Zombie movies are a dime of dozen these days. It seems like every year there are multiple zombie-type movies either hitting the big screen or smaller movies going straight to video. So it’s safe to say that everyone is either over them or always looking for a fun and fresh take on the genre. That leads me to Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. When I first heard of this I thought it was going to be a fun zombie thriller movie that fits the build for the younger generation of kids, especially with its Halloween release date. But holy s**t was I wrong and I couldn’t be anymore happier about how wrong I was.
Coming from Paramount Pictures, the official red band trailer has been released for the story of a couple of Boy Scouts and Cocktail Waitress going on an adventure to save their town from a zombie apocalypse. Starring Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan and Sarah Dumont, watch the hilariously badass red band trailer below.
I can’t express how much I enjoyed, scratch that, loved this trailer. As I said above, I was kind of expecting this to almost be a throwaway kids movie, but it definitely isn’t. I loved every single moment of it, from beginning to end. It’s such a cool idea that I’m shocked it hasn’t been touched yet. Going along this journey with three boy scouts is cool in itself, but then you throw in a downright beautiful, and badass, cocktail waitress and it’s game over, it becomes even more intriguing.
One thing that really stood out though was how graphic it was. I was not expecting to see this kind of amount of blood or heads blowing up or zombie boobs, and that’s what makes it so exciting! Following watching the trailer I looked up the rating and it got a R-rating and that only gets me that much more excited for it. It means they aren’t holding back on this one which is exactly what I want to see. I’m completely buying Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse right now and it will definitely be the movie I go check out Halloween weekend.
Three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one badass cocktail waitress to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they’ll fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead.
Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse hits theaters on October 30th, 2015. Directed by Christopher Landon starring Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan, Sarah Dumont, Halston Sage, and David Koechner.
