"I think I'm having brain withdrawals."

Completely hilarious. That's my feeling about "Freaks of nature". First I was afraid this would be another high school teen-movie. Eventually this turned out to be a rather absurd, horror-comedy. A kind of "Porkies in Zombieland" with vampires, zombies and a crazy army of aliens passing through. Of course the known types of youngsters were used again. As expected.

Very inventive novel idea turns into a so-so teen comedy. The usual trappings of high school movies force the characters into cliched areas. It is nice to see focus on the kids, but when your story embodies the same motif of high schoolers maturing in relationships (romantic and friendly) it drags down the fun.

The only new addition is the overall creative plot surrounding them. Throwing vampires, zombies, and aliens all in the same movie turned out to be an effortless mashup. Those elements breathe easy together in a straight up comedic tone. The comedy itself is pretty hit-or-miss. I chuckled often …
