Storyline

Several friends take to the mountains and shack-up in the wilderness of back-of-beyond to enjoy a little R and R together. Their peace is soon interrupted by a mysterious old man who informs them that during WWII, Nazi invaders of the area were brutal and harsh in their methods of control until, according to a legend, a villager's revolt drove the invaders up into the cold, dark mountains, where they perished. But now there's the rumor that they returned in the form of zombies --evil Nazi zombies. Written by Cinema_Fan

Trivia

The Nazi zombies in this film are a combination of typical zombies in popular culture and ancient Norse mythical beings known as draug. A draug is a undead being who would inhabit graves, often the graves of important men, as they often had treasures in them. A draug would protect these treasures as if they were their own.

Game Over US
25 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norwegian film makers get it. This is how to make a cool movie; balance the humor and horror, special effects that don't over power the movie, and most importantly: actors that care what they are doing and do it well! Fritt Vilt one and two (Two not being as good as the first, but that's the norm) were leagues over what Hollywood has put out in over 20 years, just small budget horror from people who care what they put out. My only complaint is that it's hard to get these movies in North America and even harder to get English subtitles, but that is in no way a knock to these fine movies. If you can get hold of the these films and are a horror buff, find them, you won't be disappointed. Keep it up Norway!!!!!!
