Independent Swedish horror comedy “American Burger” has taken it’s cause to crowd funding site Indiegogo. The film celebrates all that is American cliché in the dark satire that follows a busload of American students off on a grand Eurotrip when they discover that a hamburger meat factory isn’t exactly what they expected. “American Burger” will see a global release in May 2014. Head to the crowd funding page to check out all the cool fandomaniac rewards for supporters.
“American Burger” is directed by Bonita Drake and Johan Bromander. The film stars Liam Macdonald, Benjamin Brook, Aggy Kuk, Gabriel Freilich, Ben Thornton, Fredrik Hiller, Madeleine Borg, Lena Bengtson, Hanna Nygren, Charlie Petersson, Hjalmar Strid.

A bus load of American students, all jocks, cheerleaders and nerds, are on a culture trip in Europe when they stumble upon a mysterious Hamburger stand in the deep European woods, selling 100% American Burgers. A visit to the Burger Factory behind the stand, renders them trapped in this unknown territory, and they are about to realize that European notion of American Hamburgers is terrifyingly different from what they're used to... The road trip descends into a battle for survival as Americans are treated as cows. Who's going to end up in the slaughterhouse? Will the nerds ever get to score with the cheerleaders? Cliques are formed... Strategies are made... And in the midst of it all they learn a thing or two about friendship, survival, consumerism, horny teenage urges and, perhaps most importantly, to never visit a fast-food restaurant ever again. And the nerds somehow end up having the... Best. Summer. Ever.
