News Bites: Zombeavers


Just when you thought zombie films had scraped the bottom of the barrel with Osombie, the trailer was revealed for Zombeavers. From the producers of Cabin Fever, The Ring, We’re The Millers, and American Pie, the film synopsis reads – “Three college girls go on a care-free vacation of drinking games, topless sunbathing, and sexual exploration. Their frolicking fun comes to an abrupt end when toxic zombie beavers try to EAT THEM”

This is Jordan Rubin’s first directorial role, with a script he wrote with Jon and Al Kaplin. Cortney Palm, Rachel Melvin and Hutch Dano star in the film. “This may very well be the most important film you will ever see about zombie beavers,” Rubin told DeadlineZombeavers is being presented to potential buyers at the Berlin Film Festival after generating a high level of social media buzz. In the spirit of cheesy B-Movies, the tagline is suitably silly – “You’ll all be dammed” 

The film really is indicative of the power of the internet. Uploaded to Youtube less than a week ago, the trailer has hit over a million views, as well as being featured in mainstream newspapers and magzines – a rarity for a low-budget horror movie. The unexpected success of films such as Sharknado and Sharktopus is probably responsible for the trend of animal mash ups, but Zombeavers is probably one of the most original offerings.
