In the town of Dillford, humans, vampires and zombies were all living in peace – until the alien apocalypse arrived. Now three teenagers-one human, one vampire, and one zombie-have to team up to figure out how to get rid of the visitors.
Human, vampires, zombies, and aliens all come together in this horror comedy. Except, there’s a little twist: the humans, vampires, and zombies are all friends and associates. The only enemies are the aliens.
The humans team up with the vampires and zombies to battle the aliens, who have come to take over the town and put an end to the peace. It’s up to three kids to save the day: one human, one vampire, and one zombie.
Plot: Human vs. vampires vs. zombies vs. aliens. I’d say that’s one interesting plot. It’s not something you see very often in either the vampire, zombie, or alien related genre. This alone is an eye-catcher and certainly has my attention.
Practical Effects: The makeup and special effects for “Freaks of Nature” is very good and without being cheesy.
Performances: The cast did very well in their performances.
Scare Factor: “Freaks of Nature” is full of non-stop laughs and ridiculousness. It’s like “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse” meets the “Freaks of Nature”.
Viewing Experience: Overall, “Freaks of Nature” lags a bit in the action department.
