I really enjoyed Dead Snow - the idea for the sequel sounds interesting too...

Really enjoyed this. A few great "fromage"s (as Landis would put it) and genre conventions gleefully used.

That sequel idea does sound funny, and the Q&A was in general good, with the highlight being the French lady's question. :)

Since it definitely looked as though it was the blu-ray being projected I've got absolutely no worries about picture quality on buying it !

Like many others I'm not generally a zombie fan but I thought this was fun, the story moved along quickly, with just the right amount of character development, violence and most of all humour.

Just saw an ad for it, available at Sainsbury's!

Started to 'drift' of to sleep during this a couple of times as it was so predicatble. Nazi zombies in the snow make look cool but the plot and acting was completley uninspiring.

As someone who doesn't really do zombie films I must say I thought this rocked.

Good fun to start the day. Some great scenery and Nazi zombies made this thoroughly entertaining. Shame none of the girls lasted to the end! 7.5 / 10
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

Really enjoyed the film.

Did it occur to anyone else that its kind of 'The Fog' with Nazis guarding their gold rather than pirates or is that too wacky a thought???

Skipped this for Salvage as had seen it already and it didn't really float my boat.

Can see why it may play well as the first film of a FF day though.

That was exactly what i was thinking at the very last scene. I enjoyed this, a nice little no brainer to start the day.

Thoroughly enjoyed it throughout - and the idea for the sequel mooted in the Q&A sounds brilliant!

Shame the UK Blu-Ray is region locked though :(

Had an absolute blast with Dead Snow. Awesomely tongue in cheek. You tell that everyone involved had a great time making it. I intend to pick up the DVD when I have the opportunity.

Dead Snow was a pitch perfect horror comedy, well paced, beautifully shot and bloody funny.
I bought the dvd at the fest and have rewatched the final big ruk a few times. Killing Nazi zombies to music with a chainsaw never gets old.
