    Before Cooties is a zombie movie, it is an earnest-young-teacher movie that diligently subscribes to every cliché of the form.

    Amusing as the Cooties script manages to be, one gets the distinct impression that its authors didn’t bother to visit a school at any point in the research or writing process, missing out on any number of jokes they could have made at public education’s expense.

    Cooties, while suitably gross and buoyed by game performances, doesn’t exploit its concept nearly as well as it should.

    This is a movie in search of a finale.

    It makes an occasionally spirited pretense of injecting the tensions of the United States's educational system into a familiar zombie-siege scenario.

    Cooties is a midnight movie for those fine with dozing off about twenty minutes in, once the charm of its single sentence log-line has worn off.

The charactersA slightly fresh take on a old Zombie film genre; I give cooties credit for giving a (basic) story behind the zombie plague. The characters were mostly forgettable, but let's face it, most people who enjoy zombie films aren't always in it for top tier acting or a memorable story line.

    Cooties is a funny, interesting take on a dying movie genre. They take some risks, but never enough to actually make you ever regret watching the film. Some people have taken offence to the fact children are the main target of the virus and movie violence, to them I simply say "get over it ****

The idea of child actors being able to take on more adult roles is appealing to me as I enjoy watching child actors really show what they are made of. The story stays on topic of what a zombie film should be but it dosen't resort to every typical zombie movie ever made cliche and I think that's great. Some of the acting could be stronger at times and some writing felt pushed aside. Expand

    For its production standards not a bad product.

    Some of the decent second tier horror and zombie movies were made in the 2015 and this is one of that. When the actors are in demand, we expect big from their movies, but this story suits for these actors. Because an average story looks better with guys are not in the watch-out list. So I was not surprised with the movie, but enjoyed the entertainment it offered.

    Rainn Wilson's the man of the movie, but as for the narration Elijah Woods stands on the front. In this, the children were the antagonist, but it is an R rated movie and nothing was so serious to consider. You know bashing kids kind of stuffs were carefully crafted. Comedy means not like you're going to get the loud ones, but simply acceptable for a change in the storytelling.

    If you exclude the zombie kids, the rest of the movie was nothing new. The same old adventure with the similar group of people who tries to survive the epidemic. Especially how it all begins was not logical, so you better not look for a proper explanation for those things. Even the runtime was well shorter than the 90 minutes that makes it sweet, Overall a fun movie, only if you accept what it delivers than what you want.

Pathetically attempts to be campy, but ends up being like that decomposing dairy based dessert one left out and forgets for summer weeks on end in the darkness of pantry & ala Homer Simpson attempts to ingest only to succumb to a mixture of rotten photodegradation as product is brought to the light of critical view & end result: subsequent mixture of poor filmmaking & green bile. One of those exercises where one wonders how can this much talent not know they are making such fowl stank degradation? This is visual vomit makes the standard for cinema garbage (bad Adam Sandler movies) seem like classics. Was angry enough with Redbox to try & figure out a way to get my dollar back for renting this absolute trash. Expand
