Somehow director Glenn R. Miller and writer Scotty Mullen managed to put together a little indie horror comedy that’s like every cheesy sweet Disney Channel family show…meets American Pie!
That alone makes this movie a winner. The Coed and the Zombie Stoner has it all. Excessive tits, ass, and bush. Gut munching. Fart and shit jokes. Tampon, period, dick, and BJ humor. Weed.
Yet, as you watch this story about a geeky sorority sister who falls in love with a zombie created by a mad scientist’s machine and then makes him a popular frat boy, you can’t help but think of it as cute. Look at the two twats with landing strips. How cute! There goes a hot guy bending over to get barebacked because he thinks it will prevent him from becoming a zombie. Adorable! Zombie gets a hit of a pot smoke antidote and morphs into a drag queen? Fabulous!
Think of an all-out absurd 80s teen sexploitation flick and you’ll totally get The Coed and the Zombie Stoner. Plenty of slapstick and perverted zombie chaos is just part of what makes this movie so simply charming. The other part is that there’s not an ounce of seriousness to be found.
The writing is totally adolescent and campy with no apologies. The cast completely gets the tone of the film they’re making, acting perfectly silly and having absolute fun with the material. And the visual and auditory gags are right on target, to the point of delivering purely dopey, cartoonish Scooby Doo antics.
“THE HAND! IT’S FINGER BANGING ME!”
If imagining the guy above saying that line in a zombie movie is too dumb for you, go watch something smart like 28 Days Later (which actually gets a wink-wink here).
And if you watch a movie called The Coed and The Zombie Stoner and conclude that it’s stupid only after coming out on the other side of it, well, you were in smarter company for an hour and a half.
