Dead Snow: Red Vs. Dead On DVD And Blu-ray From Well Go U.S.A. On Dec. 9

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Every now and then there is that film — that script — that is so out there that it takes on a life of its own.   We are talking about Nazi zombies, of course!   That was the hook for Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola’s 2009 breakout film Dead Snow.    

He combined the old standby of teens assembling in some remote area (read that as the victim pool), where they come face to face with some horrible murdering menace.   They encounter frozen Nazis (relics of WWII) and not just any Nazis, but elite SS Nazis who are now flesh-eating zombies.    Splatter, snow, nubile victims, zombies and it didn’t even matter that Dead Snow was in Norwegian.

It’s taken awhile, but such a devilishly delightful dance deserves another spin.   On Dec. 9 the only survivor from the first film, Martin (Vegar Hoel), returns to battle the undead once again — and miraculously all in one piece — in the Well Go U.S.A. DVD and Blu-ray debut of Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead on Dec. 9.

So too is Standartenführer Herzog (Orjan Gamst), whose mission is to carry out his 70-year-old assignment and decimate the town of Oksfjord.   With the locals not believing Martin’s wild tale (come on, Nazi zombies, please), he must recruit his own army to stop the advancing invasion!

Update:  Bonus goodies include commentary from director Tommy Wirkola and a VFX featurette ... exclusive to the Blu-ray SKU are an alternative international cut of the film and the short film titled Armen.
