Rammbock: Berlin Undead: Zombie of the Week

Posted by Grey Friday, May 13, 2011

Billed as the first German zombie film, "Rammbock: Berlin Undead" is our Zombie of the Week.

"GERMANY IS DEAD". As likely as this tagline sounded like it belonged to some WWII propaganda production by the Americans, it is in fact the tagline of Rammbock: Berlin Undead, the horror film billed as the first German zombie film. While that claim remains to be contested, Germany is no lightweight when it comes to horror films. From Murnau's original Nosferatu in 1927, its 1979 remake by Werner Herzog, 1987's NEKRomantik, its 1991 sequel, 2008's queer horror film, Otto; or Up with Dead People, to Uwe Boll's Alone in the Dark (a truly horror epic in so many ways).

In Rammbock: Berlin Undead, the protagonist finds himself in the middle of a literally dead city, facing an endless horde of undead creatures the likes of Danny Boyle's 24 Days Later's splinting zombies.

Here's the official synopsis of the film:

Just when Michael arrives in Berlin to visit his ex-girlfriend Gabi, a terrible virus starts spreading across the city at a rapid pace, turning people into mindless homicidal maniacs. Much to Michael’s concern, Gabi’s not home; instead, he meets Harper, a teenage plumber’s apprentice at work in her apartment block. Together, they manage to barricade themselves when raging hordes of infected people swarm the building. Surrounded by these thirsty zombies, Michael and Harper have their hands full to survive – and it will take all of their ingenuity to make their way out to try and find Gabi.

And here's the trailer of the film, which is currently screening twice a week through May at two AMC theaters as part of Bloody Disgusting Selects and AMC Independent's NIGHT TERRORS series.

And the sombre, more moody German trailer.

Here are some of the posters from the film.
