A group of friends have decided to spend Easter break in a cosy little mountain chalet. Skis, snow scooters, festive fun banter, all the ingredients needed for a memorable holiday, until that is, a diehard local tells them the story of a haunting mountain legend. The Nazis buried a treasure in the region during the war and they could well have risen from the dead to reclaim it.
A Norwegian Nazi-zombie film … who besides the dynamite duo of Wirkola and Henriksen could have brought it off, when they decided to pay homage to the generously gory films of early Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson. Be prepared for anything and everything from those northerners, by Odin!
A fan of 1980s cinema, Wirkola directed the short filmRemake in 2006. The following year, with his script writer Stig Frode Henriksen, he made the feature filmKill Bujo: The Movie, a parody of Tarantino’s Kill Bill.His 2008 film Dead Snow is Norway’s first zombie film. Next on the list is a screen adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Hansel and Gretel.
