[Sundance ’14] “DEAD SNOW” sequel’s Nazi zombies poised to invade America
Hot on the heels of its Sundance Film Festival premiere as part of Park City at Midnight, DEAD SNOW: RED VS. DEAD, the sequel to the popular undead-Nazi gorefest, has been snapped up for U.S. release. Read on for the details and to check out the trailer.
Well Go USA, which has handled numerous horror and action titles from Asia, branches out into European fear fare with RED VS. DEAD, once again written and directed by Tommy Wirkola. Martin Starr, Vegar Hoel, Ingrid Haas, Stig Frode Henriksen, Jocelyn DeBoer and Ørjan Gamst star in the movie, which is described thusly: “If the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an ax, chainsawing your own arm off and watching in horror as your closest friends were devoured by a zombified Nazi battalion, you’d have to assume that things couldn’t get much worse. In Martin’s case, that was only the beginning. Picking up immediately where the original left off, DEAD SNOW: RED VS. DEAD wastes no time getting right to the gore-filled action, leaving a bloody trail of intestines in its wake.”
The sequel was filmed simultaneously in half-Norwegian/half-English and all-English versions, with the former playing Sundance and the latter set to hit theaters on a release date to be announced. (No word on whether both will appear on the eventual DVD and Blu-ray.) “DEAD SNOW: RED VS. DEAD is nonstop fun from beginning to end and we’re thrilled to be able to bring it to DEAD SNOW fans in the U.S.,” says Well Go USA president Doris Pfardrescher It’s everything the fans loved from the first movie, except bigger, better and bloodier… Who doesn’t love a good zombie movie, especially when Nazi zombies are involved!” Who indeed? Look for more release details here as they’re announced.
