This is the fifth Nazi Zombie movie That has been made, and it’s one of the better ones. Of course if you are not a horror fan then you wouldn’t like any of them. And the effects of the three earlier films can’t compete with the last two but that doesn’t matter really. The first was the classic ‘shock waves” (1976) followed by the french low budget effort “zombie lake” (1980) and jess franco’s ‘oasis of the zombies” (1983) and then by the excellent ‘outpost” (2007) and now by “Dead Snow” (2009). This movie has far more gore than the three early efforts; but that was different era; although “outpost” has more interesting characters than “dead snow” which is your typical in the know young people who are the target of the Nazi Zombies wrath. The acting is very good though and this is a professional movie.

Unlike the first time efforts of the many ultra low budget horror zombie flicks shot awkwardly and sometimes on video tape.

We are told that they killed villagers and then had to battle their way into the mountains when the vengeful Norwegians came for them. They died there and have been there ever since. This movie is part ghost story in that the zombies are protecting their loot rather than just killing people for no reason. And that’s a good twist to this very good horror movie. The film has a english dubbed soundtrack (in stereo) and the original Norwegian soundtrack (with english subtitles in 5.1) to choose from as well. The best thing about the more modern flicks (outpost and this one) is that the movies prints look fantastic and are without blemishes. The three older movies while decent prints needed some cleaning up. This is a great entry into the Nazi Zombie genre and it’s well shot and has a ‘evil dead” type of humour to it which is fun enough. This movie is good enough to be made in America which shows how far some low budget filmmakers have come since the early 1980’s. Not that “zombie lake” doesn’t have it’s own low budget charms; it’s not on this level and couldn’t be. So a hearty sieg Zombie to this

solid fun horror feature.

Hands down one of my all time favorite movies! The latest offering in the micro zombie nazi drama and its a good one, particularly on Blu Ray. A group of Norwegian (yes, its in that language subtited in English) kids head out to the mountains for some skiing and fun, only to find themselves the appealing target of nazi zombies. This is a fun movie. Its a horror/comedy, with somewhat equal emphasis on both genres. Where Shawn of the Dead was almost exclusively comical, this movie does attempt to pull off a few good scares, and some are actually pretty effective, albeit mild. It also does a good job of slowly unveiling the monsters similar to Alien; it takes a while before we fully see one, and the anticipation is well structured. The comic elements are good too; they’re mostly not over the top, but good and will likely appeal to a wide viewer audience (i.e., not just those who find the sophmoric humor of american pie worthwhile). Some great scenery too; its filmed in an absolutely beautiful set of snowy mountains. It is also worth noting this movie presents a slightly modified version of a zombie. Similar to how the new Friday the 13th turned Jason into a hybrid olympian sprinter/weight lifter, so too these zombies are quite amped up and able to hunt down their prey with impressive alacrity. Don’t expect to see Shock Waves-like zombies; these guys are out for the quick kill. Further, the Blu Ray audio/video content is outstanding. It has a surprisingly good video quality and ranks near the top of my collection in that rating. Very highly recommended.

Nazi-zombie horror isn’t a new idea. For decades, horror filmmakers have attempted to capitalize on the greatest tragedy in modern history by giving the dirty Nazis their comeuppance. . . in undead form. The only bad thing about the cinematic destruction of Nazi brains is that most of these Nazombie flicks are just plain awful. The French, for example, did it a couple times with appalling flicks like ‘Oasis of the Zombies’ and ‘Zombie Lake’. I guess they were still angry about losing Paris so they didn’t even want to give Nazombies the benefit of a quality movie. A rare diamond buried in the pile of rotting Nazi flesh, however, is the new Norwegian zomcom ‘Død snø’ aka ‘Dead Snow’.

In ‘Dead Snow’ a group of twentysomething medical students head up to a mountain cabin for an Easter vacation ski trip. After only a short while, the inevitable happens: A crazy old man barges his way into their lives and bores them with a ridiculous tale of evil Nazi curses and stolen treasure. When have crazy old men in horror movies ever been right? Not too long after that, those wacky Nazis show up seeking the gold that, well, wasn’t really theirs to begin with, but they still want it back anyway.

