Tommy Wirkola‘s Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead is to premiere at Sundance next month. I’m hardly pinging with anticipation – I found the first film to be slapdash and dreary, almost entirely devoid of original ideas. “[Beavis and Butthead laugh] Nazi zombies [Beavis and Butthead laugh]” can only carry you so far.
About an inch, I think.
And, unfortunately, the big hook revealed by this trailer for the second picture is really quite familiar too.
Maybe this new film will be more tightly structured, full of polish and surprises. It’s certainly not impossible.
Thanks to Shock Till You Drop for the heads up on the trailer.
