After directing Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters for Paramount Pictures, Tommy Wirkola returned to his roots – and the Sundance Film Festival – with a sequel to his zombie splatterfest that left Ryan Daley soaked in blood.
In Dead now 2: Dead V.s Red, the new film follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of the Zombie Squad, a professional gang of zombie killers from the US.
In Daley’s review he explains that Dead Snow 2 is “a sequel that’s even bigger and badder than the original, an undead smackdown that generated enough audience jeers and cheers to rival early Peter Jackson.”
“Dead Snow 2 is Dead Alive redux,” he adds, “a textbook example of a talented director using extreme violence as a cathartic safety valve.
“Grab the popcorn and a barf bag and prepare to giggle your ass off.”
