40 Days of Night(mares) Day 8: Favorite Foreign Horror Movie

When I sat down to make my lists seven days ago, I immediately thought of today's pick, Død Snø (Dead Snow) for best foreign horror. Let me set the scene for you. Ski trip in the Alps. Group of friends at a deserted cabin. Trapped. Perfect scenario for a horror film, correct? What's that? You want something more than that? How about I throw in zombies. Not the lumbering, foot dragging kind, mind you. The running, semi-intelligent kind. Still not enough? Looking for something that will set this movie apart? Did I mention the zombies were undead soldiers from World War II?German, undead World War II soldiers. 

Wait for it...


You had me at heil brains! It is dubbed in English, so you do have to put up with the lip synching issues, but watch it anyway. It's pure fun with surprisingly good make-up effects and everything. Because, there's nothing that ruins a good zombie film like bad makeup. at 91 minutes, it's not stealing any of your time and is enjoyable all the way through.
My score, a 7 out of 10 that mostly loses points because the dubbing can be a little annoying. If you don't mind subtitles, I'd watch it that way instead.
