Portraying Perpetrators screening: Dead Snow (2009)

Start: Jan 15, 2015 7:00:00 PM

Dead Snow is a zombie-splatter film. A group medical students set off to spend their Easter holidays in a cabin in the mountains where they plan to ski and drink. After their arrival, they meet a strange hiker who tells them about the Nazi occupation in Norway and a group of soldiers who went missing in the mountains and were never seen again. The following night they are attacked by a battalion of undead Nazis. The film is full of dark humour and was nominated for several Scream Awards. Rotten Tomatoes described it as "an entertaining mix of camp, scares, and blood and guts". The story is based on the draugr - an undead creature from Norse mythology.
