      Korra N Gross, darkly funny and bonkers, Dead Snow is a hella fun zombie film with ridiculous action and some memorable characters. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/19/24 Full Review BigD J Dead Snow was an overall good, unique film worth seeing once. I'm not a fan of subtitles, especially in intense horror movies, as it deters from the effect of the film. But, it's nobody's fault that Norwegians speak, well, Norwegian. The terrible CGI/special effects are actually part of what makes this film worth the watch. This film is absolutely brutal and fun, if nothing else. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review KometQuin Y Well, in general, the norm are so terrible about the Germans Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/24 Full Review Fleegle B A really great Zombie movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Cees T I didn't expect much, but was still disappointed. 3.6/10 - Watch Evil Dead, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Machete instead. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/29/23 Full Review A.L.Jude P Funny yet very entreating from start to end. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Michael O'Sullivan Washington Post If it sounds silly, it is, but in the best way. Apr 4, 2014 Full Review Ben Kenigsberg Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 18, 2011 Full Review Joshua Rothkopf Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Felicia Feaster Charleston City Paper Dead Snow is ludicrous and often irredeemably stupid, but it is a small, guilty pleasure that takes great advantage of its unique Norwegian setting. Jan 24, 2020 Full Review Nikki Baughan Roll Credits Dead Snow is a high-energy splatterfest that provides laughs and shocks in equal measure. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 29, 2019 Full Review Al Hoff Pittsburgh City Paper Despite its dusty origins, Dead Snow feels fresh and fun. Oct 28, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
