Colonel Herzog and his band of Nazi zombies return in Tommy Wirkola’s sequel to his hit horror comedy Dead Snow. Martin is the sole survivor from the previous film’s bloodbath. Despite having lost his arm, he makes it to a hospital believing that the zombies are once again in their cold, frostbitten graves. Alas, Martin is very much mistaken. Fortunately for Martin, the doctor is able to reattach his arm; unfortunately, the arm actually belongs to the Nazi colonel. It’s not long before the arm stages a revolt against its new owner, maiming all whom cross its path. Meanwhile, Herzog and his zombie troops march upon an unsuspecting Nordic town in order to fulfill their last orders. Now only Martin, three American film nerds, and a few ragtag zombie companions of their own can possibly stop Herzog’s undead troops. Picking up immediately in the wake of its predecessor, Dead Snow: Red Vs Dead plunges audiences right into Wirkola’s unique blend of gore-filled action splattered with wry laughs and bloody entrails.
