Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (2014)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 

 

PROS –
1) The story begins from where we left last time. Herzog and his zombie army attack a sleepy Norwegian town where they got retaliation from Martin and his Russian dead army.
2) Unlike it’s predecessor, this movie dives into horror-comedy from the very beginning. The nerdy but equally fiery Zombie Squad doubles the fun.

 

 

CONS –
1) The movie is undoubtedly enjoyable however Tommy Wirkola this time borrowed too much from Edgar Wright.

Dead Snow (2009)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

 

 

VERDICT – 4/5

 

 

PROS
1) A “cabin in the woods” plot where a group of students on their vacation in the snowy mountains are being hunted by Nazi zombies. The history of the Nazi atrocities as told by the mysterious hiker in the beginning of the movie sets a strong back story.
2) While the first half is strictly horror, the second half resembles Shaun of the Dead (2004) like comedy when the feisty students are fighting the undead.
3) It’s a run of the mill plot but still enjoyable.

 

 

CONS –
N/A

Martin: …..The bitch hung up on me!
