Dead Snow (Død Snø) (2009)

I actually had high hopes for this Norwegian Nazi Zombie flick in snow. It screened at Sundance and had a great trailer. Unfortunately, it suffered from numerous shortcomings.

The cast was unlikable and unfunny. The action was B grade at best. The zombies were cartoony. The only scares came through cheap jump cuts and loud sound editing. A good zombie movie needs to have a somewhat believable premise and characters to root for. Certain zombie rules need to be followed. Dead Snow fails on all counts.

Rating: D-
