Movie Review: Bunks

This week I’m reviewing Bunks, a fun zombie movie for kids. Here’s what it’s about:

“When two trouble-making brothers scam their way into an idyllic summer camp, they find themselves leading a rag tag cabin of boys into breaking every rule in the book. But the real trouble starts when they accidentally trigger a curse that brings a camp fire zombie story to life.”

Bunks is goofy in a way kids love. It’s horror comedy, so expect more slapstick than gore. I imagined watching it with my nephews who are in grade school and middle school. As boys, I could see us poking fun and laughing throughout.

The plot is pretty simple but entertaining, and for a zombie movie it’s also good, kinda clean fun. While the characters were typical wimp, bully, counselor types for a summer camp movie, the acting was campy in a way that worked for the movie. Go into Bunks knowing it’s target audience is young boys at their goofiest moments and you’ll enjoy it too.

Bunks is on Netflix. Add it to your queue, and make sure you watch it with the kids.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5

    • I was camp deprived as well. Went to day camp one year. They advertised a whole bunch of activities, but after a week of nothing but dodge-ball and many complaints to my mom, I quit. Giving me an idea to write a story about a dodge-ball demon.
