Zombeavers (2014)

Three friends go away for a girls only weekend, which was originally a couples weekend until ones boyfriend cheated on her. The first night, surprise!  The boys have driven up to join them, and awkward exchanges ensue before they are allowed to stay.

The next day they head to the pond to get some sun, swim, and hang out on the raft.  Everything is going great until the beavers show up.  No one takes the critters seriously, because well they're beavers.  But these beavers have been infected by toxic waste caused by a barrel which bounced off a truck and made its way down river until coming to rest on their lodge.

Racing back to their cabin, the kids lock themselves in and try to figure out what to do.  It's never a good thing when a zombie bites you, and a zombie beaver is no different.  Havoc and carnage ensues.

This horror/comedy has a great title, premise, and trailer, but the film didn't live up to it's potential.  Perhaps I expected too much from it, but it just seemed like it could have either been funnier or scarier, or both.  I did like the animation in the credits though.
