AUSTRIA | 90 minutes | 2019

After a fatal accident on a tourist bus, Karin returns as an undead spook to a rural Austrian village with a dark Nazi past. Absurdly hilarious, this over-the-top zombie romp comes complete with doppelgängers, Syrian refugees and grotesque feasts. Die Kinder Der Toten is equal parts heimatfilme and amateur horror flick, a silent film shot in Super 8, a theatre/performance/film/literature hybrid freely adapted from the eponymous novel by Nobel laureate Elfriede Jelinek.
CANADIAN PREMIERE.

"An aesthetic surprise, shot in deliciously grainy Super-8 footage, set to Wolfgang Mitterer’s bizarro-folksy score and sound designer Matz Müller’s thoroughly brilliant soundscape, in which background murmuring and the succulent noises of chewing and slurping are intensified in the strict absence of spoken dialogue." Variety
