If it sounds silly, it is, but in the best way.

It's a good season for zombies.
September 25, 2009
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.
September 25, 2009
It's almost endearing how little Wirkola disguises his thefts from the gore-fests of Raimi, Peter Jackson and George A. Romero.
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).

Gore hounds will enjoy the comic mayhem and picturesque blood splatter on the virgin snow.

The Norwegian Nazi-zombie movie Dead Snow is quite the jolly mountain holiday, pitting a group of medical students against a battalion of undead, unpleasant and unstoppable German soldiers hellbent on ruining a perfectly good Easter vacation.

This splatter film is set in Norway, but rest assured, it sticks with the formula.

If Mystery Science Theater 3000 had never existed, Dead Snow would have had to invent it.
July 1, 2009
Those undead baddies, allegedly flash-frozen since World War II, are kind of unique, but they don't make up for the sense of dj vu one feels watching the rest of Wirkola's bloody vacation-from-hell-athon.

The excessive blood and guts and lack of any true scares results in an absurdly conceived and insanely executed movie.
June 22, 2009
It felt formulaic from start to finish.
June 19, 2009
Despite some dry humor, this is no-frills horror, from the hacked limbs to the gouged eyes.
June 19, 2009
[Director] Wirkola keeps the narrative taut, wasting not a frame; and he throws in funny moments, one involving a Nazi's icky intestine. Matt Weston's cinematography adds to the twisted charm.
June 19, 2009
Chomp-chomp, zip-zip go the Nazi zombies in Dead Snow, a self-consciously outlandish horror flick.
June 19, 2009
If you're in the mood for splatter, well, any film in which someone avoids a nasty fall by grabbing not a rope but a slowly unwinding intestine is certainly in the mood to deliver it.
June 18, 2009
If you tamp down your expectations there is a storm of scary fun to be had in this Scandinavian splatterfest.
June 18, 2009
Once the action broadens to the open snow and the victims start to fight back, the Nazi-zombie premise finally pays off.
