Entertaining zombie flick with a nice twist to the usual proceedings. The cast is very good but could have been allowed to do more with their characters. Script and direction is basic and swift which works. The score was a standout for me. The jokes however are more like chuckle-funny than laugh-out-load-funny. A good watch for sure but nothing to write home about really.
It tries so hard to be edgy that is becomes pc. Cooties feels more self-referential than sardonic. and would have worked better had it been darker both in comedy and horror, as it brings nothing new to the sub-genre, feeling very predictable and routine the whole way through. It's at its best when it relates the education system to a battleground of politics, but that's even glazed over, too.
