In Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, the new horror comedy from director Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones), a trio of high school-aged boy scouts have to put their survival skills to the ultimate test when their quiet town is overrun by a zombie scourge. Wilderness Survival? Big deal. Woodwork? So What. Camping? Whatever. In the face of the zombie apocalypse, Troupe 264 puts their scouting abilities (and some new ones I’m quite certain they don’t teach in the scouts) to unprecedented use to save the day against a horde of the flesh-hungry undead.
In anticipation of the film’s release, I recently spoke with Landon and cast members David Koechner, Logan Miller, Sarah Dumont and Joey Morgan about what merit badge they would award their characters for their achievements in the film (or in Landon’s case, what he would award himself for his achievements on set). Their characters get up to all kinds of crazy antics, so they had a lot to choose from. Watch what they came up with in the video below.
Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is now in theaters. Here’s the official synopsis.
Three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one badass cocktail waitress to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they’ll fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead.
