Poster Alert! Art for Cub, Dead Snow 2, Open Windows & Inner Demons

9 hours ago | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Four new posters to show off this afternoon. The first - and my favorite of the lot - is for Cub, followed by the sequel Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, the Elijah Wood-starring Open Windows and the supernatural intervention thriller Inner Demons.

Cub is making its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. The movie has been described as following “troubled twelve-year-old Sam (Maurice Luijten) [who] heads off on a summer camping trip with his Cub Scout troupe. When the highly imaginative boy claims to have seen a creature in the woods, his counsellors naturally assume that their campfire tales of a monster named Kai have gotten to him.

The post Poster Alert! Art for Cub, Dead Snow 2, Open Windows & Inner Demons appeared first on Shock Till You Drop. »

Venice Film Review: ‘Fires on the Plain’

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are horrors-of-war movies (“Come and See”), and then there are World War II horror movies (“Dead Snow”), and judging by “Fires on the Plain,” it’s not entirely clear whether Japanese splatter director Shinya Tsukamoto understands the difference. The “Tetsuo: The Iron Man” helmer claims to have long dreamed of filming Shohei Ooka’s 1951 novel, already adapted far more artfully by Kon Ichikawa, but . Despite the credibility a Venice competition slot imparts, “Fires” feels more giallo than arthouse.

Reminiscent of the stretch where Teuton hack Uwe Boll tried to earn back some respect by directing pics about Auschwitz and Darfur, Tsukamoto’s passion project represents an earnest attempt to make a statement, held back by some of the B-movie helmer’s own worst instincts. Serving as both lead actor and his own d.p. (alongside Satoshi Hayashi), Tsukamoto shoots mostly handheld in a spastic, jump-cut style, seldom lingering long enough for us to absorb, »

New Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead One-Sheet Gives Head

11 hours ago | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

WellGo USA will be releasing Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (review) in theaters on October 10, 2014, and right now we have another brand new one-sheet to share with you cats that's unfortunately nowhere near as good as the last.

The film is directed by Tommy Wirkola, who helmed Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, and stars Norwegian actor Vegar Hoel as Martin, the sole survivor of the first Dead Snow’s zombie bloodbath. Martin Starr, currently of HBO’s "Silicon Valley" fame, co-stars alongside Hoel and Norwegian actor Orjan Gamst, who plays the evil zombie warlord Herzog.

While an obvious homage to classic zombie movies like Evil Dead and Braindead, Dead Snow introduced a new element to the genre by giving the dead zombies an agenda. Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead takes things even further, giving the world's favorite monsters not just a Nazi agenda but a desire for revenge. »

Nazi Zombie Commander Herzog is Back in Exclusive Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead Poster

13 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

You think Commander Herzog (Orjan Gamst) and his cohorts unleashed some outrageous and wonderfully grotesque brutality upon Martin (Vegar Hoel) and his buddies in the first Dead Snow?  Just wait until you see what Herzog is capable of with a bigger army in Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead.  In the sequel, Martin is back, and he’s got his arm back as well.  Trouble is, there’s a little mix-up at the hospital.  They never recover the arm Martin sawed off himself up on the mountain, but rather, they find Herzog’s severed arm in Martin’s car, so stick that one on him instead. It’s a downright brilliant scenario that broadens the Dead Snow mythology in some of the greatest and goriest ways imaginable.  Get ready for some serious head-smashing and disemboweling because Herzog and co. are back in theaters on October 10th and with the release fast approaching, »

Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead Review

1 September 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There’s this one gag in Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead that keeps popping into my mind and making me giggle even days after seeing it.  The first film is a brilliant blend of camp and gross-out horror, but the sequel is above and beyond in almost every respect.  There’s more humor, more outrageous gore, more zombie genre mythology and just so many more priceless moments that you’ll want to run and tell your friends about.  In fact, on our way out of the screening, the group I was with couldn’t settle on a favorite one.  How can you possibly choose between using a zombie body for traction to get a car out of deep snow and blowing up baby carriages? Dead Snow 2 picks up right where the first film left off.  Poor Martin (Vegar Hoel) is the only survivor of the Nazi zombie massacre, he »

Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead Review

28 August 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before reading any further, please understand that you’re following a reviewer who gave Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters a positive review – not glowing, but still a fresh tomato. Why do I admit to such blasphemy? Because that’s how much I respect Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola, so now when I start gushing about Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead, you’ll have the proper background.

With that said, Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead is too much zombie-killin’ fun for one horror movie. I walked away from Dead Snow admiring Wirkola’s ability to marry genre lovin’ with a serious, graphically visual bite, and his goose-stepping sequel ups the ante in almost every way. Besides showing a twisted obsession with ripping out character’s intestines, Wirkola doesn’t hold anything back as far as “safety” may be concerned. If you thought Nazis were evil enough, these Nazi Zombies show the mercy of Adolf Hitler, »

FrightFest 2014: 'Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead' review

25 August 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆What two more distasteful subjects could there be than Nazis and zombies - neither of which could usually be mistaken as the basis for a humorous film. Combine them however (with the addition of the remnants of a Russian army), under the guidance of director Tommy Wirkola, and what you get is Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (2014). The follow-up to his cult hit Dead Snow (2009) is the ultimate in gross-out horror with heavy helpings of side-splitting humour. Picking up where the original instalment finished, we see Martin (Vegar Hoel), the sole survivor of the zombie massacre, involved in a car crash along with the severed arm of Nazi Colonel Herzog (Ørjan Gamst) lying on the floor beside him.

Poster for Dead Snow: Red Vs. Dead - "The Sequel You Did Nazi Coming"

24 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

"The Sequel You Did Nazi Coming" is definitely one of the crazier tag lines that I've seen for a movie. There's also an even crazier poster to go along with the pun that features a bloody limbed swastika.

Dead Snow: Red Vs. Dead was directed by Tommy Wirkola, and I love how ridiculously over the top the first movie was. I'm definitely on board with the sequel, and here's a brief synopsis:

And there's a lot of them. On the orders of a rotten Führer, the zombies from Dead Snow return to settle old German scores. In thecontinuation of the epic splatterfest from 2009, Martin, the sole survivor of the first movie, prove that there's more badass shit in Northern Norway than even Nazi zombies would be prepared for. The table is set for a massive revenge epic, where blood, guts, brainsand throats are not the only things dredged up from the darkness. »

FrightFest 2014: Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead Review

23 August 2014 2:04 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Tommy Wirkola.

Cast: Vegar Hoel, Stig Frode Henriksen, Martin Starr, Orjan Gamst, Ingrid Haas, Jocelyn DeBoer, Kristoffer Joner, Amrita Acharia.

Certificate: 18.

Running Time: 105 minutes.

Synopsis: Picking up directly where the last film left off, soul survivor Martin (Hoel) awakens to find a zombie arm stitched to his body. Suspected of murder, Martin must stop the Nazi zombies from completing their mission. With the help of the American Zombie Squad, Martin sets about defeating the Nazi zombies once and for all.

Nazis and zombies. Like ninjas and turtles, and werewolves and cops, they are two things that were always meant to be together. Sure we can go into the idea of Nazis following orders brainlessly as a zombie would, but at the end of the day we just want to see two of the most evil things ever be merged into a vat of madness. The original Dead Snow did this fairly well, »
