100 movies: Dead Snow

100 movies of 2012, Annual Movie Challenge

Dead SnowDead Snow (21/01/12)

A ski vacation turns horrific for a group of medical students, as they find themselves confronted by an unimaginable menace: Nazi zombies.

You have to know when you’re sitting down to watch a film about Nazi zombies, nothing can be taken too seriously and what you’re about to see comes under the heading of ridiculous.

Dead Snow is exactly that. It’s not the best zombie horror film out there, but it’s a lot of fun to watch. It does get pretty damn gory, but it’s that funny and over the top kind of gory. The characters aren’t the smartest in the bunch. Plot holes do show up throughout. But you’re not meant to question them. In the sense that you’re meant to know this is a film that should be taken as is.

I had fun watching it. I laughed quite a lot. I’m thinking I need to find some more Norwegian horrors – they seem to have their own sense of humor attached to them.
Rating: 3/5
