Philip and his two best friends, Meatball and Conrad, are genuine nerds. Fellow students, parents, teachers - everybody picks on them. Nonetheless, Philip's wet dreams focus on his classmate "Uschi", a highly erotic blonde. The problem is that his "dream girl" only likes winners and that her boyfriend is the arrogant Wolf, captain of the football team and son of very rich parents. One night, Philip, Meatball and Conrad are invited by Rebecca and her gothic friends to a midnight voodoo ritual at the local cemetery. The ritual - complete with "real Zombie Ashes" - is supposed to instantly turn them into cool dudes but nothing happens. On their way home, the "cool dudes" crash their old car into a tree. They wake up in the local morgue, all with a little yellow note on their toe. Much to their surprise, they feel smarter, stronger and better than ever... except maybe for their appetite for raw meat and their hard drinking habit.
