Movie Review: Cooties

Story line: From the twisted minds of Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of "Glee"), 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. COOTIES will be one of the debut releases of the newly-launched Lionsgate Premiere label, which will release the film on September 18th in select theaters and on demand.

SpectreVision and Glacier Films present COOTIES, starring Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, Leigh Whannell, Nasim Pedrad, Ian Brennan and Jorgé Garcia. The film is directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion from a screenplay by Leigh Whannell and Ian Brennan. Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller and Elijah Wood produce along with Tove Christensen, Georgy Malkov and Steven Schneider. Ian Brennan, Leigh Whannell, Gevond Andreasyan, Sarik Andreasyan, Hayden Christensen, Seth William Meier and Vladmir Poliakov serve as Executive Producers.

Fangirl Thoughts: I enjoyed watching tainted chicken nuggets turn the students of a middle school into cannibalistic zombies. The teachers were tasked with finding a way to survive. I enjoyed the moment when the one kid that was not infected states that the other kids have Cooties. This movie is nice and bloody. There is a moment when there are hobbit jokes made to Elijah Wood. This movie is so good. I was hollering laughing at the madness and screaming in horror at the gore.

What makes this movie so twisted is that it is little kids tearing people apart with their teeth. I thought Children of the Corn was bad...this movie takes it to another level.  It is fun watching the Asian janitor bring out some samurai moves and the typical creepy sex-ed teacher become up close and personal with some of the students. You should definetly check this movie if you love comedic gorey horror.
