It's a movie that doesn't mind standing on the shoulders of giants, so long as it can take a chainsaw to the giant's neck.

A gore-filled delight, gleefully throwing around horror tropes with abandon. Not one to watch with a hangover while downing a Full English, but that, apart from not going to an isolated cabin with your friends, is my only warning.

Earns points for enthusiasm, creativity, and a powerful devotion to all things ultra-splattery.

If it sounds silly, it is, but in the best way.
August 10, 2011
If you just enjoy watching Nazi zombies hunt and be hunted, then Dead Snow is definitely the flick for you.

... this is terrific, a dryly hilarious horror comedy with a macabre sense of splatter humor a la Evil Dead 2... but minus the self-conscious wisecracking of the genre.
February 26, 2010
The thread-bare plot mostly serves as a means to get these people in an isolated area so they may be attacked by the undead. While the characters are likable, they are flat--you're given just enough information to care about them.

You gotta love a movie about Nazi zombies. Well, you don't have to love it, but this one is refreshingly gross. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Dead Snow reinvigorates the genre with zombies, gore and humor spilling off the screen in equal measure.
October 17, 2009
The pre-credits opening - a hilariously self-aware, subversive chase scene scored to "In the Hall of the Mountain King" - stands as an easy comedic high point.

It's a good season for zombies.

We get so used to foreign filmmakers giving us original twists on genres like horror it's disappointing to be reminded that they can be banal and derivative too.

Every new zombie movie, however, has to be a little bit different than the one that came before it. Otherwise, it wouldn't be horrifying or much fun.

It's almost endearing how little Wirkola disguises his thefts from the gore-fests of Raimi, Peter Jackson and George A. Romero.

September 11, 2009
There's a smidgen of kicky fun in the thing, but the craft varies wildly between clever and sloppy, the acting is rudimentary, and the Nazi element is truly arbitrary.

September 7, 2009
disinter[s] the kind of gleefully big-and-bloody horror comedy showcased by films like The Evil Dead (1981) and Braindead (1992).
September 5, 2009
DEAD SNOW does everything a splatter-zombie film is supposed to do.
September 5, 2009
...gorehounds will undoubtedly be willing to overlook the movie's various flaws once the admittedly stellar third act rolls around.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 20, 2009
Gore hounds will enjoy the comic mayhem and picturesque blood splatter on the virgin snow.
July 31, 2009
The sprightliest movie about mowing down revenants with a chainsaw that you are are ever likely to see.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
