A group of Norwegian friends get a weekend getaway to the snowy town of Øksfjord, where the party is interrupted by groups of Nazi zombies who once occupied the area. The friends are armed with tons of weapons and must fight for their lives, or die trying. Most people will shake their heads, and maybe even chuckle, at the plot. It's meant to be insane and pulls it off. Dead Snow doesn't break new grounds in the genre, but is some great entertainment. The screenplay isn't too bad with some humorous lines.
The cast is filled with strictly non-US actors that those from the United States won't recognize. However, this crew is able to say their lines with clarity and bring such an unrealistic story to life. This cast surpasses the talents of most films, like these, in America.
One of the biggest highlights of this film is the camera work. The blood spreading onto the extremely bright white snow is caught on film beautifully. The act of slaughtering the zombies is caught on camera artistically. Cinematography is done well and used the mountains of Norway to its advantage.
Dead Snow is far from a perfect movie, but will satisfy zombie fans across the entire planet. There are a couple pacing problems with a strange ending, but it's easy to forget about. The indie film Dead Snow is worth renting, if you're ready for a bloody good time.
