Movie Storyline(From IMBd): When a strange virus quickly spreads through a safari park and turns all the zoo animals undead, those left in the park must stop the creatures before they escape and zombify the whole city.


Zoombies was just recently released on Netflix. One night while watching the Talking Dead, Chris Hardwick had mentioned something about the movie and I was intrugied. I couldn’t find it when it was mentioned, but just came across it on Netflix. I even convinced my parents to watch it with me.

If you know anything about me, you know that I love horror movies…even the cheap ones that everyone hates. Which seems to be the case with this movie as well. There is a lot of hate geared towards it because in the sense of horror…its ‘horror’ible. The special effects are not that great, the acting is just… sad, and there is nothing believable about it.

The best part is where the little girl kicks the crap out of a few crazy Koalas.

Now if you look at this in a comedy sense, it was genius. The first part of the hilarity begins with the bus of college students and their bad attitudes about their internships. The second would be when everyone goes looking for the doctor and opens the door when he is obviously telling them to leave the door closed.

Again, the best part is when the little girl kicks the crap out of the rabid Koalas.

The whole movie is predictable, hilarious, and if you really think about infected zoo animals out to kill all humans, it can be a little scary. Just think about it.

Over all though, I think this would be a great movie to sit around with friends and watch. You know, you and your friends are the kind of people that like to sit around and poke fun at all the things wrong with a movie. Seriously, I would suggest this for a movie night with my friends. It’s okay to sit and watch a horrible horror movie with friends, it keeps things light and fun.

What I loved: Do I really need to cover this again? The little girl killing zombie Koalas. Also, it gave me a good laugh.

What I hated: There was one character that I could not stand and I wanted her to be the first to die, but she survived way to long! The ending sucked as well. **Spoiler** Only 4 people make it out, but in no way did those 4 people destroy all the zombie animals. So there is a zoo full of rabid animals that really no one has the power to control. In my opinion the movie should have ended with a “A year later” prompt and all humans are dead and the animals have taken over the planet. It’s the only way to end a movie like this.

Another thing that I hated about this movie is that the monkeys that started spreading the virus only had to get close to the other animals to spread it. They didn’t have to bite them…just breath the same air. Which means the virus should have spread through the zoo much quicker. Just because they blow up the bird aviary that means the virus can’t spread? What about the animals that come up to the fence?
