Directed by Domenik Hartl, Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies takes place in the scenic Alpine mountains of Austria.
The snow-capped white scenery makes for the perfect backdrop in this blood soaked zombie horror comedy starring Laura Calvert, Gabriela Marcinkova, and Margarete Tiesel.
Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies begins with a scientific experiment gone astray, and a malfunctioning snow making machine spewing out a zombie breeding green liquid contaminant affecting all those who contact it.
When three friends on location to do a snowboarding video shoot unknowingly drop in to the secluded ski resort hit by the outbreak, they put themselves dead center in the path of madness.
Steve, his girlfriend Baranka, and Josh bite off more than they can chew when they lose their sponsorship following an embarrassing mishap, and the trio of snowboarders are left behind in the mountains.
Steve and Baranka split up from Josh and head to the resort’s tavern for directions. There they encounter Rita, the tavern’s bar maid, and a rough and tough no-nonsense straight shooter.
Also affected by the contaminated green ooze in the area are the deer, who’ve been drinking from the compromised cesspool, and are also becoming sick.
Once the undead quickly start closing in on the tavern and it’s patrons, the snowboarders team up with the heavily armed Rita and must use unconventional methods to defeat the swarm of deranged maniacs.
Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies is a comedy that falls somewhere between Shaun of the Dead and a cheesy ski movie from the 80’s, but there’s also plenty of bloodshed and gore that should satisfy your appetite for violence.
When Josh himself falls victim to the outbreak, Steve and Baranka must rely on their superior snowboarding skills to save the day. The couple unleash a gnarly exhibition of snowboarding stunts creating a bloody body count of carnage and mayhem.
With no escape in sight off of the snowy mountain, and zombies on the rampage at every turn, surviving through the night won’t be an easy task for anyone. It’s all downhill from there.
Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies officially hits the slopes on Friday the 13th, and will be available in select theatres and on demand 1/13/17. You can follow the film on their facebook page and on twitter for more.
