“We should have gone to the beach like I told you,” proclaims one of the handsome, clean-cut, hot chocolate-drinking victims of Dead Snow, a film made by Norwegian director Tommy Wirkola that debuted last January at the Sundance Film Festival. It is releasing on DVD this fall. The film has all the typical horror movie clichés, but with ski culture infusions: beautiful, blonde, Norwegian women, warm, crackling fires inside creepy old ski lodges, cheesy lines about going somewhere other than the zombie infested vacationland chosen, and snowmobiles with machines guns. It was shot on location in Norway. This film must have hit superstar status at Sundance late into the evening, after copious amounts of cocktails.
