Refreshing teen comedy, who cares of its triviality?, 3 November 2004
Author: Sense_man ( from Darmstadt, Germany

The film's underlying connection is obviously the lot of zombie films which have filled the last decades since Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" (1968). Although its approach is rather a different one. Not horror or the paranoid feeling of being enclosed by undead is the theme, but the problems and boons that come with being transformed to an undead. So you get the feeling of what's like to be one of the "evil" kind. And in this it's pretty funny, because there are many scenes in which the teenage actors are reacting unexpected, but never miss the point to be what they are: a bunch of maturing youths, whose only interests are in women, booze and party! So you better won't expect to find any trace of subtile character-play or the tragic evaluation of one's unforgiving fate - what doesn't mean that there are no interesting story-bends in it. You bet they are! The cast is fine with me, with the special appearance of Sissi Perlinger, a more or less well known comedian, as way-to-cool mother. Moments of blood & gore are limited, for which it's not the film's intention to shock you out of your skin and also the brief nudity is way too normal nowadays. The German rating is 12+ (PG) and nothing to discuss about. Interestingly there this a similar film out now with the title "Shaun of the dead" which takes on the funny sides of zombie-films, too, although it has a better making and the puns are more precise than in this one. But hey, it's a German film, alright? What else should one expect from a small budget and trivial story? So lean back, enjoy the film ...and remember the horrid times when there were films with the name "Zwei Nasen tanken Super"!
