The problem is that they do not want to harm the feelings of their friend Angie Foster and the Scout Leader Rogers. They have a flat tire after hitting a deer on the road and Carter's sister Kendall Grant, her boyfriend and her friend Chloe stop their Jeep to see whether they need a ride.
When they drive through the town, they do not see a living soul, and they decide to visit a night-club since the bouncer is not at the door. They discover that people have turned into zombies and they team-up with Ben's recent acquaintance Denise Russo, who is bartender in the nightclub, and Angie that was left alone at the camp and came to the town.
Edit Trivia The use of a trampoline to escape the Zombies is from the classic Super Nintendo game “Zombies Ate My Neighbors,” where the main characters use trampolines to jump from garden to garden. Goofs The janitor goes into the lab to mop the floor.
Crazy Credits The Paramount logo turns into a Boy Scout merit badge. The film was released in the United States on October 30, 2015, by Paramount Pictures.
The scientist agrees and retreats to the hallway to a vending machine. While Angie has always been happy about being a Scout, Ben and Carter have second thoughts.
Carter tries convincing Ben to quit, but he can't as Angie is about to get his Condor Patch. Their conversation about quitting is cut short when Ben accidentally hits a deer.
They manage to get help from Carter's sister, Kendall, and her friends. Before they leave, the two are invited to the “Secret Seniors Party” and Carter is given the address.
When they get alcohol for the party, they meet Denise, a cocktail waitress that works at a strip club. That night, still concerned about the disappearance of Scout Leader Rogers, the trio talk about how great their friendship has been before heading to sleep.
The two drive into town to find that the bouncer for the strip club is no longer there, and they sneak in. The two are immediately attacked by a zombie bouncer and stripper before being saved by a shotgun-wielding Denise.
Ben, Carter, and Denise go to the police station to discover that the town has been evacuated, before a zombie horde chases them into a locked holding cell. They wait for hours when the zombies hear music from outside and leave.
Angie, seeing Ben's car, runs in and unlocks the cell, freeing them. They drive to the party to see if anyone is evacuated, only to find that the address that was sent to Carter was fake.
The group starts to argue, but Reeves was bitten before meeting them and has now turned into a zombie. They manage to escape using a trampoline to get to the now combined neighbor, Ms. Fielder's house.
The four find a dirt bike down the road and Denise takes it, so she can get the military. Now left by themselves, Ben, Carter, and Angie weapon up at a hardware store and head to the party.
Once they run out of ammo, they lock themselves in the building and the zombies follow them upstairs. Denise and the military arrive at the scene, setting up medical tents and helping the survivors while the Scouts reconcile their friendship and Ben and Kendall kiss.
Prior to this film Christopher Landon worked on three movies in the Paranormal Activity series and enjoyed the chance to do something more lighthearted. He noted the comparisons in the script to various 80s movies stating “When I read the first script, I was like, 'Wow, I can actually make a gory R-rated version of The Goodies and Gremlins or even Monster Squad “ At the same time Landon noted that he wanted the film to not be a complete throwback and wanted to modernize the genre some, a task he compared to a similar issue with Disturbed in trying to modernize a Hitchcock thriller.

The film starts with Ron the janitor (Blake Anderson) jamming out to “Black Widow” in the halls of a research facility. Peter leaves to get a snack from the vending machine while Ron cleans up.
There, he finds a man hooked up to a machine with tubes, and his skin is pale and many. As he tries to fix it, he then attempts to give the man CPR, until he sees his bleeding gums.
The man jumps up and starts throwing Ron all over the room while Peter is struggling to get a bag of chips out. As he tries to reach the bag, Ron emerges from the room all combined and attacks Peter.
Although discouraged, Rogers reminds the boys that tonight is a special night for Angie, since he's getting his Condor Badge. Carter is more interested in hooking up with girls, while Ben thinks they should stick around for their buddy.
Ben then hits a deer on the road, causing a flat tire. As they change it, Carter sees his sister Kendall (Alston Sage) arriving with her boyfriend Jeff (Patrick Schwarzenegger) and friend Chloe (Niki Loss).
While Ben talks to Kendall, Carter chats up the other two and gets an invitation to a secret senior party that night. He stabs the deer in the eye with his lucky knife, only to then get his throat bitten out by zombie Peter.
Passing by is Denise (Sarah Dumont), a girl that supposedly dropped out from the boys' high school and became a stripper. Ben meets her when the handle of her purse breaks, so he fixes it with a special knot.
Denise notices that Carter is trying to get the money back from the bum, so she goes in and coolly grabs the money and gets the beers for the boys before heading to work at the strip joint across the street, Lawrence of Arabia (seriously). Ben and Carter meet Angie in the woods where he's already getting his camping gear ready.
When Carter shows up, the zombie stripper climbs the pole, and blood spurts from her open neck wound. She pulls him out from behind the bar, but Carter kills her by sticking a broken glass bottle in her head (which causes blood to pour from the open wound onto his face).
Denise (who is really a cocktail waitress) appears with a shotgun and blasts the bouncer's head off. The three run outside, and the boys slowly realize that they are indeed dealing with a zombie breakout.
Ben drives like crazy out of there, causing his spare tire to fall off. Denise holds off the zombies as the boys quickly replace the tire before they drive away.
Angie then goes to take a dump and returns to the living room to find zombie Rogers. Ben, Carter, and Denise go to the sheriff's department and see a sign that says the town's been evacuated.
Angie later shows up after seeing Ben's car and blasts “Crank That Soul Boy” to distract the zombies. Ben uses Carter's condoms as a chain and manages to grab the keys until Angie shows up and accidentally kicks them into a drain pipe.
Angie attempts to assert himself using his scouts knowledge, leading him and Carter to sing “Baby One More Time” with the zombie after they notice his Britney Spears shirt. However, Jeff gave Carter the address to a sewage plant (because it's “full of shit”).
To make things worse, they hear on the radio that the town is to be bombed in less than two hours. As the boys fight, the soldier turns into a zombie and attacks Denise.
Carter deduces that Kendall probably wrote the location of the party in her diary, so they take the truck to his house. She attacks Carter and tries to literally eat his ass until he and Angie force her against a window to break it and then chop her head off.
The gang fights them and run toward Kendall's room to jump on the trampoline and over the fence. As the zombies break into the room, Kendall's diary falls out of the underwear drawer.
Ben prepares to jump but nearly slips until he grabs hold of something...a zombie penis. The penis rips off, and Ben falls on the trampoline after Denise distracts the zombies.
The gang runs into Ms. Fielder's home where they encounter her zombie cats. They stop at a hardware store and grab many supplies before heading to the party.
Kendall is worried about her brother, until Jeff admits he gave Carter the wrong address. He pushes Kendall as zombie Chloe enters and attacks Jeff.
Ben makes another speech on how he and Carter were jerks for trying to ditch Angie and that he really loves being a scout because that's how he became friends with them. During the end credits, we see the gang's selfies, including Ben taking Kendall to prom and Denise hanging out with the guys.
