31 DAYS OF HORROR! - Day 8: What's your favourite foreign horror film?

I'm not sure if I have an absolute favourite but one that comes close is the Norwegian zombie splatter film Dead Snow from 2009, where a group of medical students on a ski vacation find themselves terrorized by...NAZI ZOMBIES! How does that happen? Who cares it's awesome! Any fan of zombie films will have a lot of fun with this love letter to the popular sub-genre. The make-up effects are impressively gruesome, the kills are creative and blood of course is in good supply. One reason why 'Dead Snow' works so well is that it's aware of its own ridiculousness. In a way it's almost a celebration of zombie films, one that warrants multiple viewings. I'm looking forward to Dead Snow 2!
