9/10
Great writing and engaging from the very start
18 February 2016
People love to give horror comedies a bad rap, thinking that they're unholy bastard children of two unrelated genres. The Wayans Brothers almost single-handedly made this sub-genre synonymous with terrible writing. Freaks of Nature is different. The writing is great throughout, it's legitimately funny and has some great casting. The plot is thoroughly original. It balances coming of age, high school cliques, zombies, vampires, pot heads, aliens, battle scenes, a bit of sports, and more (to avoid spoilers). Bonus for Patton Oswald. Best of all the fights and "kills" don't skimp at all on the blood splatter and surprise. They took a little license with traditional zombie norms of intelligence, but it makes them work.
