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