An indie film about Nazi zombies? Sign me up! I spent five bucks on this DVD, which is much more than I usually pay, but I was in a good mood and the premise was too good to pass up. Simply put: I got my money's worth. As a guy who enjoys campy horror stuff, I got a good kick out of Dead Snow. The movie is about a group of teenagers (who else?) who camp in lonely cabin out in the snowy mountains. But Obligatory Creepy Old Exposition Guy comes around and tells them a story of very greedy Nazis who fled to these very mountains where they froze to death and became zombies. Yeah. No exact explanation as to why they became zombies is ever given in the entire film, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Old Guy returns to his tent and is immediately killed by a zombie because he's no longer needed. The teenagers are now on their own against the literal army of Nazi zombies. The death scenes are actually pretty gruesome, but somewhat defeated by the cheap CGI used. It's far above Asylum levels (Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, Mega Piranha), but still not quite professional level. So, I got a few chuckles out of those scenes. One true positive I can give the film is its soundtrack. Great metal songs accompany the chase scenes. Unfortunately, since the film is Norwegian, so is the music. So, it would be difficult for me to seek out these artists. Normally, I would only have payed five dollars for a DVD of something I knew I would watch more than once, but I think Dead Snow fits the bill pretty well. I can definitely see myself popping it back into my player a year from now and enjoying it several times more - if only for the obvious love for traditional zombie flicks put into the film.
