100 Word Review – Dead Snow

A group of medical students holiday at a secluded lodge, only to find themselves under attack by outrageous forces.

The group’s resident film buff even mentions Evil Dead, just in case anyone wasn’t sure it was an influence.

But what’s worse than Deadites? Nazi zombies!

Dead Snow knows it’s crazy, increasingly leaning into the concept as it progresses. There’s a good amount of gore, a couple of what I’d call ‘Tom Savini’ kills, and some novel use of intestine.

It’s biggest strength is it’s pacing, ratcheting up the tension, and ultimately ridiculousness, as it goes. A horrifically amusing genre piece.
