Movie Review: Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies

Could you fight off zombies with a snowboard? In January 2017, three friends strapped on their boards and tried to find out.

Directing this 78 minute comedy/horror is Dominik Hartl.

Some of the cast is: Oscar Dyekjaer Giese as Josh, Gabriela Marcinkova as Branka, Laurie Calvert as Steve, Margarete Tiesel as Rita, Patricia Aulitzky as Hilde, Kari Rakkola as Chekov and Karl Fischer as Franz.

Three snowboarders find themselves stuck on top of a mountain when a local entrepreneur unwittingly starts a zombie outbreak. Friends Josh, Branka and Steve's snowboarding skills will be put to the test as they fight off the growing horde of flesh eaters and try to find a way off the mountain. Unfortunately, the zombies aren't the only dangerous things they need to worry about...

Every now and then you see a movie title and you just know you have to see it. This... was one of those titles. So when I got the opportunity to screen this Austrian zombie flick I jumped on it. As it turned out, it was totally worth it.

Dread Central needs our support!
