Storyline

If the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an axe, chain-sawing your own arm off, and watching in horror as your closest friends were devoured by a zombified Nazi battalion, you'd have to assume that things couldn't get much worse. In Martin's case, that was only the beginning. Written by Production

Trivia

The one legged zombie in the medic scene is an actual amputee and provided the effects team with one of his own prosthetic legs to be torn apart used as a base for the shredded stump since creating a prosthetic that allowed for the insertion of a plunger and could support the actors weight from scrap proved difficult.

Goofs

Hanna's age stated in the newspaper which Martin read was 30. But her gravestone marked with 06.12.1987 - 13.04.2013 which makes her 25 years old at her time of death. See more »

Alternate Versions

There is an unofficial FanEdit of the two "Dead Snow" movies back to back, called "Dead Snow 1+2 - The Final Redemption" which omits the intro narrative and is joined as Herzog smashes Martin (Vegar Hoel)'s car window. Runs to just over 3 hours, with all original audio, subtitled for the English audience. It also carries an amusing tagline - "Are you ready to Rot'n'Roll?" See more »

Zombie brawl
14 October 2014 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

I personally thought the first one was better. This one tried and I appreciate the effort that is put into this. But it just felt way too drawn out and the over the top moments seemed more silly than it actually being cool. There is no suspense or anything all that cool really, even if it has over the top blood and gore scenes. While the zombies were actually kind of intimidating and creepy in the first one it, just isn't the case here. I thought some ideas that are dumb and clever at the same time sort of worked, even if it doesn't make much sense if you think about it. Yeah, they created a new genre of zombies, but that doesn't make it particularly good or anything. So the zombies knows how to talk, communicate, fist fight, use weapons and be able to run. And the head of the zombie pack can resurrect the dead, without much explanation. The first "Dead Snow" was a survival movie...Well sort of. This one is a zombie brawl, it's somewhat entertaining for a while but it loses it's flavor quickly. I give this flick a 6.3/10 because of the effort, even if some parts of it seemed quite pointless.

6.3/10
