Here in my household we are a big fan of horror movies, ranging from the chilling to the schlocky.  A couple days ago it was my husband 2.0’s birthday (I call him 2.0 because he is the improved, upgraded model) and we had a most festive time watching “Dead Snow” on Netflix streaming.

Obviously, this movie isn’t for everyone, but it’s certainly an original take on the zombie movie, expertly blending suspense, homage to previous zombie films, a fair amount of gore, excellent plot twists, and considerable intentional comedy.  Our movie room was filled with lots of laughing, flinching, and shouts of “Ohhh GROSS!”

Six 20-something Norwegians hike up into the mountains for a weekend of snowy fun at a remote cabin, which turns out to have been the headquarters for a battalion of Germans during the WWII occupation of Norway.  Due to the presence in the cabin of some magical, mysterious gold coins, it turns out that the battalion is STILL THERE, and what the film presents us with is a group of....wait for it...Norwegian!  Nazi!  Zombies!  (Seriously, I never dreamed I’d ever write those three words in a sentence, and it turns out I’m deliriously grateful to this film for allowing me the opportunity.)  

If you‘re a fan of the “Evil Dead” series, definitely check out “Dead Snow.”  In Norwegian with subtitles.  Fair amount of swearing, very brief female nudity, lots of gore.
