Horror comedy Zombeavers (review) recently had its UK debut at Film4 FrightFest, but it hit Tribeca last spring for its world premiere, where we had a chance to chat with director and co-writer Jordan Rubin plus several members of the cast.
Stars Peter Gilroy, Rex Linn, Courtney Palm, Jake Weary, Rachel Melvin, and Lexi Atkins emerged from the Zombeavers onslaught to discuss acting in horror movies vs. watching them, the treasures to be found while peeing in the woods, and the ghostly presence of poor Old Yeller.
Additionally, Rubin (pictured above), a veteran of television comedy, joined in to talk about the technical considerations one must take into account when choosing between practical puppet zombeavers vs. CGI zombeavers.
Beware: A few spoilers for some classic movies that should be beyond spoiling by now are lurking in the below video, but there are no spoilers for Zombeavers itself.
Zombeavers is a horror comedy with hysterical interludes, gross-out gore, and old school animatronics. The flick will be releasing in the UK on Blu-ray and DVD on October 20, 2014.
A group of college students head out into the wilderness for spring break, unaware of the danger that lurks beneath the lake. Unbeknownst to the vacationers, a chemical spill has irreversibly altered the wildlife, and zombeavers are on the prowl. As a weekend of sex, drugs, and debauchery gets under way, the beavers close in on their prey; and the bloodthirsty beasts really do take the term ‘killer weekend’ to the next level.
