Check out the brand new final poster art for Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, the sequel to the 2009 horror film Dead Snow which was the first Norwegian movie of its genre to be selected to the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. The film is directed by Tommy Wirkola, who helmed Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, and stars Norwegian actor Vegar Hoel as Martin, the sole survivor of the first Dead Snow’s zombie bloodbath. Martin Starr, currently of HBO’s Silicon Valley fame, co-stars alongside Hoel and Norwegian actor Orjan Gamst, who plays the evil zombie warlord Herzog.
While an obvious homage to classic zombie movies like Evil Dead and Braindead, Dead Snow introduced a new element to the genre, by giving the dead zombies an agenda. Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead takes things even further, giving the world’s favorite monsters not just a Nazi agenda, but a desire for revenge.
