DEAD SNOW

Norway, 2008 (MIFF 2009, Night Shift)

Director: Tommy Wirkola

Ein Zwei Die!

When eight medical students head off to a cabin in the Norwegian wilderness they plan to spend their time relaxing, drinking, having fun and doing what young students do. But after a dire warning from a local crackpot, a familiar stage is set for horror to be inflicted upon them… a horror that comes in the form of hoards of rampant zombie Nazis with a penchant for gold and intestines!

Filmmaker Tommy Wirkola knowingly tips his hat to Raimi, Romero and everyone in between, as Hitler's finest return a little worse for wear in a splatter fest that delivers both chuckles and chills.

“A horror-action-comedy a-la Evil Dead, with amusing twists of fate and over-the-top gore.” - Variety
