We have a teaser and two clips to share with you from the Norwegian post-apocalyptic film Dawn, aka Morgenrøde, by filmmaker Anders Elsrud Hultgreen. The film stars Ingar Helge Gimle from Dead Snow 2. According to the official synopsis: Morgenrøde (English title: Dawn) is a mythological desert post-apocalypse film about faith, worldview, the beyond and the doomed delirious struggle against dehydration in a water polluted world years after a global fall.

★★★★☆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.

"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.
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. »

Director: Tommy Wirkola.
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, »

Casual horror fans may well do a double take upon perusing this year’s Film4 FrightFest lineup and noticing “Wrong Turn 6” nestled in the Discovery Screen section.
The latest installment is the third to be programmed at FrightFest, the kind of fan-oriented event that feeds under-the-radar franchises, briefly realizing their theatrical aspirations before ancillary comes calling. Valeri Milev’s film hits U.S. retail shelves, opportunistically enough, on Oct. 31.
The lineup also includes two sequels nearer the start of their potential franchise lives. Both, however, come with higher festival pedigrees. Norwegian zombie-Nazi return “Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead” unspooled at Sundance, where U.S. rights were picked up by genre and home-format specialists Well Go USA.

Montreal World Festival
Celebrating its 38th year with a distinctly Gallic flavor, Mwff will open with “We Love You, You Bastard,” from French director — and longtime festival supporter — Claude Lelouch. Montreal closes with a tribute to another French legend, the late Alain Resnais and his last film, “Life of Riley.” But it’s not all France all the time. The fest is dedicated to the late Latin American literary icon, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and will be developing the new European Films Screening section, along with greater co-production ties with a large Chinese delegation of key industry players.

Telluride Film Festival
Telluride has always been an intimate, casual, carefully curated festival that doesn’t announce its sked until the day before it begins. The festival’s reputation — it has hosted several Oscar winners and nominees over the years — means that cinema lovers don’t mind going in blind. »

They’re not just zombies. They’re Nazi zombies. 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.

WellGo USA will be releasing Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (review) in theaters on October 10, 2014, and right now we have a brand new one-sheet to share with you cats. Dig it!
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.

There was a battle between the living and the dead in the wilderness of Norway in 2009, and it ended in a bloodbath. Writer/director Tommy Wirkola’s Norwegian horror film, Dead Snow, pitted a group of vacationing medical students against an army of Nazi zombies. The fight continues in Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, hitting theaters this Halloween season.
From WellGo, Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead is scheduled for an October 10th release in the Us.

WellGo has released the teaser poster for Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead which is seeing an October 10th limited theatrical release here in the U.S. I actually liked this film much more than its predecessor (read my review) and this one-sheet gave me a good chuckle.
The "arms" play a part in the plot of the film. And that tagline? Zing!

Motel Hell is available now on Blu-ray. That information alone should be enough to send horror fans shrieking into the streets to party until the wee hours of the morning. And we here all want to get into the festivities as well.
To celebrate the release of Motel Hell on Blu-ray, we've compiled our Top 9 Chilling Chainsaw Kills. Of course this is in reference to the iconic chainsaw scene in the climax of the film. There was something simply unforgettable about Rory Calhoun wielding a ridiculously long chainsaw while wearing a pig head like a Halloween mask. Classic!
But before we get to our top horrific movie chainsaw kills, we have some honorable mentions to share with you. We've got to go way back to find some of the earliest on-screen chainsaw kills. We came up with Dark of the Sun (1968) and The Wizard of Gore (1970) for two of the first buzzsaw butcherings. »
