Review Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015)


#ScoutsGuideToTheZombieApocalypse (2015): 7/10

Scouts Guide stars Tye Sheridan (‘Ready Player One’), Logan Miller (‘Love, Simon’) and newcomer Joey Morgan as three long-time school friends who are also part of a scouts club, a club two of the friends wish to distance themselves from in order to appeal to the opposite sex. It’s a plot idea that is very relatable to any school kid of a similar age, or anyone who has been through school, complete with those awkward conversations with the girls you really desire the most.

The opening scene of the film really sets the tone for the film, with a really quite hilarious rendition of ‘Black Widow’ by the school janitor, played by Blake Anderson (‘Game Over, Man’). In fact, the film has a spring in its step throughout, and doesn’t get bogged down in intricate details of where the zombie virus originated from or how it has made its way into a local laboratory. It just gets stuck in with some good old fashioned fun. Think ‘Superbad’ meets ‘Shaun Of The Dead’.

All three of the friends bring something to the table, with the chemistry working well as a collective unit; they really feel like friends. A side story develops involving one of the gang looking to muster up the courage to speak to a girl he’s liked for some time. Unfortunately on this occasion, that girl is also his friend’s sister! Much like ‘Shaun Of The Dead’, Scouts Guide also boasts a bangin’ soundtrack. Add some outrageous tongue-in-cheek guts and gore to boot, and you’ve got yourself a very entertaining zombie flick with a slight twist on previous efforts.
