For the longest time I scrolled by this movie on Netflix and just laughed at the name.  Most of time movies whose whole premise is based on a pun, are not for me.  The other night I decided to give Zombeavers a try, and I'm glad I did.

Zombeavers is a genuinely fun horror movie that takes itself seriously.  Before seeing it I envisioned this a horor comedy or parody of monster animal movies.  Zombeavers however is quite the opposite. While the idea is of course silly, it's played straight.

The movie very much reminds of a 1980's horror movie.  It's filled with gratuitous sex, nudity and over the top violence.  
I have opened my door to worse
A great part of the reason I enjoyed this movie (other than the gratuitous nudity) was the effects.  The creatures are all done practically, and this really adds to the charm of the movie.

The actors all do a great of selling you on the Zombeavers being viscous monsters.   There are some pretty good twists later in the movie, I won't spoil them but they're amazing.

If you're looking for a fun movie, that takes you back to the 80's then Zombeavers is for you.
