Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but there have been one or two films about zombie apocalypses in the last decade or so. Here’s another, and its novelty is that it’s kinda American Pie- ish, featuring horny male teens obsessed with spreading their oats in danger of becoming zombie nosh.
The lads in question are boy scouts whose plans to attend a teen party are scuppered by… guess what. They then join forces with a brassy stripper ( Sarah Dumont) to splatter the undead over the sidewalks.
Scouts Guide is an odd little movie, a curious mix of sweetness, violent goriness and tasteless lasciviousness – one icky oral sex scene is a real low. There are no big laughs, but it does show a bit of invention ( considering the tiredness of the genre) and should pass the time well enough if you’ve cans of lager and stuffed crust pizzas to hand. With a better soundtrack – most of the songs on it are a bit rubbish – it could have been a whole lot more fun.
Extras Featurettes on the make- up effects, zombie choreography and costume design, plus two deleted scenes. Russell Lewin

Black Friday was getting ridiculous.
