Dead Snow

Dead Snow ticks all the boxes as zombie splatter movies go:
  • A group of young people in a cabin outside cell phone range, most of whom will die in variety of gory ways
  • Ignoring warnings about evil things
  • Lots of frights
  • Funny bits
  • Some do stupid things, including having sex in at the wrong time and place
  • Some become unexpectedly brave and resourceful
  • Lots of zombies are dismembered or otherwise dispatched in many inventive ways
  • Very few people survive
Dead Snow does all this very well, with plenty of laughs and gasps from the audience. Its main points of difference are that the zombies are a bunch of Nazi troops that were chased into the hills by angry locals near the end of WWII where they naturally became zombies of course and an unhealthy obsession with both human and zombie intestines.

Ian's rating 3.5/5
