Question: What is worse than Zombies and Nazis? Answer: Nazi Zombies!!! Dead Snow is a fun gore fest from Norway that tries not to have any deep meaning or pretty much any thinking whatsoever. Most Scandinavian movies I've seen are more vignettes; i.e. stories that you might hear from your Grandpa around a fire. Usually short and heavy on character development. Well not Dead Snow no way.
Dead Snow was very much like the old 1980's American horror movies. But with a lot less plot, which is really hard to believe. Jason Voorhies could have been freaking Gary Oldman after I saw it.

But hey, it's a gorefest and they don't try to make any pretenses that they're anything else. Flying limbs, split open heads, brains falling out of heads, and more disembowelments than you have ever seen in any movie. That's including medical documentaries. Nazis apparently love intestines.
But overall it was funny and scary. But extremely gory. I give Dead Snow 2 3/4 Zombie heads out of 5.
