13. February 25, 2010 - Dead Snow (2009)

Though this starts out with a pretty awesome zombie attack set to "In the Hall of the Mountain King," from there it moves into a typical plot involving a group of stupid teenagers renting an isolated mountain cabin. They're the characters that everyone hates - the ones that have audiences yelling at their televisions about how you're never supposed to go anywhere alone or say, "I'll be right back" in a horror movie. The way this movie was advertised was as the Nazi zombie movie. Nazi zombies? That seems morbidly awesome. However, what it's actually about is zombies who happen to be dressed in Nazi uniforms. It's such a cool idea that sadly doesn't play out nearly as well as it could have. Also, the actors playing the zombies don't (for lack of a better phrase) "play zombie." They just seem like ordinary, albeit violent and homicidal, guys who happen to be in zombie makeup.
My Netflix rating: 2 stars

  1. I really enjoyed the last half hour (especially the character with the skimobile) but you're right, a movie about Nazi zombies should be immense!
