This is no masterpiece. Do NOT expect an "A" horror movie. But it IS a fairly well done humorous, campy movie. Admittedly, the bar was low for me when I rented this, but I laughed enough that I bought the BluRay. A little bit of a hidden gem.
To be fair, when I first saw the poster for Zombeavers, I didn't think it was going to be something worth sitting through. I watch a lot of schlock, and some of the modern examples just try to hard or don't try at all. Zombeavers, on the other hand, strikes the perfect balance between "self aware" and "B-movie fun" with its off-kilter sense of humor, puppet monsters, and gratuitous nudity. It's not going to be for everybody, but if you like a creature feature on a modest budget that makes you laugh intentionally (and unintentionally), this is absolutely worth your time.
Zombeavers is more of a comedy that a horror film. Yes, there are zombie beavers. They're bad CGI and Muppet-looking puppets. There are pretty girls, one of whom likes to walk around without clothes, and college dudes and rustic folks. And guest stars! Look for singer John Mayer in his first film role. And stay for the Sinatra-style Zombeavers song over the end credits.
