PostHeaderIcon Dead Snow Review

GD Star Rating

A ski vacation turns horrific for a group of medical students, as they find themselves confronted by an unimaginable menace: Nazi zombies.

Nazi zombies? What will they come up with next? Dead Snow is a Norwegian film which offers an English subbed or dubbed version. I happened to view the dubbed version which wasn’t too bad for a dubbing in general. The film itself starts off very cliche and goes through a lot of the normal things your standard “slasher” horror flick goes through with someone dying in the beginning, a group of young people getting together, a few cheap scares and an old guy who shows up to scare them. Once all this happens and the real action starts is when Dead Snow starts to shine. Instead of just constantly running from the Nazi zombies the characters do fight back a little and the action is pretty good.

The movie has a few cheap scares, but it is more gory than scary. Any fans of gore should be delighted as there are a few cool kill scenes. The Nazi zombies themselves look just like a Nazi zombie would probably look and instead of being just mindless zombies they had a little more depth to them which made it more interesting. As with the trend with a lot of horror movies today, there is dark comedy aspects to it in-between all the killing. Overall Dead Snow was an average, but entertaining movie. If the beginning wasn’t so cliche and the real action started sooner it would have gotten a higher score.

Ratings Explained

10-9 = Very few movies will get a 9 or 10 and it is reserved for great movies with very few flaws. The acting, direction, music, plot, and ending all have to be excellent.

8-7 = Most highly recommended movies will fall under this range. They will be enjoyable and get a positive recommendation. Some flaws in the film will keep it from getting a higher score, but definitely worth checking out.

6-5 = Films in this range have several flaws and may be entertaining, but lack most of the qualities that make films great. These are generally reserved for when you want to watch a film and don't have too many options.

4-3 = Anything in this range isn't very good, but has a few positives throughout to keep it from getting the lowest scores. Even though the score is low there is still a chance some people may like these.

2-1 = The bottom of the barrel, the only difference between 2 and 1 is that if I can finish the movie it automatically gets a 2, but if it is so terrible that I need to turn it off before it ends then it gets a 1.
