On the eve of their last camp-out three scouts stumble upon a zombie outbreak and decides to test whether the ‘always prepared’-motto is true.

Scouts Guide is one of those movies which you suddenly fall over by accident and rejoice in your luck after watching it. Because this is good! A perfect mixture of horror and comedy, it gives you the, in these types of movies, inevitable boobs and sex but only where it fits the story and never so it seems too in your face. Sheridan (Ready Player One, 2018), Miller (Escape Room, 2019) and Morgan (Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, 2018) are charming leads, stereotypes but in likable versions. There is tensions between them due to two of them wanting out of the Scout troop but they work well together. There are several laugh-out-loud moments, a high point being their time in the house of Miss Fielder played by the amazing Leachman (Spanglish, 2004) but this will keep you entertained from beginning to end. One of the best zombie comedies of recent times, this is biting the heals of Zombieland (2009) and Shaun of the Dead (2004) and deserves an audience!

 

 

 

 

Moviegeek info:

The use of a trampoline to escape the Zombies is a reference to the classic Super Nintendo game “Zombies Ate My Neighbors,” where the main characters use trampolines to jump from garden to garden.
