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

User Reviews

 
Quite average on all levels
5 October 2017 | by hellholehorrorSee all my reviews

A lesser version of Idle Hands (1999) due to the pot references and a lesser version of Shaun of the Dead (2004) due to the zombie comedy. This would have been great if they were geeks or nerds but they were dorks and that was just annoying. There are plenty of stoner and drug references which could be a political stab against the brain-dead generation but I really doubt that. I didn't laugh very much and I found my attention slipping quite a lot. It was quite funny, quite entertaining, quite interesting and quite average on all levels. Good idea made without flair.
