Dead Snow (DØD SNØ)

de Tommy Wirkola



Zombies that run, zombies that don’t, samurai zombies, zombies that don’t know they’re zombies... The living dead subgenre is more ‘alive’ than ever (just check the rest of the program and you’ll see) and that’s why we can only thank Tommy Wirkola for the gift he’s given us with this hilarious gore comedy where a group of medical students wind up declaring war against a battalion of Nazi zombies. It’s hard to resist the wide range of proudly displayed influences, the use of a splendid scenario and ingenious gags that always wind up staining the white Norwegian snow red.  


Tommy Wirkola

Born in Alta, Norway, he scored a big hit with the first installment of Dead Snow (2009) and made the big leap to Hollywood with Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013).
