Though best known for their comedy infused genre fare - think the Dead Snow movies and Kill Buljo - Norwegian production company are moving in an entirely different direction with their upcoming thriller, Amnesia.Directed by Nini Bull Robsahm - one half of the directing duo on Audition inspired romantic comedy (yes, that Audition and, yes, you read right) You Said What - Amnesia promises to be a tightly contained, very much character driven piece and the first trailer promises good things. Take a look at it below, with English subtitles included....

The Sundance Institute has released the movie line-up for their Spotlight, Midnight and Sundance Kids selections for The Sundance Film Festival 2014. The Midnight selection has always been my favorite because its always packed with really crazy, fun, and messed up films. It looks like another great collection of films this next year! They include films such as Cooties with Elijah Wood, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead and more. Sundance Kids is a new addition this year which, if you couldn't tell, is meant for younger audiences.
The Festival takes place January 16-26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah, and we will be there to cover as many of the films as humanly possible. Director of Programming, Trevor Groth, had this to say in a statement.
“The films in the sections announced today round out our 2014 Sundance Film Festival program and further reflect the depth and »

With his Hollywood debut Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters behind him, director Tommy Wirkola is heading back to World War II for a follow-up to his rather superb 2009 Nazi zombie comedy Dead Snow. Entitled Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, the sequel is set to premiere at Sundance, and three new images have arrived online which you can check out here....
Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead stars Martin Starr (This Is the End), Ingrid Haas (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Jocelyn Deboer (Inside Amy Schumer) and follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of The Zombie Squad, a professional gang of zombie killers from the U.S. »

The sequel to Tommy Wirkola's (Dead Snow), Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead, will show at the Sundance Film Festival, in 2014. The premiere will take place in mid-January, in Utah. This cast for this title includes: Martin Starr (Superbad), horror veteran Derek Mears and Amrita Acharia. The film stays with the comedic roots of the original. In Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead, the story brings back Nazi zombies from chilly climes of Norway. Here, a troupe of zombie killers, from America no less, is tasked with reliving certain elements of World War II. Two new stills have been released for the film (above and below). In one photo, the undead are ready to launch an attack on anyone who gets in their way. A second photo shows one character with a fatal wound, to the head. Both photos are hosted here as the film moves to its World Premiere. »

Yesterday, it was revealed that Dead Snow: Red Vs. Dead will be making its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and a number of new photos have been released.
Directed once again by Tommy Wirkola, the story continues when “The gruesome Nazi Zombies are back to finish their mission, but our hero is not willing to die. He is gathering his own army to give them a final fight.” The movie stars Vegar Hoel, Stig Frode Henriksen, Martin Starr, Ørjan Gamst, Monica Haas, Jocelyn DeBoer.
Specific screening details have not been announced and we’re curious to hear what they’re doing with this film, as it was filmed separately in English and Norwegian. We’ll have more information early next month, but here’s the announcement from yesterday:

Hitting up next month's Sundance Film Festival will be writer/director Tommy Wirkola's zombie sequel 'Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead'. And now a couple of new stills from the follow-up to 2009's Norwegian horror comedy 'Dead Snow' have landed online. Wirkola has welcomely headed straight back into the genre after his big-budget action adaptation of 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' which starred Jeremy Renner and hottie Gemma Arterton. 'Dead Snow 2' stars Ingrid Haas ('Scott Pilgrim vs. the World'), Jocelyn Deboer, Vegar Hoel, Stig Frode Henriksen and Martin Starr ('This is the End'). Check out the new images below. »
Dead Snow was a delightfully twisted zombie film in which Nazis returned from the dead in order to wreak havoc and look for gold. The simple plot is now being expanded upon for its sequel, Dead Snow: Red Vs. Dead. Speaking with Shock Till You Drop, director Tommy Wirkola had this to say:
the first half [of Dead Snow] is a classical horror movie, the second half goes nuts. With Dead Snow 2, it starts right where the first film left off and is full throttle from beginning to end. Basically, the Nazi zombies decide to invade Northern Norway again, it’s just crazy.
With talk of a protagonist raising an army of his own, we’re assuming the “red” of the title has something to do with communism. Perhaps a zombie scrap between Stalin and Hitler.
Dead Snow: Red Vs. Dead is to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and has »

You may have noticed Uncle Creepy posting lots of imagery from films playing at Sundance 2014 earlier today, and now we have the full announcement of which horror projects are included in the Spotlight and Park City at Midnight lineups.
As mentioned when posting the first wave of films screening this year, it's sometimes difficult to tell exactly what's horror-related, so below are our best guesses of what we'll be covering from this latest batch or are films that sound just fringey enough that we'll be keeping our eyes on them:
Blue Ruin / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Jeremy Saulnier) — A mysterious outsider’s quiet life turns upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving to be an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family. Cast: Macon Blair, Amy Hargreaves, Sidné Anderson, Devin Ratray, »

Dead Snow was a surprise hit when it premiered at Sundance several years ago, so it only seems right that its sequel, the horridly titled Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, will rise up at the same cinematic place as its predecessor.
Be sure to keep your eyes on the official 2014 Sundance Film Festival website for more info.
Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of The Zombie Squad, a professional gang of zombie killers from the U.S.

I had a hunch that Cooties (read here) and Adam Wingard’s The Guest (read here) might make it into what appears to be a line-up of eight (there might be some wiggle one for one last minute inclusion), but this year’s section flaunts a more international palate with the latest from Norway’s Tommy Wirkola (sequel to Dead Snow – which showed at the fest in 2009) reps Europe, Taika Waititi & Jemaine Clement return to the fest they broke out of with Eagle Vs. Shark but with a mockumentary (What We Do in the Shadows) that might compliment the inclusion of Jim Jarmusch’s latest. Oceania gets further representation with Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook and from Asia, the program assures some blood splatter with The Mo Brothers’ Killers. William Eubank arrives with a title that might sound familiar for those who hit the fest in 2007, but this version of »

When Sundance announced the films in competition for the 2014 festival yesterday, its organizers noted that they were impressed by the caliber of cinematic artistry — mostly due to technology — that freed up filmmakers to experiment with different genres. No category of the festival is more rooted in genre than Park City at Midnight, the late-night section that specializes in horror and the supernatural, and this year’s slate has several potential breakouts. “The Midnight lineup came together in a way that is about the strongest group we’ve ever had, top to bottom,” says Trevor Groth, Sundance’s director of programming. »

“The Guest,” the latest effort from horror helmer Adam Wingard; “Killers,” a Web-based serial-killer thriller from Indonesia’s Mo Brothers; and “What We Do in the Shadows,” a mock-doc collaboration between New Zealand-based directors Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords) are among the eight oddball titles set to make their world premieres in Park City at Midnight at the 30th annual Sundance Film Festival.
Having noted that the dramatic competition lineups (unveiled Wednesday) contained a number of films with comedic and horror-thriller elements, festival director John Cooper pointed out that the distinctions between competitive and non-competitive titles were blurring more than ever.
“We considered all the Midnight titles for competition at one point,” he said. “It’s very fluid.”
