Nazis are bad. Zombies are bad, too. Nazi zombies are particularly nasty - especially when you're snowed into a remote wilderness cabin in the dead of winter. Marcus and Melissa are pining for the fjords as they set off to slay the fascist undead in Norway's "Dead Snow" and "Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead." Both are bloody entertaining, but the original feels more sincere and horrifying. Also, at what temperature does fake blood freeze?

Dead Snow:

Motion Picture Terror Scale: 2+. Quality score: 4 (Marcus) / 4- (Melissa). Did my future wife watch this movie? Yes!

Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead:
