Hello, and welcome to my 2021 April A to Z Blogging Challenge! This year, I am listing all the horror movies Alec and I have seen over the course of the pandemic (so far), with notes. And today is “Z,” and the last post of all! And I have but one movie to talk about for “Z.” When I constructed my initial list, “Z” was one of two letters that I had no entries for. I had to go and seek a “Z.” And what I found was wonderful.
This is going to be short and sweet today, folks. I have an exciting thing to do today that will take up lots of time. For, you see, we are about to adopt kittens! And our house needs to be kitten-proofed and made comfortable for the lil psychopaths (I say that affectionately; we lost our cat Anubis in January, and our house has been bereft of furry little psychos ever since, and it just isn’t the same house without something insane and fur-covered making odd demands) before they arrive (which may happen as soon as tomorrow).
So that’s my big news. Or rather, my small, furry news. We’re desperately excited.
Without further ado… I present to you…

I had low expectations for this movie. I mean, the title made me think it was going for bad-on-purpose. Actually, it turned out to be a blast. A very amusing and well-scripted horror-comedy. It is about… well, look, it’s about zombeavers. Some people go to a remote cabin by a lake, and it turns out that there are zombeavers all over the place. It isn’t a subtle movie. But it does have an amazing song. The song has some spoilers in it, but I feel that nothing is ruined that the genre-savvy movie-goer would not already guess. So I’m going to ask you, if you like, to listen to this song. Please note that this video inhabits an uncomfortable twilight zone where it is technically (but only technically) safe for work. And note that it is labelled 18+. And that–I mean, there are clips from a horror movie about zombie beavers in the video, so if you don’t want to see that, don’t play it.
If you’re okay with all of that, I’d go ahead and play the video.
If you will further indulge me, imagine that this is the song that is playing over the ending credits of this A to Z. The lights have come up in the theater, and everyone is blinking and looking for their purses and things and wondering what happened to all that popcorn. Soon, you’ll be out on the street again, pursuing your various courses to your various homes, or going on to some other entertainment. For now, though, this is happening.
Right. So, that’s it for my A to Z! I will be playing blog catch-up with other A to Zers over the coming weeks. For now, I have a kitten-receiving zone to prep.
