Freaks of Nature (2015)

Director: Robbie Pickering

Stars: Nicholas Braun, Mackenzie Davis, Josh Fadem, Denis Leary, Vanessa Hudgens, Keegan-Michael Key, Bob Odenkirk, Joan Cusack, Patton Oswalt

Three days ago, everything was peaceful and business as usual. The vampires were at the top of the social order, the zombies were at the bottom, and the humans were getting along in the middle. But this delicate balance was ripped apart when the alien apocalypse arrived in Dillford and put an end to all the harmony. Now it's humans vs. vampires vs. zombies in all-out, blood-sucking, brain-eating, vamp-staking mortal combat - and all of them are on the run from the aliens. It is up to three teenagers - one human, one vampire, and one zombie - to team up, figure out how to get rid of the interplanetary visitors, and try to restore order to this "normal" little town.

This movie takes a look at the teenage vampire movies and all of the tons of zombie movies that have been made. They twist it all together and add in some teen drama, then work on making the movie kind of funny. They are making light of all of that stuff and throwing into one movie. It did work though.

This is another movie for kids in high school. The craziest part about the whole movie is that it does have a message hidden inside. This movie is a screwed up way to teach diversity to teenagers and teach them how to work together to get something done. That is the real message behind this movie. I hope they get it, but then again it will go over their heads.

The special effects and the action in the movie was very well done for this type of movie. It is not a movie for the whole family, but teens and up would really like it. The movie answers that question of what would happen, if they all meet, and this movie tries to answer that question.

This is not that bad of a movie. It is worth watching at least once. I do not see it being a rewatcher, but some people will. Enjoy.
