Zombie Beavers

Field Freak

What is up with beavers these days? Joke opportunities notwithstanding, beavers have shown up on my horror movie radar alarmingly frequent these days. With just about every other creature of the forest being showcased as a “chew with your mouth open” monster, I guess it was only a matter of time before beavers – who perform a variety of important nature services – get their day in the sun.

First up is Field Freak (2014), the one-sheet poster of which is anything but a beaver. Then again, what do I know? I’m an indoor face. Maybe there have been scientific advancements in the field of freak beavers. Here be the plottage: “A family moves into a remote cabin only to be terrorized by a creature known as the Field Freak.”


That doesn’t indicate beavers, rabid or otherwise, but the trailer (on this newfangled thing called “YouTube™”) makes beaver references throughout. Maybe the wood chompers are Bigfoot’s minions. I just don’t know.

Then there’s Zombeavers (2014), this year’s Sharknado (2013). The plot, if you could call it that, easily assembles like this: “A group of college kids staying at a riverside cabin are menaced by a swarm of deadly zombie beavers. A weekend of sex and debauchery soon turns gruesome as the beavers close in on the kids.”


No wonder the beavers are drawn to the “sex and debauchery;” lots of…wood.

Don’t look at me like that.
