October Horror Movie Challenge - Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015)

Synopsis: Three scouts and a cocktail waitress teams up to save their town from a zombie outbreak.

The Good: The cast was genuinely likable. I laughed a lot at this movie. I love David Koechner and Blake Anderson is perfect at the beginning of the movie. 

The Bad: I would say the humor of this flick is targeted at males 14-22. It's a lot of lowbrow sexual humor. Also, I think at this point I've seen enough zombie strippers for one life time.

Final Thoughts: It's not Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland, but this is a solid zombedy.
