Synopsis Depending on the audience, the sub-sub-genre of the Nazi zombie movie could sound like the best or worst of cinematic offerings. But DEAD SNOW received rave reviews from audiences at Sundance, promising that this Norwegian horror comedy will be a favorite for genre fans. In the film, a group of friends think they’re in for a trip filled with skiing, drinking, and hooking up, but a defrosting band of Nazi zombies have something else in store for the vacationers.Wirkola does a good job of setting up the elemental story....The characters are well distinguished, the actors are appealing, and the cinematography by Matt Weston makes the most of the eerie snowbound setting.With Nazis literally popping up out of the snow, Wirkola plays a game of fascist whack-a-mole where ravenous midnight audiences are bound to feel like winners.Chomp-chomp, zip-zip go the Nazi zombies in DEAD SNOW, a self-consciously outlandish horror flick...[A] sufficiently nightmarish splatter flick....Any horror movie with the moxie to play Tchaikovsky's 'Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy' during a zombie attack can't be all bad.[A] comedy, but played absolutely seriously by sincere, earnest young actors....The movie is pretty funny.3 stars out of 5 -- A blackly comic, terrifically violent riff on the Evil Dead template...
