    Another Night of the Living Dead formula film?

    by Power_Girl

    I'll pass. Been there and done that countless times before and it doesn't look like it offers up anything new or inventive.

  • Dec. 5, 2008, 4:18 a.m. CST

    I wish it were played just a bit more straight

    by IndustryKiller!

    Because it looks like it's riffing on Shawn of the Dead a little too much. Too obviously so, which is unfortunate cause I think it could be really awesome fodder for genuine horror. But yeah otherwise I'm sold. I mean the premise is certainly pretty fucking boss.

  • Dec. 5, 2008, 4:32 a.m. CST

    It looks fun...

    by FilmCritic3000

    though I agree it could have been played a bit more straight. As is, it looks like an enjoyable horror comedy.

    by BadMrWonka

    this is a great movie, I can tell, and it needs to not be spoiled in the trailer! give it a proper "ambiance" trailer and let the word of mouth carry it. it looks GREAT! and i will be great, if we leave it alone in the early times!!!

    by ledbetter51

    1) I agree, it would have been nice if this were played a little more straight. <p> 2) I'm getting a little tired now of the "fast" zombies. Especially here - if they've been buried in the snow for 60 years doesn't it make sense that they'd have decayed to the point where they couldn't go full-speed anymore? I know I probably shouldn't be trying to apply that much logic to a Nazi zombie movie... just thinking out loud. <p> 3) I know this'll never happen, and I respect that these guys made the movie they wanted to make, and I know this may even sound stupid to me after I get a little sleep, but right now it seems like this concept played as a completely straight, serious zombie horror flick with real production values might be seriously awesome. <p> 4) I know, #3 was a long-ass run-on sentence. Sorry. <p> 5) I just learned how to do line breaks. <p> 6) Wheeeeeee!

    too bad they included the sunny beach comment in the trailer, because that's probably the movie's worst line... other than that, this movie is much cooler than the trailer makes it out to be, it's hilariously gory and spooky and funny. You can't go wrong with nazi zombies

    by ledbetter51

    Is the RZA's name supposed to be pronounced "The R-Z-A," or "The Rizza?" I've heard it both ways, but it could be that people who say the former are like, totally square (as the kids say). Is it sort of "officially" R-Z-A and then Rizza is like a nickname?

    by Mal Carne

    I'm actually kinda keen on the scene where we see the Nazi zombies in full winter daylight (running *in formation*, no less). A cloudy, snow-covered day has it own strange light that makes everything just a touch oppressive... and we can actually see the nifty zombie makeup, and the blood, in all its glory.

  • Dec. 5, 2008, 7:27 a.m. CST

    What were we talking about?

    by ledbetter51

    Oh yeah... I liked Shaun of the Dead and all, but I'm not sure it can or needs to be repeated. Plus, I think it was really the characters that drove that movie, and I didn't see any hints of characters that good in what (admittedly little) I've seen. Plus plus, I'm not sure the Shaun feel works with fast zombies, which, as stated above, I'm getting a little tired of anyway.

    by DocPazuzu do you fuck that up? I don't know, maybe they didn't, but that trailer looked like shit. Cheap-ass zombie make-up (love the long blond hair sticking out from where it was poorly hidden under one guy's helmet), and really, really lame "homages" to TOD, Pulp Fiction and Evil Dead. <p> Hate to be the hater guy, but that looked really awful, and I'm normally a complete sucker for stuff like this. <p> Bring on Worst Case Scenario!

    by doubleARon

    I'm not a zombie movie fan, but I just have to ask.<p> What kind of logic are you using that says frozen bodies decay worse than warm ones so they should walk slower? <p> Maybe their joints are stiff, but... decay more on ice? Just sayin'

    of this fast zombie garbage. Whoever decided that it would be a good idea to make zombie runs should be shot.

    I didn't mean they'd decay faster than non-refrigerated bodies, just that, frozen or no, after 60 years I would think there would have been at least enough tissue damage that they'd have trouble running. I didn't really mean to compare them to non-frozen zombies except to tie into the Fast Zombie logic that "fresh" zombies would still be physically capable of running. <p> Logic, of course, being on a sliding scale here.

    Tongue in cheek usually means that it can't be craptastically awesome. <P>However, it's fucking Nazi Snow Zombies so I believe that they could have their tongues buried so far in their ass cheeks that they are licking their own stomach and it could work. Especially if they miss funny by far enough.

    Fast zombies

    by yomomma

    It looks like the zombies need to be fast in this film, since it looks like there's only a few dozen, tops. Slow works when there are hundreds.

