There has been nothing on my TV but the Winter Olympics for the last 2 weeks…so why not just go with it and watch a movie full of Snowboarders? I’m talking Mountain Dew, baby!
Obviously, I was drawn in by the title of the movie – Lederhosen Zombies! I was disappointed to find there was exactly ONE Lederhosen Zombie, although there were quite a few Dirndl Zombies. Attack of the Dirndl Zombies just doesn’t have the same ring to it?
I guess there could be hidden lederhosen underneath the guy’s Snowboarder gear…devil’s advocate, ya know. And yes, I said Snowboarder gear. The film is Snowboarders vs. Zombies. Not just people, there are also zombie deer. Those zombie deer are fucking horrifying!
I noticed a few nods to classic horror deaths. Death by Espresso Machine was previously seen in Leprechaun 2. There was a nice Lost Boys moment as a lederhosen zombie was impaled on antlers, with our “hero” quoting, “Nice rack.” There’s a push snowblower scene that’s awesomely reminiscent of the lawnmower scene in Dead Alive. Dead Alive is a good yardstick for the level of gore and ridiculousness in Lederhosen Zombies – it’s at THAT level. It’s fucking great.
My husband warned that it’s a dumb waste of time, but I enjoyed the Lederhosen-less Zombies. It would be great for a family movie night.
