Horror
A very by-the-numbers slasher/zombie movie. A group of students travel to a remote cabin in Norway’s icy north, where they encounter people who are both dead and committed to a racist political ideology. Yes, it’s Nazi zombies, the third-most-evil kind of zombie (after monetarist and vegan-separatist zombies). There’s some very amusing zombie-chopping action, though there’s little to separate Dead Snow from the 3 billion other films that share its plot. Still, if you simply have to see wintry zombies being pulped by snowmobiles, this is about your only option.

Charleston City Paper Red on White We know certain things about zombies, based on decades of monster movies. One, that they just keep coming, no matter how many of them you kill. And two, that one bite from a zombie mouth dooms the victim to joining their ranks. by Felicia Feaster 09/02/2009
Pittsburgh City Paper Dead Snow In Tommy Wirkola's horror comedy, these undead baddies have taken up residence in the Norwegian mountains. The film follows the genre's classic set-ups and execution: A group of students from the city hike to a remote cabin to enjoy a weekend boozing and goofing off, only to be systemically picked off by hungry, zombified Nazis still angry about their treatment during World War II. Yet despite its dusty origins, Dead Snow feels fresh and fun. Wirkola's flick is full self-referencing nods to the genre's conventions, it's well filmed and the action moves at a brisk clip. Also notable is the setting: The scenery -- all those pristine, wintry alpine vistas -- is gorgeous, and soon enough, gore-geous. (Loose entrails really stand out in the fresh snow.) Then there's the novelty of seeing heads roll while people are shrieking in another language. Regardless, for a decent blast of B-movie zombie mayhem, this is a winner. In Norwegian, with subtitles.
