Misfit teens Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller and Joey Morgan are caught up in a zombie outbreak in this knowingly tongue-in-cheek horror comedy.

The title is a tip off as to what’s in store, with the film looking to deliver larky irreverence as well as gory splatter. It mostly succeeds, though there are times when the teens, who put their disdained scouting skills to good use to battle the undead, does rather overdo the gross-out gags. Like its horny adolescent heroes, it also spends a little too much time ogling naked zombie flesh.

But if you don’t mind the puerility you will find the laughs and scares coming thick and fast.
