| And the snow on the mountain shall run red in their wake...
What would you get if you took elements from "The Thing", "Shaun of the Dead", "Cabin Fever" and "Night of the Living Dead" and mixed it all together? Well, I would say that you'd end up with something like "Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies".

This is a zombie comedy that takes place in the Alps. Here you have two snowboarders and one of their girlfriends stuck at a mountainside tavern, unable to reach the bottom of the mountain and thus not being able to get to transportation, as night falls upon the mountain. However, an experiment to create fake snow has unleashed a deadly infection which turns people into a ravaging zombies, and the night has just begun...

Right, this is a fairly straight forward, albeit a bit too generic storyline. Sure, it was entertaining, especially because of its originality. But it just didn't really bring anything new or exciting to the zombie genre, and that was sort of a hindrance to the movie.

The acting in "Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies" was quite alright. They had a group of fairly diverse talents on the cast list, so there is bound to be something for just about everyone here.

As for the special effects, which are all-important to a zombie movie. I will say that the special effects team behind "Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies" stepped up to their task and delivered quite well. The effects were good, and the zombies looked good. And there was just enough gore here as well to keep most gorehounds happy as well.

"Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies" did suffer from being a quite generic zombie movie. And by that I mean that you will not see anything here that you haven't seen in other zombie movies already. On that account, the movie lacked creative thinking, and that permeated into all layers of the movie. However, don't get me wrong here, "Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies" is still an enjoyable and watchable movie, it just didn't stand out in the genre.

I really enjoyed the zombie deer, they were hilarious, and they looked quite cool as well. I think it was a real shame that they didn't opt to utilize them more and incorporate them more into the movie and give them more screen time.

"Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies" scores a mediocre five out of ten stars rating, because of its generic nature. It was a shame that they failed to bring anything new and refreshing to the zombie genre, because "Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies" really had a bigger potential.
