Earlier this year we reported on the world premiere of Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead; the upcoming sequel to director Tommy Wirkola’s hugely popular Norwegian zombie film. After making its debut almost eight months ago at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, production company Tappeluft Pictures has finally announced an official release date!
Arriving just in time for the Halloween season, the film will receive a limited theatrical run in North America beginning on October 10th, 2014. And to celebrate, we’ve included the official movie poster, some photos and a brand new full length trailer for you below.
Picking up immediately where the original left off, Dead Snow; Red vs. Dead wastes no time getting right to the gore-filled action, leaving a bloody trail of intestines in its wake. Director Tommy Wirkola returns to the helm with a vengeance, coming up with more inventive ways to maim and dismember than you ever thought possible. Combining wry humor with horrific worst-case scenarios, this follow-up to the 2009 Midnight classic is sure to shock the weak-of-heart and delight even the most hard-core fans of the horror genre.
Producing marketing material for a film that prominently features Nazi zombies may be a difficult task. But despite the giant swastika, this new poster managed to create one of the best and probably most ridiculous tag lines of all time… and the film itself looks truly epic!
Shot simultaneously in both English and Norwegian, this new trailer showcases what Wirkola himself describes as a “full throttle [film] from beginning to end.” So sit back and enjoy your first peek at Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead. And be sure to look for our friends over at Zombie Squad; whose organization and logo are featured prominently in the film!
