Exploring: Dead Snow

dead-snow-posterDead Snow, also known as Død snø,  is a Norwegian horror film that follows a more classic 80's horror model... young adults partying in a remote location where a merderous mosters awaits it's next victem.

My hope is that this film keeps the elements that made the 80's horror films so great:  a subtle moral message, the horror is more in ones mind rather then attempting to show all of it, and using subtle sexual subconscious messages to enhance the thrill of the experience of the movie.

This is not even a renter for me.  I love a good horror film but I have been let down too many times.  Horror movies had a shift in focus from true horror which H.P. Lovecraft describes in his definition of supernatural horror in literature and this modern celebration of torture.  I need to care about the characters and their survival.

Let me know what you think.  Will you go to see Dead Snow in the theater on June 16 or rent it?  If you have seen it in the theater should I go see it and why?
