Zombie Film Fridays: Dead Snow

Okay, I have to admit that Dead Snow is not one of my favourite zombie movies. It’s a great idea though so you should give it a watch regardless of what I think!

Several friends take to the mountains and shack-up in the wilderness of back-of-beyond to enjoy a little R & R together, their peace is soon interrupted by a mysterious old man, warning them of a local curse that during the German occupation of the local area that these Nazi invaders were brutal and harsh in their methods of control. Telling of the legend of the villager’s revolt that drove them up into the cold, dark mountains where they perished, that is until rumour of their return in the form of zombies, evil Nazi zombies.

My Rating: C+

Interesting Facts: This film’s main trailer shows black-and-white World War II archive footage including battleships, parachuting and a command room featuring Adolf Hitler but this material is not seen in the actual movie; Originally it was going to be called “Rød Snø” (or Red Snow in English), as an homage to the Swedish/Norwegian mini-series with the same name; and The character of Erlend wears a t-shirt prominently featuring the words “Brain Dead” in English (Erlend’s demise at the hands of a zombie is exactly the same as the first zombie kill in the low-budget American film Brain Dead (2007)–the zombie gouges the victim’s eyes and splits the skull in half).

And now it’s time for the trailer!
