Storyline

The school friends Philip, Wurst and Konrad are high-school losers: Philip desires the sexy Uschi, an easy girl for successful boys; the complex Konrad lists all the humiliations he has been submitted in school; and Wurst only cares to dope himself and smoke pot. Philip's next door gothic neighbor Rebecca has a non-corresponded crush on Philip. When Rebecca performs an ancient voodoo ritual in the cemetery with her friends, Philip and his friends arrive, mocking the ceremony and are accidentally blasted with zombie ashes from Haiti. Then, while driving his van, Wurst smokes marijuana but he has a car accident and the trio dies. However, they awake in the morgue and sooner they realize that they have become zombies. While seeking an antidote in the Necronomicon, Konrad, Wurst and Philip find the advantages of being zombies, becoming successful due to their recently acquired strength. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The last twenty minutes were cut from the movie and re-shot half a year after the original shoot. Several new endings were discussed closely with Producer Bernd Eichinger, including an ending in which Konrad, now a bad-ass zombie, joins a biker gang. The original ending can be found both on the german and the English DVD. See more »

A decent but hilarious movie combining comedy with typical zombie images
3 November 2004 | by (Münster) – See all my reviews

OK, out of the previews I knew this was a pretty funny movie. The topic on it was obvious.

This movie is made in Germany, obviously out of the title and it probably won't ever come to the US. There are only German actors in it who fit their characters pretty well. The special actor in this movie is Collien Fernandes. It's not a usual movie for her to be in though she's looking veeeery nice, even in this movie.

'Die Nacht der lebenden Loser' is not a real Horror-Movie, rather a Horror-Comedy-Movie with more comedy in it than horror. There are no real scary scenes and just a few slightly shocking moments. So even your girl should be pretty amused by it.

I could imagine that it's related to the bunch of zombie movies which came out (more or less) recently, like Resident Evil 2 and 28 days later. Though without being like them at all. It has got a whole bunch of funny scenes in it like when parts are falling off of the characters, flat comments and dark humor. I really enjoyed watching it and laughed a lot at several moments. Though I need to mention that I really like this kind of humor.

The characters are done well and the zombieteenagers look really freaky as the movie goes on further.

The Plot outline describes all you need to know about the story of this movie.

This movie is not necessarily one of the top (comedy) movies you might have seen, though I still recommend watching it!
