A coed group of Norwegian medical students arrives at a cabin near the giant Oksfjordjokelen glacier, hoping to ride snowmobiles and get laid, but their holiday fun is spoiled by zombie storm troopers left over from the Nazi occupation. Combining the undead and the Third Reich seems like a novel idea—the peanut butter and jelly of trash culture—but in fact Spanish exploitation legend Jesus Franco already got to it back in 1981 with Oasis of the Zombies. Tommy Wirkola, who wrote and directed this feature, sticks closely to formula, and his snarky attitude toward the young campers precludes much sympathy for them. But gore hounds will enjoy the comic mayhem and picturesque blood splatter on the virgin snow. In Norwegian with subtitles.
