Trivia:
The character of Erlend wears a t-shirt prominently featuring the words "Brain Dead" in English. Erlend's demise at the hands of a zombie is exactly the same as the first zombie kill in the low-budget American film Brain Dead (2007)--the zombie gouges the victim's eyes and splits the skull in half.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When one of the zombies climb in a tree one can clearly see that his hand is skin colored and not greenish as it is supposed to be. All the zombies are greenish in skin color.See more »

The most excellent zombie of 2009, 12 January 2009
Author: Niqulaz from Norway

Wirkola surely spent time studying the genre of zombie movies thoroughly before setting to work on "Død Snø", paying endless tributes to the great classics of the genre throughout the movie, before grabbing it and tossing it over the top and into a strange land beyond.

The movie has so many things speaking in favor of it. It has a well thought-out plot, it has all the wonderful stereotypes of a horror movie in place, and more than anything, it follows the rules of the genre to the note.

From the barely glimpse horror in the early phases, to the ominous messenger who lays the groundwork for the story, to the stalking danger in the dark, and all the way to the outright shotgun-and-chainsaw last stand, Wirkola hardly hits a single note wrong.

If the region of Finnmark should have one national-romantic epic to its name, it should be this movie.

This movie is simply a must-see for the zombie affectionate!
