Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one badass cocktail waitress to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. Tye Sheridan (‘Mud,’ ‘Dark Places’), Logan Miller (‘I’m in the Band,’ ‘Night Moves’), and newcomer Joey Morgan are three scouts who, on the eve of their last camp out, discover a zombie outbreak. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead.”

… a witless undead retread served up as a vulgar revenge-of-the-dorks comedy. …one instance of undead cunnilingus, and a scene featuring a prosthetic penis that gets pulled apart like taffy. …
Justin Chang, Variety
…if we were to compose a list of the best zombie comedies ever made… there is no need to make any room on that list for “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse,” a deeply irritating horror-comedy that might have worked as a “Funny or Die” short but is pretty much DOA as a feature-length concern. … [1]

…Story elements in Scouts Guide could hardly be more archetypal… Technically, “Scouts Guide…” is nothing special…
