Product Description

With a car packed full of ski equipment and enough beer to fuel their escape from everyday life eight medical students head out on their Easter vacation. Isolated in the snowy hills the group begins to realize they came to the wrong resort, as deep in the hills lay an unthinkable evil. Gory, disturbing and brilliant … get ready for the horror comedy of the year!

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: Norwegian ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Featurette, Interactive Menu, Making Of, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Chomp-chomp, zip-zip go the Nazi zombies in "Dead Snow," a self-consciously outlandish horror flick about an army of restless and neatly uniformed undead haunting some woods in contemporary Norway. Set in a remote winter wonderland, presumably to accentuate the vivid contrast between all the dazzling white snow and the copious splashes and splatters of red (screams also sound louder in muffled silence), the story involves a group of disposable medical students whose vacation turns into a generic gorefest. As a director, Tommy Wirkola, who wrote the irrelevant screenplay with Stig Frode Henriksen, doesn't just hit every horror beat; he pounds it to an indistinguishable pulp. As is often the case with movies of this type, the real stars are the special-effects team, which does some admirably disgusting work with ribbons of intestines and a brain that plops out of a ripped-open skull with surprising delicacy. ...Dead Snow ( Død snø )

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Horror 3 Sep 2009
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Every now and then a film comes along that is really good, and this is one of those. Unfortunately the horror genre is full of dross these days and so it is really good when something like this comes along. What makes it even better is that this didn't come out of Hollywood or Japan, but our neighbours Norway (those people who send us a Christmas tree for Piccadilly Circus each year).

This film is definitely tongue in cheek, and a great parody of the genre, especially of The Living Dead. The humour is dark, which I always love and there are loads of blood and guts. A group of medical students decide to head away for the Easter period to a remote cabin and have a relaxing break. What should be a nice relaxing time of drinking and sex just isn't going to happen, because suddenly they run into a regiment of Nazi Storm Trooper zombies. Cue people being torn apart, and zombies being cut up. If you like something that is different and is going to make you laugh you will love this. With such things as hanging off a cliff face with zombie guts as your rope this is something that has been well thought out, and is well acted. The location shots with all the snow add something to this, really bringing home the desolation and isolation of the group of hapless students. There is no nudity, before you ask, but there is a fantastic scene where a girl is having sex with a bloke, whilst he is sitting on the outside toilet after going out for a dump, also this has the beautiful Charlotte Frogner in it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous but fun 15 April 2011
By Mr. P. Johnson VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What more needs to be said about Nazi zombies on the prowl in modern day Scandinavia? Students careless enough to go to a remote cottage for a weekend of fun in the snow, get more than they bargained for when they attract the attention of a group of Nazi zombies who have been terrorising the area since World War 2. It is very silly but great fun. The gore is delivered full-on and the mutilations and deaths are often laugh out loud gruesome. It is sold cheap, so you can enjoy it for a bargain price. Don't expect too much and you will not be disappointed. Definitely better than you would expect.

Norwegian film makers get it. This is how to make a cool movie; balance the humor and horror, special effects that don't over power the movie, and most importantly: actors that care what they are doing and do it well!. The story revolves around a bunch of medical students getting away for some rest and relaxation during the Easter break. Unknown to them, they've set up camp at the absolute wrong place. Back in the day, evil Nazi's used these hills for an escape route or safe haven way back when, and it's said that this is where they supposedly holed up and eventually died. Well, they ain't all that dead. Our medical students eventually meet these blood-thirsty German maniacs and the red stuff starts flowing. A mad dash for survival ensues, and it all ends up being a 'hail' of a lot of fun, there's chainsaw action, decapitations, rope pulling with intestines, axe murders, machine gun concerts and disembowelment. The effects are top-notch in spite of the obvious budgetary restrictions, and the make up art on the zombies is very impressive. The rotting uniformed corpses look quite menacing, especially their leader. The snowy landscapes were beautiful picture to behold, although it's even more amusing to see the white snow color red with blood! Tommy Wirkola is a clearly talented director and hopefully a promising long career awaits him. The flick however isn't perfect as it suffers some from small horror clichés, like dumb decision making. But at the same time, they handle these clichés in a somewhat refreshing manner. Some cheap scare tactics are used early on to get you on edge, but those are barely used later on, when violence and creative gore take hold. Dead Snow really surprised me. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining 24 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Liked the sound of this film based on the Amazon reviews so took a punt, despite being a little concerned that the subtitles might detract from the overall experience. Happy to say I was wrong. As you might expect in a zom com, there's little talking during the action parts so no chance of missing anything whilst reading the subtitles and for some reason much of the dialogue seems funnier when read rather than spoken. Genuinely makes you jump in places but overall very entertaining and funny. A worthy addition to any collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars SUBTITLED GORY FEST. 1 Mar 2013
By BUBS.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
first thing this film is from Norway so has English subtitles for you to read ,if you don't already know . the film does not take itself seriously and there are a few fun moments during its course ,but there are numerous gory ,scary moments along the way ,for the budget price that this can be picked up for its well worth adding to your horror collection ,in a way reading the subtitles draw you in that little bit further and you get even more jumpy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A daft but fun DVD 14 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this movie. It starts off like so many nordic horror movies with usual team of horny guys and girls heading out for a snowboarding weekend in the wilds of nowhere. Initially, it follows the usual formula and you do not see who is behind the attacks but about half way through it really kicks in and it becomes one of the best (and daftest) horror comedies I have seen for a long time. Plenty of blood and gore as the movie heads towards its conclusion but also a great deal of fun and some real laugh out loud moments. Nothing new but a welcome addition to my dvd collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good for those who like to watch bad films while drinking.
The one star is for the quality of the film - which was terrible, not for my enjoyment - which was tremendous.

Surely a staple of bad-film-nights countrywide.
