Storyline

Steve, a young professional snowboarder, ruins a high-paying photoshoot with a silly prank, causing him, his girlfriend Branka and fellow snowboarder Josh to be left behind on the mountain. They seek shelter in a garish, loud aprés-ski tavern that is hosting an all-night party for the last night of the season. Things go from bad to worse when a scientific experiment conducted by a local entrepreneur unleashes an epidemic of zombies and mutant wildlife, but this is mostly lost on the local drunkards as they themselves are not always so easy to distinguish from zombies. Steve, Branka and Josh have to find a way to survive this hellish night. Finally, their epic battle for survival leads to them having to use their snowboarding skills to defeat the raging aprés-ski zombies once and for all. Written by Anonymous

Never really thaws......
16 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Lederhosen Zombies is yet another zombie flick in a horror genre that's already overcrowded with shuffling, undead munchers.

This time the setting is a ski lodge/mountain resort somewhere in Europe. In itself, this is novel idea, as is combining zombie killing with a snowboarding theme. These elements are cleverly interwoven and oddly enough, work well together.

The acting is pretty reasonable too, for a B grade flick. There's good chemistry between the cast and the performances are, as convincing as is possible, for a nonsensical horror spoof of this kind.

Where this film fails to thaw, for me, is its noticeable lack of black humour. The whole proposition screams or at least "moans", comedy. There are a few exposition based, set pieces, that could be construed as mildly amusing but they never really spark. Whats really missing here is a more exaggerated, "over the top", treatment with zany characters and some good, well thought through comedic narrative.

The result is a film that's moderately watchable but, for the most part, is brain dead in the humour department. Which is a shame, as there is so much comedic potential inherent in the material. Six out of ten from me.
