Zombeavers | 50 B Movies To See Before You Die

This week on the B movie docket is Zombeavers.

B movies are the glue stuck in between all the other genres, oftentimes refusing to conform to any particular genre presets. Some but not all of the hallmarks of a B movie include scripts that read like they were written by a room full of eighth-graders, poor visual effects, cringe-inducing dialogue, low budget production design, and zany plot contrivances. You’re aware of the hallmarks, right? B-movies often reek of amateur flair. Thought you were about to watch a great white shark hunted in dramatic fashion like only Steven Spielberg can deliver? Nope, this is Sharknado.

Why do we love B movies? I think B movies are comforting. You know what you’re about to watch is bad. If you’re fortunate it may be so bad that it’s good. You’ll often scratch your head trying to work out the plot. Out of the many good films you’ve seen, I bet you can talk with more vigor about the worst ones you’ve seen. They’re unforgettable. There’s something comforting about that I think. Besides they’ve been around just as long as the movie industry.

Believe it or not, chances are there’s a B movie for you. So I compiled a list of 50 B movies you must see before you die. No decade is off-limits. No rating is too taboo. For the next 49 weeks, I will introduce and recommend a B movie for your viewing pleasure. Yes, these are exciting times indeed my fanatical friends.

WEEK 16 – Zombeavers

As you may well know B movies are great for mish-mashing scary things to make even more scarier things. For example, sharks are scary right? So are tornadoes. Thank the Gods of B movies for the awesome Sharknando. This weeks B movie does something amazing. Not only do we get those scary little beavers. We also get zombies. The result is Zombeavers. Sounds ridiculous, right? But what if I told you the beginning and end sequences feature comedian Bill Burr? Would you watch Zombeavers?

I am telling you today that you should. If you have never pondered what would happen genetically when you blend zombies and beavers then you will now. Things like would I turn into a human zombie or a beaver zombie if I were bit by a zombeaver will populate your brain. Thankfully, we find out what happens in the film. Sadly, I will not spoil it here.

The setup is simple. A trio of young women embark on a summer trip that comes with a lakeside view. There is a thing about having easy access to a lake in the hot summer. You must stay vigilant and on the lookout for beavers. Especially these beavers because they have become radioactive bloodthirsty little zombeavers.

Zombeavers is great because it is so straight forward and purely simple. You know what happens after they get comfy on vacation. You have seen it a thousand times in other movies. But you have never seen it featuring zombeavers. The filmmakers were charming enough to include a zombear. The cross-species zombie team ups are worth a watch alone.
