Movie Info

When three of the biggest losers at Frederich Nietzsche High are killed in a tragic car accident and revived as flesh-eating zombies, gym class will never be the same in this outrageous horror comedy that combines the humor of John Hughes with the gore-drenched humor of Dead Alive. Philip, Konrad, and Weener are the kind of students who are likely to spend the majority of their high-school careers stuffed in lockers and handing over their lunch money. When the local goth clique botches a voodoo ceremony and Nietzsche High's three most laughable pencil necks are all killed as a result, the stage is set for one of the most bizarre encounters with the living dead in cinematic history. Philip, Konrad, and Weener are back, but these days they seem to be decomposing at an alarming rate. At a school where popularity is the key to survival, three undead dorks are about to discover that death is only the beginning of their radical social makeover. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Outside of surface details involving flesh eating and body rot, these zombie stooges look more hung over than dead. This is really a sex comedy with a zombie theme.

As the flagship zom com film for the new age, Night of the Living Dorks is to geek love as "Animal House" was to frat boys.

An obnoxious sex romp that knows just enough about the teen comedy genre to mimic it but not enough to make it worth revisiting, even with this zombie twist.

Night of the Living Dorks is a German spoof film on the zombie genre, and as the title warns, it is pretty dorky. Think: American Pie meets Dawn of the Dead.

Audience Reviews for Die Nacht der lebenden Loser (Night of the Living Dorks)

best viewed in the original German, with subtitles as needed. great example of horror/comedy. be prepared, it is an indie film, so don't expect a Hollywood quality film, but it is fantastic nonetheless.

'Die Nacht der lebenden Loser' is not a real Horror-Movie, rather a Horror-Comedy-Movie with more comedy in it than horror. It is a decent movie combining comedy with typical zombie images. It is not hilarious but it has some good funny moments. Very enjoyable!!!

Cute, juvenile zombie comedy that riffs on teenage angst films. All over the place in terms of jokes, but consistently amusing enough to keep watching.
