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. Although initially set for a March 13, 2015, date, it was eventually pushed back to October 30, 2015.
In July 2015, Paramount announced that it had struck a deal with AMC Entertainment and Cineplex Entertainment to make Scouts Guide and Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension available digitally, 17 days after they dropped below 300 theaters, as part of a larger experiment, and asked other theaters to join in. In return, Paramount would share an undisclosed portion of proceeds of the VoD revenues.
Per industry sources, Paramount gave participating exhibitors an estimated 2 to 4 percent share of the studio's digital revenue made between the time the film dropped below 300 theaters and 90 days after its opening date. Participants in Paramount's formula include AMC, Canada's Cineplex, National Amusements, and Alamo Draft house.
The film opened on October 30, 2015, alongside Burnt and Our Brand Is Crisis. Critic Peter Dobrzynski of RogerEbert.com savaged the film as “disposable junk”, calling it “loud, repellent, badly written, indifferently directed and almost completely devoid of any genuine laughs”.
The site's consensus reads, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse fails to live up to its intriguingly wacky title, instead delivering yet another zombie comedy-thriller with a tired T&A twist.” On Meta critic, the film has a weighted average score of 32 out of 100, based on 17 critics, indicating “generally unfavorable reviews”.
Audiences polled by CinemaScope gave the film an average grade of “B–”, on an A+ to F scale. The film was released on December 8, 2015, onto Digital HD and On Demand, and on January 5, 2016, on DVD and Blu-ray.
