How do you make a movie about three German zombiehunters in Gothemburg and manage to not make it entertaining?!
30 March 2011 | by MidoriFioreSee all my reviews

The short version:

How do you make a movie about three German zombiehunters in Gothemburg and manage to not make it entertaining?!

The long version:

I picked this film up on darkdisc.com for 99 crowns( like 10 bucks) and gave it a watch last night. It's a sort of gory zombie/exploitation film.

We follow a bunch of retarded Germans with peculiar hair-cuts who makes their living killing zombies. They go to Gothemburg to wipe out 150 zombies. I don't see how the Gothemburg police could not handle 150 zombies. I live in Stockholm, but I am 100% sure the police of Gothemburg could handle 150 zombies. If it were like a 150 000 zombies it could work, but now it's not. There is also a Italian psychopathic hit-man who is captured av tortured by Merlin's evil twin.

A annoying reporter follows them and abuses her cameraman.

There is also a necrophiliac who has a date with a corpse, but this has nothing to do with the plot. I don't mind people putting small and funny scenes in their movies that douse not really have anything to do with the plot, but this was way to random.

The beginning is pretty good for being such a low budget film with good tempo, but then the zombie-killers arrive in Gothemburg it loses it's good paste. Half of the film is zombies getting shot by the zombie-hunters.

For the most it's ugly looking computer blood, but at times we have some cool real blood coming out of the zombies. The make--up effects are good for the most for the budget being so low, but there are 2-3 zombies that look horrible. There is ripped of skin and eyes being eaten.

There is also nudity. There is a scene were a girl rubs her naked breasts and a sex scene with full frontal nudity involving the two ugliest people I have ever seen in my entire life. Why any one wanted to go naked in this film is a mystery to me.

The acting is horrible. Aldo Cunei actually gives a solid performance, but he has way to little screen time. The reporter is annoying and adds nothing to the film. The Germans are OK, they are funny at times but also pretty boring at times. I liked their boss Hans, but the other members had little personality. The villain is just weird.
