SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE [2015]

Paranormal Activity series writer/director Christopher Landon goes for the intentionally silly with yet another zombie-comedy, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.
Three dweeby scouts, in their high school sophomore year, have their close friendship put to the test when their sleepy little town is ravaged by a zombie virus that affects both humans, animals and crazy old cat ladies.
For a movie like this to really work it needs to be scary, original and most of all funny, however here it sort of falters in all those categories.  It's filled with the type of humor a teenage boy would gawk over, one-dimensional large breasted women and plenty of blood spilling all over the screen.  It's pretty bad but somewhat entertaining once the action gets going.   Leading man Tye Sheridan gives the film a bit more heart than the it deserves, while Cloris Leachman & David Koechner's characters are woefully underused because they supplied the biggest laughs.
