Dead Snow


"Dead Snow is a Norwegian horror film, starring, among others, Charlotte Frogner, Stig Frode Henriksen, Bjørn Sundquist, Ane Dahl Torp and Jenny Skavlan. It is directed by Tommy Wirkola. The film was released on 9 January 2009 in Norway. The US premiere was held at the Sundance Film Festival, after which IFC Films purchased the US distribution rights. The film will have a limited release in the US on June 19 2009.

"The plot of the film is set around a group of Norwegian medical students who go away for an Easter vacation in a cabin up in the mountains. Unfortunately, the area they are staying in was used by the Nazis in the German occupation of Norway during World War II. The Germans raped and pillaged the locals and stole all their gold, until the locals chased the Germans up the mountains, where they supposedly froze to death. The medical students find a box of gold in the cabin they are staying in, which had belonged to the Germans. As a result, zombie Germans come back to reclaim their gold, with deadly results."

I somehow missed this one, and it slipped under the radar. Apparently the film is being released tomorrow. Nazis, and zombies, and I knew nothing about it. I should be ashamed of myself. Here's the trailer though. I guess it's a big hit at Sundance.

It looks fucking badass. Anyone else catch the sickle and hammer?
