Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred is a 2011 made-for-TV comedy horror film directed by John Fortenberry, starring Lucas Cruikshank, Jake Weary, and Stephanie Courtney. The movie serves as a sequel to the original Fred: The Movie and follows the life of Fred Figglehorn, a young boy with a high-pitched voice and eccentric personality. The movie begins with Fred having a nightmare about Zombie Judy, his crush, but he is soon awakened by his mother who tells him he needs to start acting more mature now that he is entering middle school. Fred is reluctant to change his childish ways and proceeds to come up with a variety of schemes to try to impress Judy, including creating a homemade zombie movie.

However, Fred's movie-making plans go awry when his neighbor Kevin sneaks into his room and adds embarrassing footage of Fred to his movie. In the meantime, Kevin's father, Mr. Devlin, has been experimenting with chemical compounds in his basement, which accidentally create a gas that turns people into zombies.

Fred and Kevin, along with Judy and their friend Bertha, get trapped in Mr. Devlin's house and are pursued by a group of zombie-like creatures bent on infecting them with the gas. With the help of their science teacher, Fred and his friends must find a cure for the infection before it spreads beyond the house.

Throughout the movie, Fred struggles with his own insecurities and desire to fit in with the cool kids. He realizes that being himself is more important than trying to impress others and learns to appreciate his unique personality. Meanwhile, Kevin learns to stand up to his overbearing father and Judy begins to see Fred in a new light.

Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred is a fun and lighthearted movie that combines elements of horror and comedy. The film contains several jump scares and suspenseful moments, but ultimately prioritizes humor over scares. The chemistry between the main cast is enjoyable, with Lucas Cruikshank's over-the-top performance as Fred providing plenty of laughs.

However, the film's main strength lies in its humor, which is effective in keeping the audience entertained. The script contains plenty of jokes and witty one-liners, making it enjoyable for both kids and adults.

Overall, Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred is an entertaining movie that offers a fresh take on the zombie genre.
