Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse trailer brings the gore

A new trailer has appeared online for forthcoming zom-com Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse (previously known as Scouts vs Zombies), in which a trio of boyscouts find themselves attempting to save the world from the walking dead.

Needless to say, our three unlikely heroes soon find themselves teaming up with the cocktail waitress from the local strip club (because of course they do), who turns out to be a natural with a shotgun. Which is fortunate, seeing as most of their expertise seems to lie in the knot-tying business.

Check out the new (NSFW) trailer, below…

Not exactly highbrow stuff then, but there are enough creatively grisly kill-shots on show here to suggest this one might pick up a cult following. It certainly looks to have the teenage boy market sewn up, in any case… Directed by Christopher Landon and co-starring Tye Sheridan and Halston Sage, Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse will open in the US on October 30 2015 and the UK on November 6 2015.
