Critic Reviews for The Zero Boys

All Critics (3)

An under-appreciated indie gem from 1986.

September 27, 2020 | Rating: 3.0/4.0 | Full Review…

It isn't until the latter half of the movie that the characters become aware of the danger and the movie doesn't truly hit its stride until the last 20-30 minutes.

May 5, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Add to this a generous lashing of unintentional humour and a young, inexperienced cast largely playing it straight and you have a gloriously awful B-picture.

Audience Reviews for The Zero Boys


This movie was a surprisingly entertaining slasher/adventure movie with a very creepy atmosphere. The acting was ok, there was some suspense and creepy scenes. The only problem I had was the abrupt ending. This is one movie that deserves a sequel or a remake. Recommended if you like backwoods slashers.