With films like ‘Zombieland’ and ‘Shaun of the Dead’ being released over the past few years, it is very difficult to gain any kind of recognition in the zombie-comedy subgenre since every zomcom will undoubtedly be compared to one or both of them. ‘Dead Snow’, however, can definitely withstand the comparison. From the wicked fun opening scene and all the way through, the Nazombie horror-comedy is hilariously gross and grossly hilarious, it even has some good scares to go with it. From a technical standpoint, Tommy Wirkola’s direction and Matthew Weston’s cinematography very well capture the beauty of the snow-covered mountains, but the shakicam got a bit frustrating in a couple scenes. The gore is fantastic and over-the-top, especially the excellent little ‘Dead-Alive’ moment (maybe to go along with Vegard’s t-shirt). The writing is fresh and well paced, leaving most of the characters one-dimensional enough so that it’s not too much of a worry when they’re executed by the Nazi horde. Sometimes shallow characters are useful. It does have some clichéd elements; but, the film seems self-aware of them, even mentioning a few of them in their references to other films. What will be more frustrating to horror fans than the clichés is the ridiculous statement made about ‘Evil Dead II’ being a higher-budget remake of the original. But, this is neither the time nor place to get into that.

Overall, ‘Død snø’ is a fine addition to the zomcom subgenre. If you want a fun zombie romp with some laughs and scares, check this one out. . . then check out ‘Shock Waves’ for, really, the only other worthwhile Nazombie film.

Final Verdict: 8/10

I was urged to see this by fellow horror fans, and I’m glad I did. It doesn’t have the slickness or vast appeal of a comedy like ZOMBIELAND, but it is plenty gory, very likable and cheerily fast-paced. There are a few cover-your-eyes moments, and some brilliant how-did-they-think-of-that whammies. The story overall is very European, but also happens to some thoroughly modern and Yankified Norwegian med students on vacation. They even quote Indiana Jones. It is worth watching at least twice (if you don’t understand Norwegian), because trying to read the subtitles and not miss the intricate splatterfest on screen can be a challenge.

A woman runs through the snowy wilderness, chased by some unseen threat, as Edvard Grieg’s “In The Hall Of The Mountain King” rises to it’s climax, which effectively illustrates her increasing distress and danger level.

And so begins Dead Snow, an intense foreign film which only ever slows down to display a little bit of the character’s personalities before the gruesome events occur again. The fact that it is subtitled does not detract anything from one’s enjoyment of the film.

From then on we watch as seven Norwegian med students decide to spend their Easter vacation in an isolated cabin near Oksfjord. While they wait for the main guy’s girlfriend to arrive, who actually owns the cabin, they decide to pass the time by drinking and setting up opportunities for possible hook-ups. The fun is soon spoiled by the arrival of a mysterious stranger, an older man who warns them of the evil history of the area.

It seems that during WWII, a sadistic Nazi commander named Colonel Herzog was in charge of the nearby Naval base, and under his reign the locals were robbed, tortured and murdered for three long years before they decided to exact their revenge. They attacked the Nazi’s while they slept and managed to kill a great number of them. Herzog and many of his soldiers escaped into the frozen woods though, taking with them a fortune in gold, jewelry and coins.

The creepiness of the stranger, who goes nameless, and the fact that Vegard’s girlfriend Sara has still not shown up by morning, leads the students to believe that something is definitely wrong with their vacation destination.

The suspense regarding who gets killed is fairly effective, and should keep you guessing, considering that one character who is absolutely squeamish at the sight of blood is forced to step up and commit brutally violent acts, and is responsible for the most shocking incident in the entire movie. To sum it up, this is one movie will be added to my must-watch list every October, alongside Trick `R’ Treat, Halloween and Friday The 13th Part 3.
