4.0 out of 5 stars Zombies, Nazis, Blood on Snow... It Doesn't Get Any Better.
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous but fun
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...

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombies, Nazis, Blood on Snow... It Doesn't Get Any Better., 17 April 2010
This review is from: Dead Snow [DVD] (DVD)
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. I wasn't expecting such a fun flick and the characters were all well-fleshed out, the dialogue well-written and funny, the gore aplenty, the horror nods abundant and awesome (Braindead t-shirts?!), and even the score and soundtrack were good. This should become a pretty big hit for horror fans, well I hope so anyways.

3.0 out of 5 stars SUBTITLED GORY FEST., 1 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Snow [DVD] (DVD)
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
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Snow [DVD] (DVD)
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

This review is from: Dead Snow [DVD] (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.

Dead Snow is another classic Norwegian horror movie, its basicly their answer to evil dead and dawn of the dead in a way with loads comic slapstick scenes, and plenty of blood and gore etc, its all out war in the snow with NAZI ZOMBIES! what could be more fun, brilliant! dont let subtitles put you off these films, they are rare treats for horror fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic!, 11 Jan 2012
This review is from: Dead Snow [DVD] (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Snow, Probably one of the best Zombie films I own., 9 Sep 2011
This review is from: Dead Snow [DVD] (DVD)
I love Zombie films and my DVD collection is probably made up of about 70% of them. Other than Zombieland, Dawn and Shaun of the Dead, Day of the Dead etc, Dead Snow is up there as been one of my ultimate faves. It has everything you need in a zombie film to make it worth watching, including humour and gore and a few jumps along the way. Apparently the making of Dead Snow 2 from Director Tommy Wirkola, is just around the corner. Can't wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Snow And Undead Nazis!, 7 April 2011
This review is from: Dead Snow [DVD] (DVD)
Such a treat to see zombies dressed up as Nazi German soldiers who are guarding treasure that has been stolen by some crazy Norwegians in this foreign movie which is subtitled, but still it's a good laugh and amusing film with some comedy thrown in.

Watch the end bit with the zombie massacre in the snow, that for me was the best bit....

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Horror, 3 Sep 2009
By

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Dead Snow [DVD] (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.
