Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies

There’s literally hundreds of zombie movies out, some of which stink out the genre with its foul, rotting stench so strong that the film was probably dead on arrival. With Night of Something Strange, The ReZort, Train to Busan, and Viral all coming out in the same year you could probably make a comprehensive top 10 Zombie films of 2016 alone. Joke titles are a thing too, think Cockneys vs Zombies or Juan of the Dead (even the Cuban film industry are getting on the act) and now we have The Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies…with a distinct lack of lederhosen.
