Trailer Probe : Dead Snow
© Joe Crowe
December 09, 2008

Items of geekity interest should be only two minutes long, because trailers make us laugh. They make us cry. They work so hard to make us happy.

Trailer Probe rates the geek explosion content, how much our cortex is combusted with a volley of geekitude, and dork disengagement level is reasons you won't dig it.

Dead Snow

Geek explosion content: "I reckon you small, spoilt brats couldn't be bothered to read a little local history before you snow-scootered in here?" -- old man in lodge

"Two words: Nazi zombies." -- KaosDevice, RevSF boards.

All trailers should begin with a snowmobile.

That tells the viewer, "We're going to turn this mother out."

This looks like Evil Dead, but in the snow. It has hapless young people in the wilderness, whereupon bad things happen, in this case, the aforementioned Nazi zombies. Then the aforementioned yutes fight back, much like our beloved Ash in Evil Dead.

The newsreel footage really puts it over the top.

A nice lady takes off her shirt! This is too much movie. If there are scenes with naked humans, we may require doctors on call.

Dork disengagement level: More excellence. Everything we like is here. It's like the movie was made just for us. But what about my brain? Are there no movies anymore that me think and cry?

Haven't Nazis suffered enough? And zombies? Are we not tired of seeing both groups maligned for their beliefs and/or dietary needs?

Geek explosion level: 1 billion geek parts. Seriously. This is too much.
