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.
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.
Otherwise known as the film with the greatest tag line in film history.
It's a tagline so good ("Ein! Zwei! Die!") that it in itself was persuasive enough to have me seek this out. In fact, I hadn't heard of it before I saw an advert for the DVD of it on Eurosport of all places as it went straight to DVD over here. But as zombie films go, it does the right thing in not playing hard and fast with zombie film 'rules' and actually has some fun with them.
I hate film referencing stuff within films, which is perhaps one of the main reasons I hate the Scream series (fuck Kevin Williamson, basically),…
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!
As much as I want to love this film I just can't. Yes it has some bonkers Nazi zombie kill scenes with over the top gratuitous violence which I do quite enjoy but I found the overall pacing of the film quite slow, with what seemed like an overly long build up to the Zombie mayhem where nothing much happens, time that could have been better served for character development.
I did like the look of the zombies in the sense thry slmost appeared to have been plucked right out of a black and white movie.
This film is probably best viewed whilst intoxicated surrounded by blood thirsty horror fans who are purely watching for the kill.
Film#9 of Hoop-tober 3
Not sure if it was due to the pacing or the dubbing but I wasn't that in to Dead Snow...up until the film geek meets his sudden and gruesome demise, then it becomes a lot of fun.
Completely insane and over the top, Snow Boarders vrs Nazi Zombies
Good fun Euro horror trash
A slow start, but once it gets going it's bloody fun.
It started out kinda like "Evil Dead" but Norwegian and with Nazi Zombies.. but by the second act was more a free for all of ideas. Overall: campy, moderately gorey, and pretty fun.
a lot more pleasurable than it ought to be, but there we are
It may not be the highest of quality, but it's absurdity and cheese make it a fun time, and sometimes that's all I really care about.
Has a very rocky start with a painfully boring build up and boring characters, but picks up superbly in the final act.
Good: the zombie designs and makeup
Bad: everything else...
