IFC Films has released the first domestic trailer for the upcoming Nazi zombie horror film Dead Snow, from director Tommy Wirkola. This is a film that got a very mixed reaction — even from yours truly — when it debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It follows the story of a group of medical students who spend their spring break at a remote cabin in the Norweigen mountains, a mountain range that was once home to an evil troop of Nazi soldiers. And after discovering something that the Nazi’s lost long ago, they inadvertantly awaken their worst nightmare.

Now, I know that I made a point in my review (See: Sundance Review: Dead Snow) of saying that this movie doesn’t live up to the sheer excitement brought on by the thought of Nazi zombies on a killing spree. However, I was reminded as I watched this new trailer that this movie was, in fact, a lot of fun. Especially with a late-night crowd of movie lovers. It featured some creative and fun kills, some absurd moments and in the end, gave the crowd the amount of blood it desired. So I can’t knock it too hard for being a partially schyzophrenic work. As well, I have yet to watch the release version — there is a chance that IFC and director Tommy Wirkola have made some changes to the film that could give it better energy. But that remains to be seen. For now, please click below and allow the excitement to take hold.

Dead Snow will open on VOD and in Los Angeles on June 26, 2009. We will have a follow-up review from Dr. Cole Abaius up sometime next week. The trailer is just a click away below, courtesy of Apple.
