If the mad zombie Nazi antics of Dead Snow (2009) weren't enough to slake your thirst for over the top battles against undead bastards, then prepare yourself for the sequel.
Picking up the story after the original, Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead finds Martin (Vegar Hoel) still suffering the effects of his encounter with the creatures. He accidentally killed his girlfriend with an axe. He cut his own arm off with a chainsaw. And his friends still got devoured by a battalion of Nazi Zombies – which is a tough day by anyone's standards. And in fairness, his friends had it worse...
In this insane looking sequel he wakes up in a hospital bed with a new arm – but it's a super powered Zombie arm that wants to kill him and anything else it can reach. Martin is, understandably, not best pleased. With the help of his new Zombie Squad pals (Martin Starr, Jocelyn DeBoer and Ingrid Haas), he decides to deliver some payback to Colonel Herzog and his precious Nazi gold by raising an undead army of his own.
Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead launched its cinematic invasion of America at the Sundance Film Festival and continued its campaign at Fantastic Fest last week, following a stop in the UK at August's Frightfest. There's no sign of a general UK release date yet. As always, watch this space.
