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 )

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 ›

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 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 Dead snowy goodness 18 Jun 2012
Format:DVD
If Peter Jackson were Norwegian Dead Snow would surely be the result. Tommy Wirkola has the right idea here, create a zombie movie that doesn't take itself seriously and opts for the intestine-strewn laugh. Seriously, anyone watching a film about Nazi zombies won't be expecting any Oscar nominated script. But that's fine; sometimes you only want a horror flick with the sole aim of gross-out and humour. Thankfully Dead Snow delivers well on both counts.

Plot - for what it's worth - sees bunch of medical students holing-up in a mountain cabin for some R'n'R. Unluckily for them, said mountains are also home to a bunch of bloodthirsty Nazi zombies out for revenge. Anyway, who cares about the plot; show me the innards! Once the films kick off after the first third is when the fun really starts and it enters firmly into the realms of Braindead - right, let's see how much blood-spattered mayhem we can squeeze into the remaining running time.

Highlights include a Skiddoo with mounted Gatling gun, impromptu triumphant auto-dismemberment (nod to Evil Dead 2) with a chainsaw, cranial seperation, and a 'you've got to be kidding me' two-finger salute of an ending.

Watch if you like humorous mindless violence; avoid if you're looking for a meaningful discourse on existentialism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic! 11 Jan 2012
By Clarky
Format:DVD
I had been wanting to see this film for a while, and when I finally bought it, It was certainly not a disappointment. This film is first class; it just works perfectly. The story line can be a bit shoddy in places, but the overall film is an incredible achievement. I have recommended it to all my friends, and will recommend it to anyone who shows interest. Absolutely top class film, loved every minute.
