Cooties

(2014) ***1/2

Catfreeek totally nailed the plot in her review earlier this month, but to recap: Elijah Wood plays Clint, a writer who returns to his hometown to work on his first novel.  He accepts a gig as a substitute teacher at the local elementary school, but unfortunately his first day is marked by the spread of a chicken-nugget-borne virus that turns the children into bloodthirsty zombies.

Rotten tomatoes wrong, Catfreeek right.  Cooties is a fun blend of comedy and zombie action with a great cast. Another good pick if you like your horror a bit on the lighter side.

Glad you enjoyed this, I've quit looking at Rotten Tomatoes since I seem to disagree with them more then I agree anymore.

Yeah, this one sounds like fun! I haven't seen it, but... screw Rotten Tomatoes! We have our own ratings, thanks.
