Zom­bies

come with sharp, pointy teeth here, cour­tesy of the most lethal ro­dents this side of Monty Python And The Holy Grail. Alas, the killer crit­ters are less con­vinc­ing than Python’s psy­cho bunny, and even they’re more be­liev­able than a cast so wooden they were al­ways des­tined to be beaver fod­der.

Mock schlock is clearly the agenda of this lazy at­tempt to out- kook Shark­nado, but Zombeavers isn’t funny enough to be a spoof nor scary enough to be a hor­ror. In­stead, it’s a cyn­i­cal ex­cuse for an un­pleas­ant bunch of col­lege stu­dents to get their kit off, and get out- thought by the beavers. The ti­tle’s the best thing about it.

The Blu- ray ( rated) comes with au­di­tion tapes, three fea­turettes and a deleted scene. The DVD gets 3D lentic­u­lar pack­ag­ing – whoop! Richard Ed­wards
