Friends often ask me to recommend indie horror films on Netflix Instant. (American Netflix, sorry!) Now I can just send…
Eins, Zwei, Die!
Eight medical students on a ski trip to Norway discover that Hitler's horrors live on when they come face to face with a battalion of zombie Nazi soldiers intent on devouring anyone unfortunate enough to wander into the remote mountains where they were once sent to die.
Director Tommy Wirkola's Norwegian comical zombie splatter flick featuring Nazi Zombies no less is wicked good fun! Relentless gore, guts, graphic violence, unbridled and unabashed Nazi Zombie mayhem!
You knew you were in for something very special when the opening scene presents one of the most memorable run for your life chase scenes in zombie cinematic history by its clever use of the whimsical classic "In the Hall of the Mountain King" as the background music!
The fight of your life scene went beyond the realm of over-the-top, it went into a whole new stratosphere with its insane balls to the wall grossly grotesque bloodletting and flesh ripping action sequences!
A Norwegian horror film that wears its inspirations proudly on its blood-soaked sleeve, Tommy Wirkola's "Dead Snow" is an unabashedly gory and unashamedly playful piece of work. Focusing on a group of twentysomethings who spend a fateful ski trip at a cabin in the snow-covered woods, the film is a relentless thriller with a sly sense of humor and over-the-top sensibilities. It is a fun, disgusting, and completely absorbing gore fest.
Beginning by echoing and referring to horror classics of the past, the film's team of protagonists set up shop in a remote cabin. After an exposition-ripe warning that reflects other such filmic moments, the group spends the rest of the film tormented by an undead army of Nazis who…
The film chronicles the odyssey of a group of seven friends in a Norwegian ski station that is isolated by the snow. When they find and steal a chest full of valuable medals from posthumous German officers in their cabin, they inadvertently raise an army of Nazi zombies who want their precious relics back.
Tommy Wirkola, who is obviously a big fan of the genre, revolutionizes the world of the horrifying zombie comedies by turning them into a bunch of creepy Nazis, I mean, that's clearly something. Initially, I thought the the Norwegian film wouldn't survive to its general premise as it started to seem like a traditional cabin horror film where the main characters are haunted by strange creatures…
After a weak and cliche ridden start, this film really comes into its own in the final act with some totally bonkers and fantastic zombie gore.
Definitely the best outing in the Nazi + preposition + location genre so far.
Don't get bitten... He said don't get bitten...
Wait, isn't your grandfather half Jewish? You think they would recruit someone half Jewish?
Oh Jesus. What a line. Screw history. Forget the 6 million deaths. Dead Snow knows how to have a laugh in spite of itself. It knows what its doing. And it has no shame.
I only wish that more films were this confident. I wish more movies had balls half the size of Dead Show. While it isn't the first film of its type and there are countless films with more gore and violence, Dead Snow is still an impressive and unique experience if not a little flawed in the end. It is, after all, a slightly low…
This Nazi Zombie horror comedy features a truly stomach churning scene!
A hot chick goes and has sex with a guy in the toilet after he's had a shit and sucks his fingers and he hasn't even washed his hands!
Nazi zombies... It has to happen sooner or later. Some entertaining scenes but fairly forgettable overall.
Sure it has zombie nazis in the snow, but where's the story?
I think this was a funny concept but not for a full movie; a short maybe.
A lot of intestine gags.
Bloody gory, Bloody funny, Bloody great. One of the best zombie nazi movies ever.
Uneven stab at a fun premise. The first half of the film is spent with our main heroes doing very typical slasher film type situations. They're in the mountains, they're drinking, they're finding ancient gold, they're getting killed off one by one. It's all par for the usual course, to the point of being rather rote. However, by the time we get to see the actual premise of nazi zombies reeking havoc, it's a hell of a lot of fun to see all of the clever gags on display and how the nazi zombies operate.
A true modern homage to the classics of splatter horror. Love this film.

Better than evil dead.
This film not only succeeds, but excels in its quest to create a fun and enjoyable visual experience for the audience. Dead Snow does not take itself seriously in the slightest bit and it is refreshing to watch a film in which all parties involved seem to be having a great time.
If you're looking for a fun film to watch while intoxicated, with friends, and/or both, Dead Snow is the film for you!
I love when a movie turns a dumb premise (Nazi zombies!) or an overdone cliche (a bunch of young people in a secluded cabin!) into something awesome.
Contains every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the letterboxd database.
If there is any…
We're about half way through the Underrated Series and have finally reached one of the big genres. I'm expecting lots…
