My high expectations were met
12 January 2009 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Død Snø, which should have had the name "Red Snow" or "Rød Snø", but could not because there already is a film with such a name, and from where.. jepp Norway that one too. We got a thing for snow, and man did it turn out good in this one. I think they somehow got to combine the mayhem and fun from some of the classics, at the same time as they capture a bit of Norwegian fun with the music and scenery.

I definitely recommend the movie, for those who are fans of Zoombies and gore.

It's been fun reading the comments and what people think of the movie, and seeing such an attention for a zombie film from Norway.
