Dead Snow (2009)

A ski vacation turns horrific for a group of medical students, as they find themselves confronted by an unimaginable menace: Nazi zombies.

I saw this for the first time in the theaters last summer and absolutely loved it. It started out very slow (almost walked out of the theater), had terrible acting and looked horrible. Then came the nazi zombie's. Perfect B-Movie. The whole theater was a mixture of people dying laughing and people being completely grossed out by the over the top violent fight between the vacationing college kids and the nazi zombie's. It was one of my favorite B-Movies I could remember.

I watched the movie again just to have a laugh and was disappointed that it didn't hold up watching it alone. In fact it didn't hold up watching it with two people. The movie was still slow, bad acting and looked terrible, but without being on the big screen with a theater full of people, all of the deaths seemed cheap and not as funny. I thought I remembered over the top violence, heads getting chopped off, limbs severed ect...but instead saw mostly close up shots that didn't show any of that, just sound effects then a body dropping.

There are still some great scenes in this movie that lived up to what I remembered from the theater, but overall the film just doesn't hold up even as a good B-Movie unless you can have that theater experience.
