A group of medical students unloads an ample supply of beer and there is nothing to indicate that their stay at a mountain cabin won’t be utterly relaxing. Some of them sneer at an uninvited guest who tells them the story of a Nazi unit that froze to death nearby during the Second World War. And yet one shouldn’t discount mysterious nighttime guests – at least not when they appear in a zombie bloodfest comedy like this one. This self-conscious movie works with irony and black humor to wittily vary and even make use of the genre’s typical attributes. The characters here are not intended for quick slaughter. Instead they courageously fight against superior odds, and the film allows them to live long enough for us to judge their eventual demise a disappointment. Several parallel plot lines add to the tension and interest in the developing situation. How many of the protagonists will escape the "zombie pickle”? And by what inventive means will those not slated to survive depart from this world? –kviff.com

After the inspired and hilarious pre-credit sequence using 'In The Hall of The Mountain King', it's disappointing how safe and uninteresting the rest of the film is. Like a lot of post-Millennium horror cinema, it's a solid movie but merely a regurgitation of horror conventions and references which never braves its own path of gore or kicks the viewer in the genitals.
Quote from the synopsis: “Eight medical students on a ski trip to Norway discover that Hitler’s horrors live on when they come face to face with a battalion of undead Nazi soldiers”. You can tell pretty… read review
