Opening Today: “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”

Considering how furious the world’s geek viewership was with the dispatching of one of the characters on this past weeks “The Walking Dead”, I figured that this film will offer up some much needed levity and how could it not with a title like “Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse”. This horror comedy opens today in theaters everywhere. Check out the poster, premise and cast and then we can discuss.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I really enjoyed “Zombieland” when it was released a few years ago and this films trailer really reminded me of some of the fun that was to be found in their fleeing from the zombie hordes. With “The Walking Dead” and now “Fear The Walking Dead” being so super grim and serious, why not have a few laughs as humanity watches its last remnants get chomped away. Personally speaking I don’t think that I will be seeing this in the actual theaters since it is Halloween week and I’ve much to do but I wonder what you folks think about this one and will you see it. Let me know in the comments below and know that you can learn more about the film via its Wikipedia entry below. Just don’t read that link if you plan on seeing this in the movies right away. It tends to feature tons of spoilers, just like ones Facebook does immediately after a program ends. “Wow I cannot believe that ***** is gone”. Sorry you are not getting it from me 🙂
