Sundance trailer of the day: ‘Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead’ [video, NSFW]
Warning: Today’s 2014 Sundance Film Festival trailer is really, really gory — but in the most cartoonish, over-the-top way possible.
Tommy Wirkola’s horror thriller "Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead" is the sequel to his 2009 Norwegian hit "Dead Snow," which introduced us to the disgustingly cool idea of Nazi zombies.
As the trailer to the new film shows, we’re picking up right where we left off, with the lone survivor of the first movie, Martin (Vegar Hoel) waking up in the hospital. A doctor tells Martin that he’s lucky to be alive — and even more lucky that they were able to reattach his severed arm. There’s only one problem: That’s not Martin’s arm, but the arm of the lead zombie, Col. Herzog.
Wirkola’s style is a too-much-is-never-enough bacchanalia of blood, so be warned before clicking on the video.
"Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead" plays in the Park City at Midnight section of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The first screening is Sunday, Jan. 19, at 11:45 p.m. at the Library Center Theatre in Park City.
