Dead Snow

Black comedy finds the humour in undead Nazis

Zombies? Yawn. Nazi zombies? Now you’re talking...

A blackly comic, terrifically violent riff on the Evil Dead template, in which a bunch of knowing stereotypes (jock, nerd, bimbo...) holidaying in the Norwegian Alps fight off a horde of undead Jerries with the contents of a shed.

It’s, er, a ‘Reich’ laugh.

      Marshall85, how can you rate a film before you have seen it? By the way, spot on, just like outpost but more snow. Not a bad laugh but the jokes evaporate just after any tension

      BOUGHT THIS MOVIE BASED ON POSITIVE REVIEWS AND IT IS IN FACT ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. IF THIS WAS A BRITISH OR AMERICAN FILM IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SLATED. NOT FUNNY, AWFUL ACTING, AWFUL DIRECTION...AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL

      A very, very pleasant surprise. I wasn't expecting too much from this film past a b-grade generic zombie movie, however I loved it. It's a great example of what some loving care can still do with the zombie genre. It does what many American films struggle to do - first, the characters are immediately engaging (funny and likeable). Its knowing without being annoying, for example the movie references don’t grate or feel forced. And most importantly the gore is brilliantly gory, and the humour is brilliantly funny. Essentially Dead Snow is the Norwegian Shaun of the Dead, and that is high praise indeed.

      As bassthing said - a very, very pleasant surprise! If you expect a "really scary" kind of horror film, you'll be disappointed, off course, because this is a zombie flick, and as such it has everything it needs. Hollywood hasn't made a good movie, of this sort, in decades. Excellent idea, nice makeup, great humor...

      Oh, yeah, one more thing - I hope Hollywood won't make a remake of this movie like they made a remake of Spanish "Rec" (US title - "Quarantine"). "Rec" was good as it was. Remake was absolutely unnecessary! What's wrong with the Americans? Why can't they watch a foreign-language film? Is most of them not literate so they can't read subtitles? Or what...?

      This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. It is pure garbage, the acting is terrible and the zombies are just stupid and far-fetched, zombies don't use weapons or climb tree's, they're not suppose to run. are they. the plans that the characters come up with are c**p. they often run around like idiots playing tag, half the time they're hiding instead of fighting. this is defiantly a movie you should avoid.
