Dead Snow Review
Written by: AgingHorrorFan
Dead Snow is the the most energetic movie about mowing down revenants with a chainsaw since Bruce Campbell said "groovy." And groovy this movie is, at least for the most part.
This is a homage to the horror genre and, especially, Sam Raimi's Evil Dead movies. There's blood and gore a plenty and, for once, the human's do a damn good job of fighting back against the zombies . . . which are Nazis.
It's all good in the name of grue, and there are some real creative death scenes which are equally horrifying, complex and comical.
Too bad, as with most horror movies of late, all the good stuff is packed into the last half of the movie. I'm all for pacing and character development, but some times it's nice when a movie cuts loose early. Dead Snow could have benefited from that.
