Plot – Spoilers:

Old age and the cold have since transformed these Nazis into a squad of gold-hunting zombies with their uniforms still impressively intact.

Dead Snow 1 manages to avoid genre-trappings through dark humour and its locales. Apart from a few odes to Braindead, the film also has one of the most spectacular shots ever captured in a movie of this genre (28:31).
