Cooties (3 stars out of 5)


Basic Summary – COOTIES is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into killer zombies, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The film stars Elijah Wood (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), and Alison Pill (“The Newsroom”) as teachers who fight to survive the mayhem while hilariously bickering in an uncomfortable love triangle on the worst Monday of their lives.

Okay, I’ve wanted to see this movie since the trailer dropped. Was I impressed by it – eh. I was really looking forward to this film for so long because it looked amazing and funny. However, the more I got into it, I was more confused by it. Like was this film supposed to be taken a horror film or a complete comedy. I feel there was a conflict of interests with the story. It tried to be scary but it was trying to be light-hearted as well. Don’t get me wrong, it had it’s funny moments, but most of the time I was just sitting there in silence.

The actors in this film are all really good. Like I have seen them in other works that aren’t always comedy. But my god. They could totally do comedy if the situation came to it. Even the background characters were hilarious – they made sure to make their “stories” count.

Would I recommend it – I mean it was a nice film to watch on a Friday night, however for it’s price on iTunes, it wasn’t completely worth it.

Where can you find it – It’s in theaters if you want to go out and find it or go on iTunes since it is also available there.

Now the part you have been waiting for – Here are my live reactions to the film. Go enjoy them . . .
