I watched a Blu-ray screener of this the other night, and can highly recommend. It starts slowly, but builds nicely with some gruesome action and a killer finale.

Make sure you don't miss it.

jonbly didn't. Good stuff, with a few slightly hesitant steps visible but generally a good time was had by all (all the zombie Nazis, anyway...)

I always approach Zombie movies with some trepidation as I'm really not a huge fan of the sub-genre and particularly the "old-school" groaning slow-moving shufflers (lie in for me on Monday then ;)) but I'm really glad I watched this one. Well-paced, very likeable characters, inventive dispatchings and fun Zombie-Nazi's - the best movie of the day for me. Scandinavia is pumping out some good stuff!

was back home by the time this played but I have seen a screener and I don't really like it. I'm not one to be swayed by other peoes opinion but everyone seems to like it so I might have another look. I do like the zombie action toward the end but I hate the characters. Especially the guy in the braindead t-shirt.

I liked this but was not quite in the right mood yet, and so I struggled with the character building and heightening suspense scenes (even though they were good enough).

I did like the way the trad. arr. comedy geeks played with the cliches, instantly disliking the horror fan, but growing to like them. The scandinavian films have much better grip on likable character, I find.

Once the zombies kick in it's a fine tribute to the proper career of Peter Jackson and Sam Raimi, some well-observed "tribute" scenes and an enjoyable ride between some predictable moments.

I've seen so many really bad direct to DVD zombie movies that it was really refreshing to see one as good as this. This and The Horde have restored my faith in the sub genre. :D

Ein, Zwei, Die! As good a tag line as Black Sheeps Violence of The Lambs :) Loved this one - good balance of comedy and horror. Generally I find Zombie movies pretty bloody tedious and cant be doing with them however this one was just great.

Definitely the best tagline of the festival this year and the film itself didnt disappoint - it did what it said on the tin, and was overall a fun movie that didnt take itself seriously with some nazi zombie ass-kicking in it... which is always good! :-)

I never in my wildest dreams imagined there would be a better nazi zombie movie than 'Zombie Lake' but mein gott 'Dead Snow' was brilliant!!

Great fun, made with love and knowledge. A really great start to the day.

Did anyone else notice the brilliant but subtle russian joke after the guys grabbed tools from the shed to fight the zombies?

Great, great fun and the perfect Sunday morning wakeup. I could personally do with a little bit less of the Party Animal stuff - excessive drinking and goofing around to a thudding rock soundtrack - in the early stages. But terrific fun, a little in the Shaun vein.

I just loved this - great mix of splatter gore and comedy, and the Nazis and snow gave it an original slant. Thought the pacing was perfect, the scene was set up nicely, and it exploded into action at just the right time, and from then on it was just gleeful bloody fun all the way! It was the perfect way to start Sunday morning :lol:

I'll be swapping cash for the DVD of this very soon!

One of my favourite films of the festival. Great fun, very gorey, well made, great scenery and a film requiring not too much thinking (and I don't mean that in a bad way) - Entertaining from start to finish.
