Zombeavers Makes You Want To Schedule A Safety Orgy

fb share tweet share

ZombeaversIf you buy a ticket to a movie called Zombeavers, odds are you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. At least you should, if you don’t, and you complain about it later, you only have yourself to blame. There is a good litmus test, however. Read the title out loud, and if you giggle, this is a movie for you; if not, you should probably sit this one out. And if you fall into the first category, I am pleased to report that Zombeavers is as much of a blast as you could hope for.

Director Jordan Rubin’s homage to schlocky, low-budget 1980s horror is tailor made for an endless run of late night screenings. Full of gore, crude and absurd humor, gratuitous nudity, and, most importantly, swarms of undead beavers, this really does everything you want out a movie like this, and is light years ahead of churned out crap like Sharknado. As ridiculous as it is, you can tell the filmmakers actually put in a great deal of thought and effort. If you’re fan of movies like Piranha 3D then this is a movie for you. If nothing else, you’ll want to schedule a “safety orgy” with five of your closest friends ASAP.

Zombeavers Shoots For Oscar Votes With Self-Mocking Parody Posters

Zombeavers-Awards-HerThe Academy Awards are airing Sunday night, and sci-fi is making a fine showing with both Her and Gravity getting a slew of nominations in a variety of categories. And while all of the nominees are locked down and can’t be changed — except when it’s found out that financial lobbying went into it, as was the case with a Best Song nominee — producers Armory Films and BenderSpink are running an extremely early “For Your Consideration” campaign to get the upcoming horror comedy Zombeavers on the minds of 2015’s Oscar voters. Not as many “death by tail paddling” threats as I would have liked, but these posters are spectacular.

Zombeavers Stills Give You Something To Bite Down On

zombeaversIf you’ve gotten completely sick of films and TV shows about zombies, it’s an understandable feeling. The zeitgeist has really taken to the undead and brainless creatures in a way that…OH WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? Oh, never mind. It’s just a mostly harmless beaver smiling at me. So as I was saying, the pop culture stratosphere is completely…HOLY SHIT, THAT BEAVER IS COVERED IN BLOOD AND CURRENTLY BITING ME! This must be one of those Zombeavers we’ve been hearing about so much recently. I’ll be sure and find this little guy a good home as soon as…I’M BLEEDING OUT!

Zombeavers director Jordan Rubin met up with Entertainment Weekly to reveal a few set photos to the world, and to give some insight as to how he and co-screenwriters Al and Jon Kaplan arrived at such a silly premise. (Albeit one that I still would never want to find myself in the middle of.) I don’t do well with animals whose tails pack more of a punch than my own fists. Plus, I’m not big on dying outdoors.

Zombies Plus Beavers Equals This Zombeavers Trailer

fb share tweet share

Because your Saturday afternoon isn’t nearly ridiculous enough right now, we give you the new trailer for the upcoming horror film Zombeavers. Yes, you read that name right. And if you’re wondering if this movie has anything to do with beavers that are also zombies, then you are correct again, because that is exactly what is going on here.

With a name like Zombeavers, you know right away that this isn’t going to be your average, straight up scary movie, but this official trailer looks a little less tongue in cheek that you might expect. Somehow that seriousness makes it even funnier, and also helps you overlook the abundance of double-entendre beaver jokes. Then again, if you actually sit down to watch this movie—which make no mistake we will as soon as we have the opportunity—you’re probably into that sort of blue language and sense of humor.

Zombeavers: Micro-Budget Horror-Comedy Chomps Down On Hollywood

zombeaver

Pacific Rim. The Lone Ranger. After Earth. White House Down. This is but a handful of this year’s examples that prove the big-budget romps Hollywood clings to so dearly are no longer automatic moneymakers. But films like The Purge and Paranormal Activity were made for peanuts and have raked in millions in pure profit. This is the mindset guiding the acquisition of former stand-up comedian Jordan Rubin’s Zombeavers, a comedy/horror that sounds more like a film from The Asylum than anything Hollywood would touch with a 10-foot log…now, a nine-foot log. Dammit, you beavers!

To be clear, this is a celebration of successful production companies feeling comfortable getting behind original projects, rather than us championing a movie about zombified beavers. Not that we’re against that. (It’s got more appeal than Sharknado, anyway.) Based on a concept trailer, Rubin managed to sell his pitch to producers like Cabin Fever‘s Evan Astrowsky, as well as JC Spink and Chris Bender, the guys who had a hand in the successes of such films as The Ring, The Hangover, and the upcoming comedy We’re the Millers, which hits theaters on Wednesday.
