Dead Snow II: Red vs. Dead, the sequel to the 2009 horror film Dead Snow which was the first Norwegian movie of its genre to be selected to the prestigious Sundance Film Festival will release in theaters on October 10, 2014.
They're not just zombies—they're Nazi zombies. And there's a lot of them. On the order of a rotten Führer, the zombies from Dead Snow return to settle old German scores. In the continuation of the epic splatter fest from 2009, Martin, the sole survivor of the first movie, proves that there's more bad ass shit in Northern Norway than even Nazi zombies would be prepared for. The table is set up for a massive revenge epic where blood, guts, brains and throats are not the only things dredged up from the darkness. Old hatred never rots.
Max wanted to forget his violent wartime past. He wanted to get a degree, maybe fall in love, start a family and live out his days in peace.
Then the dead rose.
Through a horrific classroom siege and into the devastated city beyond, Max struggles to build a new family from the rubble of shattered lives. When they meet the emergency team from Central Outbreak Response, they believe they are safe, and on the path to recovery.
But the dead keep secrets that threaten to destroy everything Max holds dear.
Did you know that the Centers for Disease Control and Preven-tion
has put out a Zombie Pandemic Comic Book
They have found the idea of a zombie apocalypse an effective platform to encourage people to prepare for potential disasters.
The CDC's director, Dr. Ali Khan, has stated, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurri-cane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack."
Time magazine attributes the introduction of the word 'Zombi' into our popular culture to William Seabrook, in his 1929 novel The Magic Island
. Seabrook was a cannibal, who described human meat this way: "It was like good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef." (Wikipedia.org
So, perhaps when zombies are eating us, they are thinking to themselves: "hmmm... tastes like veal."