  • Dec. 5, 2008, 10:33 a.m. CST

    To work for me I'd want

    by Hotscot

    Needs 1. Daytime fun in the snow. Beautiful location shots. However the zombies should come out at night. 2.Then 10 hours of fighting them in the night under a bright moonlit sky. Terror interspersed with dark humour. 3. Film should end with two survivors only. However the camera should pull back and blend into further shots showing the whole German army, all over Europe..returning as zombies. ps...why is their blood not frozen?..oh never mind

    That looks awesome. Yes, I get all the homages to Evil Dead, Indiana Jones and a dozen Nazi zombie flicks from the 70s. This, obviously, isn't supposed to play in multiplexes. It's supposed to be watched on dvd with a six pack of beer and several horror fan friends. I love the snow and ice. I love the zombie make-up. I almost skipped this post, but I'm glad I didn't.

    The budget of this one probably wouldn't even cover a Hollywood producer's coke bill.

    No splatter. Should have thought that one out before you started rolling film.

    by uberman

    I almost rented it last night, but I thought DIARY OF THE DEAD was crap. A Good zombie film is hard to find. Most are just spatter crap.

    Great premise, but can they pull it off?

    by Royston Lodge

    I really LOVE this premise, just like I LOVED the premise of 30 Days of Night. But I have little faith that this sort of premise can be pulled off. There are exceptions, of course. Shawn of the Dead showed how to pull off this sort of thing - don't pull any punches with the zombies. Any extra dime you have to spend should be spent on adding another zombie somehow, or an extra pint of fake blood, or anything to make the ENVIRONMENT of the movie that much scarier. Take some silly characters and put them in a silly situation, sure. No problem. But put them up against silly, cheap zombies, and it'll fall apart. I have a soft spot for movies set in snowy, mountainous wastes. Maybe it's cuz I'm Canadian and I know just how creepy it can be to be alone in the woods in the middle of winter. There's something about the way that the snow absorbs the ambient sound that can really send you into fits of paranoia. Done properly, by people who have spent more than a little time actually spending time in the great outdoors, it has great potential as the setting for a great horror flick. The closest movie to "get it" was Ravenous, which I'm a big fan of despite its flaws. Unfortunately, it's a BITCH to make a movie in the snow, what with the moisture and the cold getting into the equipment, not to mention the cast and crew freezing to death. Those problems tend to mean cost-overruns, and that usually means a cheap-looking movie as the producers are forced to cut corners to get the flick in the can. Good sound design is also key. The only way to give a movie audience the painfully lonely sense of winter in the woods is through REALLY well-done ambient sound of the wind, and the tree branches rubbing together, and stuff like that. When you're DP is stuck with such a limited colour palette (The snow is white. The sky is grey. The night is black. Have fun!) the images alone are not enough to carry this concept. You need phenomenal sound design to get the point across.

    Oh and maybe...

    by The Eskimo

    ...this has already be addressed, but shouldn't it be "zombie nazis"? I mean they were Nazi's first is all I'm saying, so zombie would be the modifier.

    Uberman RE: Zombie Diaries

    by Xiphos_2

    It's okay for what it is, a low budget British movie. The scope is narrow and sometimes its hard to follow what's happening. I found the sound quality poor so the English accents where hard to understand sometimes. The worst part of the movie was the shakey cam. A lot of the movie featured a camcorder view. The dude operating the camera would run with it on and it got to be a bit much. Usually shakey cam doesn't bother me but this movie did.<p>

    Regarding the zombies' makeup...

    by Royston Lodge

    I actually like how the makeup looks. I really like the look of sheer hatred in the zombies' eyes, as opposed to the animal mindlessless in the eyes of most movie zombies. These zombie nazis may not be "intelligent" (zombies shouldn't debate the finer points of getting along in society when one is undead, ya know?) but they aren't humans-turned-into-animals either. They are evil reanimated. Single-minded and filled with hatred, but not animals whose only concern is survival. It's a different way of portraying a zombie.

    For a great Zombie Fix..

    by Stalkeye

    ..I highly recommend Dead Set. It's a cool brit miniseries and almost as good as Snyder's DOTD remake. Gotta give a shout-out to Shan for getting me hooked on this series.<p>Come to think of it Dead Snow reminds me of a Uwe Boll i'm having second thoughts about checking this out.

    by DarthCorleone

    I just read an anthology horror script a couple weeks ago and one of the three stories had this exact same conceit: zombie Nazis popping out of the snow. In the case of that script, though, it was set during the war.

  • Dec. 5, 2008, 6:17 p.m. CST


    by Mr.Krinkle

    Nazi zombies in a snowy blitzkrieg battle with the living? Just when I thought the genre was fading out-another zombie renaissance. This looks like what SHOCKWAVES should have been like. Looking forward to this and World War Z.

    it may fail to live up to all that a Nazi Zombie movie

    by just pillow talk

    should be, but I will most definitely give it a shot. I do tend to agree that I wish they played it more straight, because then the laughs generated would be better since they would unintentional, but still...<p>It probably won't top(less) Zombie Strippers, but then again, I don't think that was taken to the heights it should have gone.
