Dead Snow ( Død snø ) 
"Dead Snow" by Yojimbo
2.5/4 stars

Yet another in the old Norwegian-Nazi-zombies-on-a-mountain-top genre, Dod Sno starts really well with shocks and suspense right from the off, with brilliant use of the music from Peter And The Wolf. Then it settles down into the usual teenagers heading to a log cabin, to be picked off by an unseen menace to dodgy hard rock. Doh. The idea of Nazi zombies is irresistible to the point of being amazing that it hasn't been done before (not least by Tarantino!) Unfortunately it doesn't really run with the idea; the only way you know they're Nazis is because of their uniforms and the fact that they think, run around and can be killed by conventional weapons means they aren't even proper zombies in the conventional movie sense. It does have some shocks, nice effects and occasionally inventive direction, and the snow covered setting makes it different enough to be worth a look but what it lacks is a sense of FUN. Instead it's just an excuse throw buckets of fake blood and guts around and like Severance, for what is supposed to be a black comedy it isn't particularly funny. A decent schlock horror film but if the director had been a bit more concerned with invention than intestines it could've been so much more.
