Old-school monster movies have never really been my bag. I've always found them cheesy and laughable, and not really in a good way. So when a movie manages to take the general idea of the old monster movies and make it actually funny, I become a fan. SyFy tries its best with movies like Sharknado and Sharktopus, but they just don't seem to cut it. Zombeavers, however, managed to gross me out with its gore and make me LOL more than a few times.
It seems to have almost all the right parts to be a great spoof movie - the acting is spot on for exactly this kind of movie, there are hilariously terrible beaver puppets, and the deaths are more than over-the-top with the gore. Not to mention, there are funny cameos by Bill Burr and John Mayer. The whole thing was just a pleasant surprise.
Don't watch this if you're looking for a serious "creature-feature" movie, you will quickly find yourself to be disappointed. Do watch this if you are of that certain state of mind where you want to watch something corny and funny. You will be pleased.
Would I recommend it? Yes. It's never going to win "Movie of the Year" but it is funny enough for multiple viewings.
