Product Overview

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 uber-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-comedy hit written and directed by Mathias Dinter that Film Threat calls "the Weird Science of zombie movies...a riot from start to finish!"

Review There`s comes a time in every dork's life when he/she must put down the twenty-sided die, leave the Star Wars Trivial Pursuit game behind and become a flesh-eating zombie...Night of the Living Dorks is about a group of friends -- three of them, actually -- who couldn`t score a date with a corpse. They`re too skinny, too ugly and way too dorky. One day, these hand jobs meet up with some acquaintances in a graveyard to participate in a satanic ritual, and it's this moment that ultimately leads them to become zombies...The only real complaint I had with Night of the Living Dorks was the fact that it`s foreign, which really isn't anything against the film. The thing is - you really don`t want to read subtitles in a comedy, because a lot of the humor comes from timing. But when you watch the English-dubbed version, the dialogue doesn`t match with what the people onscreen are saying, and I did find that rather annoying. But like I said, that's not really anything against the film...Overall, I had a great time with Night of the Living Dorks and imagine most others would, too. But be warned; if you don`t like comedies in the vein of American Pie and maybe Euro Trip, then you won`t dig this flick at all. If you`re interested though, I would definitely recommend you give it your dime and your time.

Review A zombie comedy that knocks 'em dead with offbeat genre-ribbing humor, "Night of the Living Dorks" is a high- school-set romp that could pass for an American flick if the dialogue were in English. Pleasingly imaginative within the parameters of the form, pic is a guilty pleasure whose title accurately conveys the silly, irreverent tone...Opening scene, set in Haiti, shows a textbook zombie getting blasted to smithereens by an angry islander, then reduced to ashes in an urn. Three months later that urn makes its way to Germany and the denizens of Frederich Nietzsche High School...Philip (Tino Mewes) lives with his parents across the street from Rebecca (Collien Fernandes), a pretty lass into Goth trappings...Philip's two best friends are fearless hotshot Weener (Manuel Cortez) and Konrad (Thomas Schmieder)...When the three young men plow into a tree they wake up dead. While a taste for human flesh is problematic, it's cool having superhuman strength and being impervious to pain when it comes to trouncing the school's rich preppies at rugby...Gross-out humor is mostly on the sweet side -- despite creative use of a staple gun to reattach certain body parts -- and the script boasts an appealing level of invention right though the frantic finale. Clean, unfussy lensing and a smattering of special effects add up to a tight tech package.

Absolute Horror excellent synthesis of the zombie movies we all love and the teen movies that we begrudingly tolerate.
Ain't It Cool News I can't recommend this film enough...It really is that cool!
Arrow in the Head American Pie + Night of the Living Dead = a pretty funny movie.
