Dead Snow

Nazis zombies? Who doesn't want to sign up for that, especially as they feed on oversexed medical students Easter vacationing in the Norwegian Alps? If you tamp down your expectations — those gaping plot holes are dangerous! — there is a storm of scary fun to be had in this Scandinavian splatterfest. Conveniently, the vacationers include a movie junkie (Jeppe Beck Laursen) who points out the flaws in other horror flicks. I suspect director Tommy Wirkola has been feeding on Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead for years now. You won't mind much. The blood looks crazy creepy in the snow.
