'FREAKS OF NATURE': Four and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A horror-comedy flick about vampires, zombies and humans; that all live together peacefully, in a small conservative town, until aliens arrive. The movie was directed by Robbie Pickering, and written by Oren Uziel (who also co-wrote '22 JUMP STREET'). The film stars Nicholas Braun, Mackenzie Davis, Josh Fadem, Vanessa Hudgens, Ed Westwick, Mae Whitman, Denis Leary, Keegan-Michael Key, Bob Odenkirk, Joan Cusack, Patton Oswalt and Pat Healy. I absolutely loved it!

The story takes place in the town of Dillford; where zombies, vampires and humans have all been living together peacefully, for years. When aliens attack them, the three different species all start fighting again; killing each other off before the aliens even get a chance. Three outcasts teenagers (a human, a vampire and a zombie) must ban together, to save themselves and their town. They must teach their neighbors to overcome biases, in order to do so (of course).

The film is action-packed, and hilarious; it's also got a rocking 'punk rock' soundtrack! I love the premise; and it actually has a very positive and insightful message, for everyone. It's jarring how quickly it goes between clever comedy, excessive gore and smart social commentary. The cast is awesome, the directing is badass and the script is brilliant. I also love monster movies, so I might be a little biased, but I loved it!
