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

Uber Zombie Madness!
9 January 2009 | by Filmnerd1984See all my reviews

first of let me just say i am a huge zombie/gore/horror fan and there are few known movies i haven't seen during my years on this planet. with that said i have to say that "Dead Snow" is by far the best Zombie movie i have ever seen. everything clicked perfectly together. the humor was spot on and the gore was just priceless beyond belief. this film is just eye candy for the hordes of horror fans out there. i loved the theme music in the opening sequence, very appropriate and perfect for troll like Zombies. the countless references to classic movies like "Evil Dead", "friday the 13th", "april fools day", "braindead" and of course various Zombie movies was just phenomenal. The filmmakers make no attempt what so ever to hide the fact that this film is almost purely based on these movies, and that my friends is a golden ticket to a inexplicable gore-fest of uber Zombies, a Chainsaw and a lot of intestines being ripped out in the best of entertaining ways. WATCH this film and you wont regret it! i'll give you my word as a true horror fan.
