If the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an axe, chain-sawing your own arm off, and watching in horror as your closest friends were devoured by a zombified Nazi battalion, you’d have to assume that things couldn’t get much worse. In Martin’s case, that was only the beginning.

Dead Snow 2 is an improvement on its predecessor in every conceivable way. Like the very best sequels, it takes everything that was great about the first film and ramps it up to another level. It’s extremely gory, very funny and a perfect way to close Celluloid Screams 2014.
