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

Unique Undead Thriller
30 January 2017 | by isaacushuaiaSee all my reviews

Two words that you've probably never heard together: Zombie deer – a concept as wacky as is it entertaining, which coincidentally is how I would describe Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies. This film continues the tradition of movies such as Shaun of the Dead and Cabin Fever, which show the humorous escapades of a group struggling to survive the zombie apocalypse.

Set in the Austrian Alps, three teenagers are left to fend for themselves after a falling out with their snowboarding sponsors over a prank gone wrong. Trapped on top of a ski resort during a failed science experiment, they must find a way down the mountain to safety before being consumed by the zombie horde. The films emphasis on the origin of the outbreak really stood out to me as most zombie thrillers ignore or breeze over this crucial event.

Where Lederhosen Zombies really shined was through its creative use of special effects and gore. Whether it was disembowelment by wood chipper or decapitation by snowboard, I was constantly on the edge of my seat, wide-eyed, and thirsty for the next unexpected kill.

In a nutshell, Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies it a flick that excels in the entertainment factor and shouldn't be taken too seriously. Filled to the brim with comedic one-liners and eye-brow raising violence, this movie branches out into its own genre: ZomCom. I really enjoyed the unique spin on one of my favorite genres as well as the colorful cast. This was a great addition to last Friday's fright night. Careful! It might just take a bite out of your funny bone.
