October 29: Dead Snow

movie reviews

Picture this: a group of college students on Easter vacation decides to pass the holiday in a secluded cabin in the woods. Nothing could go wrong, right?

Well, nothing you’d expect, anyway. They are not attacked by a faceless evil or inbred rednecks. They are not infected with a mysterious disease that makes them all go crazy or ravaged by zombies. Okay, that last bit is a lie. But these aren’t regular zombies. They’re fucking Nazi zombies.

These poor students have to defend themselves from the frozen, reanimated corpses of the Third fucking Reich. And, once they find a secret weapons cache, defend themselves they do. The movie knows where it comes from and knows what to do. Sit back and prepare to be delighted.

      1. Okay, because the thing that disappointed me with it was that some killing sequences were poorly done and some others were very unrealistic. I still liked the movie tough but those parts made the movie a bit worse.

      2. Ah! You mean the computer generated (CG) stuff. Like blood splatter and zombie action. In a movie like this, I am very forgiving of bad CG. So I probably wouldn’t have noticed it. Or, more likely, I laughed at it.

      3. The unlikelihood and originality of that scene made me love it. I really enjoy it when filmmakers do new stuff with gore, even if it requires a suspension of disbelief.

      4. True but I thought that they went a bit overboard with the unrealistic aspect there. I did really lie the “leader zombie” tough, he kind of made the movie for me.
