Vanessa Hudgens takes the vampires and zombies in stride in Freaks of Nature.

In the town of Dillford, everything was peaceful and business as usual: the vampires were at the top of the social order, the zombies were at the bottom, and the humans were getting along in the middle. But this delicate balance was ripped apart when the alien apocalypse arrived and put an end to all the harmony. Now it’s humans vs. vampires vs. zombies in all-out, blood-sucking, brain-eating, vamp-staking mortal combat – and all of them are on the run from the aliens. It is up to three teenagers – one human, one vampire, and one zombie – to team up and try to restore order to this “normal” little town.

Directed by Robbie Pickering (Natural Selection, Prom Night) and written by Oren Uziel (22 Jump Street), Freaks of Nature stars Nicholas Braun (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Mackenzie Davis (TV’s Halt and Catch Fire) and Josh Fadem (Miss March). Joining them are Joan Cusack (TV’s Shameless), Bob Odenkirk (TV’s Better Call Saul), Vanessa Hudgens (Spring Breakers), Denis Leary (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Patton Oswalt (Young Adult).

The R-rated movie trickled into a limited number of theaters in early November, where it didn’t make  much of an impression. Ditto with the critics…Still, the spatter looks fun and Vanessa H and MacKenzie D are hot…

Bonus features on the discs include a gag reel, an alternate opening and deleted scenes.
