Cooties (2015) Synopsis:

This is the first day for Clint as a sub-teacher in his new school. Unfortunately for him, a nasty zombie-like virus infecting the kids will make his day harder than initially planned.

Cooties (2015) Review:

Written by the writer of the Saw and Insidious movies, Cooties is a zombie-themed comedy which can be seen as quite similar to Shaun of the Dead (or Juan of the Dead for that matter) except with kids as the zombies.

Similarly to Shaun, the main comedy aspect comes from the characters, a bunch of really colorful crazy teachers, all of them with their own disturbing personality: the douchebag sports teacher, the socially awkward science teacher, etc. The stereotypes are pushed to the extreme and that is enough to make the movie hilarious.

The imagery is really neat too – the sharp colors and inventive shots fit well with the zombie-kids theme. The zombie kids are fun to watch, playing with eyeballs as if they were marbles and all kinds of disgusting things… but the action scenes were a bit disappointing, especially when adults could be clearly seen as playing the zombies instead of kids.


Overall, Cooties was a nice little watch, far from perfect indeed, but fun to watch all along. The presence of known faces, and especially Elijah Woods in a character quite unusual for him, is reason enough to watch that comedy.
