Comedic horror film 'Dead Snow' to screen

RELEASED: Oct. 18, 2010

Dead Snow posterEAU CLAIRE — "Dead Snow" (Norway 2009) will screen Oct. 28-31 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. "Completely nuts and a lot of grisly fun" (Toronto Sun), the comedic horror film will be presented at 6 and 8:30 p.m. in Davies Theatre.

"No doubt about it, Norwegian writer-director Tommy Wirkola knows how to throw a zombie cook-out," wrote The Globe and Mail.

Eight hard-partying medical students have all they need for a successful Easter vacation in the Norwegian Alps: a remote cabin, skis, snowmobile, toboggan, copious amounts of beer and a fertile mix of the sexes. But once in the snowy hills, they uncover a dark secret from World War II that resurrects a battalion of extremely undead Nazis. What follows is a blitzkrieg of bloodshed, body parts and Teutonic zombie carnage.

"It's Katja bar the door," wrote Salon. "If there's still an audience out there that can appreciate a genial, splatter-infused Nazi-zombie flick set in Arctic Norway, one that's cheerfully self-aware but plays by the genre's rules, then 'Dead Snow' will find it."

Presented by the International Film Society, the 91-minute film is subtitled in English and rated R.

Admission is free at the door with a Blugold Card or IFS membership. Community members who wish to attend campus films must purchase an annual IFS membership at the Service Center (715-836-3727) in Davies Center's east lobby. An individual membership costs $4; a family membership costs $10.
