Plot[edit]

During a time in the near future, Gothenburg has been invaded by zombies. The police are powerless and a team of German zombie hunters are called in to solve the problem and clean up the city and find out what is causing the zombie epidemic. On their way through the streets of Gothenburg, they run into several obstacles. For example, they come across an Italian assassin and some Swedish reporters on the wrong side of the barricades.

Soundtrack[edit]

Over 21 bands contributed to the soundtrack, among them Dark Funeral and Sturm Café. Sturm Café's song "Die Zombiejäger" was written for the film and is used as a main theme throughout the movie. "Godhate" by Dark Funeral is played in the opening credits and "Related Skin" by Red Cell is played during the final battle and over the closing credits. Aardia wrote the original score. A soundtrack was released featuring several of the more prominent songs. There were some controversy when it turned out the producers did not have the right to release the songs on a soundtrack CD.[citation needed] Wolcher was not prosecuted however.

''''Fredagen den 14 oktober blir det zombiefest på Panora i Malmö. Jonas Wolchers Die Zombiejäger visas och efter det blir det klubb och konsert med två av banden från filmens soundtrack.''Italic text

En GGH, (Gothenburg Gore Horror) actionfylld skräckkomedi inspelad i Göteborg. I en inte alltför avlägsen framtid har Göteborg invaderats av zombies. Polisen står maktlös och en grupp tyska zombiejägare kallas in för att lösa problemet och rensa staden från de odöda. På sin väg genom staden stöter de på allt från italienska mördare till svenska reportrar på fel sida av avspärrningarna. Allt medan de försöker ta reda på vad som ligger bakom epidemin.

Filmen har varit under produktion i tre år och kommer nu äntligen att släppas. Även om det finns ett stort intresse i Sverige så har det största intresset kommit från Tyskland där filmen har diskuterats på filmrelaterade webbsidor sedan projektet startade. Andra länder där det finns stort intresse är Danmark, England och stora delar av Asien, främst Thailand och Korea. Filmen är en blandning av klassik zombiefilm, med en stor portion humor, och fartfylld action.''
