Eight medical students on a ski trip to Norway discover that Hitler's horrors live on when they come face to face with a battalion of undead Nazi soldiers intent on devouring anyone unfortunate enough to wander into the remote mountains where they were once sent to die. It's Easter vacation, and what better way to spend the break than skiing down the isolated hills just outside of Øksfjord, Norway? After packing their cars with enough beer and ski equipment to ensure that a good time will be had by all, the students set out for their destination and prepare for a relaxing snowbound… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If it sounds silly, it is, but in the best way."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"It's almost endearing how little Wirkola disguises his thefts from the gore-fests of Raimi, Peter Jackson and George A. Romero."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"... this is terrific, a dryly hilarious horror comedy with a macabre sense of splatter humor a la Evil Dead 2... but minus the self-conscious wisecracking of the genre."
‑ Sean Axmaker,
"Dead Snow reinvigorates the genre with zombies, gore and humor spilling off the screen in equal measure."
‑ Beth Accomando,
"There's a smidgen of kicky fun in the thing, but the craft varies wildly between clever and sloppy, the acting is rudimentary, and the Nazi element is truly arbitrary."
‑ Shawn Levy, Oregonian
"It's a good season for zombies."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Gore hounds will enjoy the comic mayhem and picturesque blood splatter on the virgin snow."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"The thread-bare plot mostly serves as a means to get these people in an isolated area so they may be attacked by the undead. While the characters are likable, they are flat--you're given just enough information to care about them."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"The pre-credits opening - a hilariously self-aware, subversive chase scene scored to "In the Hall of the Mountain King" - stands as an easy comedic high point."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"disinter[s] the kind of gleefully big-and-bloody horror comedy showcased by films like The Evil Dead (1981) and Braindead (1992)."
‑ Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
"Every new zombie movie, however, has to be a little bit different than the one that came before it. Otherwise, it wouldn't be horrifying or much fun."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"The Norwegian Nazi-zombie movie Dead Snow is quite the jolly mountain holiday, pitting a group of medical students against a battalion of undead, unpleasant and unstoppable German soldiers hellbent on ruining a perfectly good Easter vacation."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"You gotta love a movie about Nazi zombies. Well, you don't have to love it, but this one is refreshingly gross. Paul Chambers, CNN."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"We get so used to foreign filmmakers giving us original twists on genres like horror it's disappointing to be reminded that they can be banal and derivative too."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"DEAD SNOW does everything a splatter-zombie film is supposed to do."
‑ D.K. Holm, Quick Stop Entertainment
