Formerly titled Scouts Vs Zombies, Paramount Pictures has released the first spooky clip from their horror comedy Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. Paramount won't have a panel presence at this year's Comic-Con, but they're proving you don't really need one if you have a cool sneak peek that pulls some of the thunder away from the San Diego convention center. And this short clip certainly does, if only for a second or two. We also get the first poster, which offers a unique take on the Swiss Army Knife.

In Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one bad-ass cocktail waitress to become the world's most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they'll fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead. And obviously, one of the first tests they'll face is fighting off a horde of flesh hungry killer cats.

Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse stars Tye Sheridan, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan, Sarah Dumont, Halston Sage, and David Koechner. Directed by Christopher Landon from a script by Emi Mochizuki & Carrie Evans and Christopher Landon, the racous horror comedy will be in theaters this October, just in time for Halloween. Take a look, and prepare yourself for the worst kind of animal attack imaginable!
