Død Snø / Dead Snow

This is the first Norwegian zombie movie, probably first nazi zombie movie ever. I’m actually pretty tired of zombie movies, but still I gave it a chance. In addition, the concept of some few people in a no man's land surrounded by some monsters or zombies, is so outdated that horror movie makers with respect for themselves should look after other concepts. Is this what these so-called artists call creativity??

The movie started well and had several elements in terms of creating the mystic atmosphere which could have given a proper horror movie. But soon, our zombie friends arrive and create the largest orgy of blood and gore in Norwegian cinema till date. It had some funny moments, which improved the experience. Overall, it’s a pretty average horror movie but still somehow fascinating that it is made in a Norwegian context.
