Dead Snow (Norwegian Dod sno) is a Norwegian comedy horror film, starring, among others, Charlotte Frogner, Stig Frode Henriksen, Bjorn Sundquist, Ane Dahl Torp and Jenny Skavlan. It is directed by Tommy Wirkola.
This is a fun, and little bit out of the ordinary, zombie horror movie. The movie takes place in the beautiful snow wilderness of Norway. It has all the classical elements of horror movies: a group of young people who go into the wild to have some fun but in the end face a true horror in the wilderness.
This time, the horror they face are Nazi soldiers that fled into the mountains near the end of World War II and mysteriously turned into zombies and have been tormenting the local population for 60 years.
This is how to make a cool movie; balance the humor and horror, special effects that don’t overpower the movie, and most importantly: actors that care what they are doing and do it well. The only thing that would bother a true George A. Romero fan are the zombies themselves, which are more than capable of cognitive actions, such as usage of weapons and other tools.
But aside from that, this movie provides great entertainment and quite a few brutal scenes with plenty of blood and gore. If you don’t mind watching a movie in Norwegian, be sure to see this one!
