Død Snø, aka Dead Snow, a Norwegian film about Nazi zombies and the møøse who bit their sister, has been picked up by IFC Films. They plan a theatrical release later this year.  I know I like to complain about zombies as a tired concept a lot, but that’s mainly because George Romero keeps trying to pitch them as a timely metaphor.  The makers of Dead Snow clearly realize that zombies are much more effective as a metaphor for a guy getting blood puked on his face, or cutting off his own arm with a chainsaw.  That kind of symbolism is as old as time.  Older, even.
