On Sunday 5th October 2014, at 12.20pm dinner time, Tommy Wirkola’s DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS DEAD will be screening at The Dancehouse in Manchester as part of Grimm Up North’s GRIMMFEST 2014 film festival.
The Norwegian and English-language film was written and directed by Tommy Wirkola and stars Martin Starr, Vegar Hoel, Ingrid Haas, Stig Frode Henriksen, Jocelyn DeBoer and Ørjan Gamst. Kjetil Omberg and Terje Stroemstad of Tappeluft Pictures produced the film. XYZ Films’ Nick Spicer and Todd Brown executive produced, along with Wayne Godfrey from The Fyzz, which also provided a portion of the financing for the film.
If the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an axe, chain-sawing 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.
They’re not just zombies. They’re Nazi zombies. And there’s a lot of them. On the orders of a rotten Führer, the zombies from Dead Snow return to settle old German scores. In the continuation of the epic splatterfest from 2009, Martin, the sole survivor of the first movie, prove that there’s more badass shit in Northern Norway than even Nazi zombies would be prepared for. The table is set 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.
