Nazi Zombies! In Norway!! Watch Now!!!

How could you not love this? Looks like the ultra-niche Nazi-zombie sub-sub-genre is back, thanks to Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola and his promising-looking film Dead Snow. It's the story of a bunch of snow-boarding millennial types who stumble upon some Nazi gold in the mountains of Norway, thus incurring the wrath of a horde of undead krauts. Check out the awesomeness:




I especially love the look of the zombies--kind of video game inspired without looking CG. And an Indiana Jones reference, no less!

The horror comedy has been announced as an official selection at this year's Sundance Film Festival, which should help quite a bit with international distribution. Score another one for foreign horror!

Doesn't this look awesome? Literally minutes before I saw that you posted it, I put it up on Send More Cops. I'm glad they're going the fun, tongue-in-cheek route (with obligatory Evil Dead reference too, of course).

Warped minds think alike!

B-Sol, one of my favorite video games ever is Blood Rayne. Yes. I loved killing Nazis. Made me hot.

Thanks for the heads up on this film. :-)

Peace,

Hmmmm... It certainly delivers on the CG grue... and looks like fun, but personally I still think SHOCKWAVES still rules - even though all they do is drown their victims. When I see running zombies it spoils any chance of terror. The kills are over to quick. I'm looking forward to Nazis on the moon - www.ironsky.net/

For another recent nazi zombie fest, check out Outpost. My wife and I quite enjoyed that one!

Lee said...

Yep OUTPOST was pretty good, although it was missing a clear logic behind it's central theme / concept. That was ultimately evident in the poor endings (the actual and alternative on the DVD).
