A fun ski vacation turns disgustingly deadly for a group of oversexed medical students when they come face-to-rotting-face with a horror movie first: Nazi zombies in the snow! In the Polar-Nazi-Zombie-Feelgood-Splatter-Comedy-Horror flick, Dead Snow, a group of med students take a sex-and-booze-fueled vacation to a remote cabin in the Norwegian Alps.
“Nazi zombies??? Who doesn’t want a piece of that? There’s a storm of scary fun to be had in this Scandinavian splatterfest.” – Rolling Stone
Unfortunately, instead of finding rest and relaxation, they uncover a dark secret from WWII involving “Hitler’s gold” that resurrects a battalion of uncontrollable, unstoppable and extremely undead Nazis from their snowy slumber. What follows is a blitzkrieg of bloodshed, body parts and action-packed zombie carnage that will have them all battling for their lives against the Undead Third Reich. With this outrageously tasteless and highly entertaining horror comedy that spares no amount of flesh-chomping, intestine-ripping or chainsaw-slicing (not to mention ghastly goose-stepping), Dead Snow writer/director Tommy Wirkola delivers what is perhaps the finest Nazi Zombie movie experience of our time.
