Six college friends plan a weekend of drinking, sex, and fun at a secluded cabin. The girls take their tops off (as they do), and they all head out for a swim in the nearby lake. Little do they know that their vacation is dammed, as they have just trespassed into the territory of toxic-waste-mutated beavers, undead creatures with a craving for raw flesh. That's right…zombeavers! When the trailer for Zombeavers appeared, it quickly became an Internet sensation, racking up millions of views in the first few days. But would this outrageous horror-comedy live up to its premise, or was it just another Sharknado-style gimmick? We're happy to report that these walking dead nocturnal rodents deliver the goods! Director Jordan Rubin presents more than just an admittedly silly concept, instead crafting a loving tribute to classic ’80s vidsploitation fare. With buckets of gore and practical effects all done by hand (no lazy CGI effects here), the film stays true to the genre without sacrificing an uproarious sense of humor, which arrives in the form of foul-mouthed one liners, a cameo from legendary stand-up Bill Burr, and just the right amount of beaver puns.
