wrong, presumably copied in from You're Next?! 7 / 10
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

Knowingly idiotic and likeable enough. Hands down it won the B-movie battle with the dire Wolfcop.

Stupid, but no more or less than expected. Animatronic zombeavers instead of crappy CGI so kudos for that. 6/10

As soon as I saw the first Zombeaver I found I couldn't shake the thought that it should have been called 'Caddyshock'. Much fun.

3rd films seen at FrightFest 2014 and was still in the Top 5 by the end of the festival.

That whack-a-mole scene was inspired.

Think they wrung every possibly gag and effect they could out of the film title, including the post-credits scene.

The end theme still gets into my head to this day and probably always will.

Very enjoyable and will probably purchase.
