Dead Snow

Død snø (original title)

Directed by Tommy Wirkola

Starring Vegar Hoel, Stig Frode Henriksen, Charlotte Frogner, Jenny Skavlan, Jeppe Beck Laursen, Lasse Valdal.

Release Date June 19, 2009

Splatterfest with a touch of black comedy, Dead Snow is a manic horror movie set in the Swiss mountains where a group of college students are attacked by...Nazi zombies. That's right, it had to happen sooner or later. Dead Snow is a zombie film that gleefully embraces the horror genre so much that one character points out how many horror movies have the "cell phone doesn't work rule" right when it happens on screen. At times, the film does stray from trying to be too gory dark humor and gets into more serious moments, but then there's a scene where a zombie gets its' head smashed in, gooey brains and all. Not a perfect zombie movie, but an entertaining one.

Rating: * * * * of 5
