German webseries ‘Viva Berlin!’ bleeds stylish zombie action
All the horror of a zombie series with plenty of laughs.
BY SAM GUTELLE
There’s a glut of zombie fiction available across the media landscape, but despite all the shows, books, and movies about the undead, there’s still room for additional well-made entries to the genre. Viva Berlin!, from creator Moritz Mohr, is a sharp entry to the zombie canon that executes its simple premise with undeniable flair.
Viva Berlin! establishes the typical rules of zombie fiction: There is an infection affecting the majority of the local population, the remaining survivors must band together to protect themselves, and anyone who gets bitten immediately transforms into a shambling, bloodthirsty freak of nature. Viva Berlin!, available in German with English subtitles, adds a dash of comedy to its proceedings, creating a surprisingly light-hearted tone for the show.
When the action starts, however, Viva Berlin! is all business. Mohr shoots his fight scenes skillfully, and genre fans—as well as general thrill seekers—will be satisfied. If you’re at all into zombie fiction, the episodes of Viva Berlin! available on YouTube are worth checking out.
