First, and most important, what strain of Zombie are these "Loser" Zombies? These are the voodoo created, dorky, stoner high school variety. Aside from when Konrad gets his glowing eyes and blood lust, these are mostly cognizant zombies. They have super zombie strength and x-ray vision, but are slowly decomposing and becoming victims to their hunger for flesh. This has the "Teen Wolf" vibe where being a dork makes them outcasts, but being confident monsters makes them popular. This film has a very 80's vibe, in that respect. Not much killing or fear from these zombies, but Zombie Konrad gives us some good gore. Wurt Zombie does a good job as a stoner zombie, but he still can't top Seth Green and Elden Henson as stoner zombies in the unfairly maligned "Idle Hands". Sill, I give this a decent overall zombie score of: 6/10
The gore is pretty good in this one. Not a lot of it, but a decent enough amount for a movie that is trying to be a comedy. The microwaved foot is a great gag, so for that I will give a gore score of 6/10.
Gratuitous sexism and nudity is in the mid-range. The goth girl is supplied with sexy goth lingerie for a ritual. The "hot" girl (who is not very attractive) takes her top off in the teen-sex-comedy "nerd is going to score in the bedroom" kind of way. The best is when Zombie Konrad suddenly gets x-ray vision, and can see through a girl's pants. After that he decides it's dinner time. A gratuitous sexism and nudity score of 6/10.
The movie was not very boring.Read more ›
So, on to the movie. Sure, it's simple and predictable. It's a teen zombie movie, it's supposed to be. But it hits all the right notes, and the characters are entertaining and engaging. For zombies.
I especially liked the cemetary scene with the frozen chicken, et. al.
What makes this movie different from the normal zombie layout, is the fact that the zombie crisis happens to teenagers who also have the stresses of school, parents, cliques, and sex to deal with. When the teenagers are accidentally turned into zombies, they try to find a solution that will turn them back into normal mortals. All the while, they are still trying to keep up with school, teachers, their peers, parties, drugs, and sex as if being a zombie is just another problem to add to their teenage angst. But as they find that being zombies has a downside, they also find that it can also have it's upside. They just might be able to cross off some of their issues before they decompose completely.
If you buy this cd, I suggest watching the special features. There are many more laughs to be had in the special features. As the cover of the movie says 'cult fiction', it is obvious while watching, that this is a classic. I hope you enjoy it.
In watching this film, I'm not sure I describe it better than the press release information..
Philip and his best friends Konrad and Weener are the three biggest losers at Frederich Nietzsche High. But when an inept voodoo ceremony by the local Goth clique leads to a fatal car accident, this trio of über-dorks returns as indestructible zombies with an insatiable appetite for human flesh, wild parties and gym class revenge. Can Philip now score with the hottest girl in school before he decomposes? Is there any personal dismemberment that can't be fixed with a stapler? And even if an antidote can be found, will it damper the uninhibited highlife of the undead? There's tortured bullies, wild parties, virgin blood, sex, drugs, rock & roll and more in this international horror.
Yep, it's all there. You can't miss the stench of C class horror that is so desperately appealing that it must be watched. But that's what Cult classics are about. If you can't tell your friends how good it was, then it's not worth watching!

Imagine something like “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” or some other typical teen comedy with all the usual jocks, stoners, Goths, high status kids at the top and the geeks with pocket protectors then throw in Zombies and you get the gist of this German comedy. It works too. The kids attend the German high school Frederich Nietzsche Gymnasium. Heh heh.
Tino Mewes plays the head nerd, too shy to make a move on his childhood friend-now beautiful and blossoming next door and just waiting for him. He of course has eyes for an unobtainable top tier girl with the usual handsome jock jerk boyfriend. When the Goth girl (Collen Frenandes) and her pals invoke some Zombie ashes, three dorks (Mewes, Manuel Cortez and Thomas Schmieder) are Zombiefied.
These are fully functioning Zombies who not only have gained super strength but also have x-ray vision which they use, remember these are 17 year old boys, to look at girls butts. “Night of the Living Dorks” has not just imagination and enthusiasm but competence rarely seen in Zombie flicks. The production company, Constantin Films, has a long history in the film business, making movies in German and in English. It has produced such famous films as “The Never Ending Story”, “The Name of the Rose” but for our purposes much more importantly, Constantin Films made the “Resident Evil” films. In short, “Night of the Living Dorks” is a major production by a large and successful film production company. It has the professional level in the technical departments that we always seek and only occasionally find. That alone sets this film above the usual stagger of the horde.Read more ›
