In the frozen arctic forests, Captain Martin Stone is leading a finely-trained, elite platoon of American and Finnish soldiers as they attack an enemy bunker. Underestimating the enemy’s strength, they are quickly beaten back into the forest. As they try to regroup, they are suddenly attacked by the same soldiers they had just killed a few minutes earlier. Forced to flee deeper into Russian territory, they discover one of the most terrifying secrets of World War II and realize they have woken a far more deadly enemy. Death is no longer the final frontier.
Writer and director Tommy Wirkola is back behind the helm of the Dead Snow franchise after pulling studio duty on Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. We’ve now got the proof that he’s back Norway to direct the action-filled Dead Snow: War of the Dead with some set photos and a synopsis (via Twitch).
The film, “ will be shot in both English and Norwegian. In the sequel the story follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of a professional gang of American zombie killers who call themselves the Zombie Squad.”
Per Wirkola, “I am delighted to step back into the world of Nazi zombies yet again with Dead Snow: War Of The Dead, a world that is very close to my heart. We have a script that I am super excited about, which is bigger, scarier, funnier, more action-filled and gorier than the previous one, and I can’t wait to unleash another horde of undead Nazi zombies onto the world again.” READ MORE
When eventually ranked in the annals of zombie war flicks, War of the Dead will earn a place somewhere alongside the gritty militarism of Romero’s Day of the Dead. But not really. Marko Mäkilaakso’s debut feature certainly delivers what it promises––it‘s a grimy, action-packed zombie war spectacle…that creaks under the weight of a silly-ass screenplay. It may not be a perfect film, but if you’ve got a jones for zombies in uniform, War of the Dead has got your fix. READ MORE
