Frame By Frame Brutality : Dead Snow

Though all of characters in the Nazi zombie gore-fest Dead Snow meet brutal demises, it is horror buff Erlend who perhaps has the most horrifying fate.  Ya see, one of Erlend's favorite movies is Peter Jackon's Dead Alive/Braindead, as evidenced by the Fright Rags shirt he rocks, and right after he makes love to a hot chick in an outhouse, Erlend is given a death scene ripped straight out of the movie he so loves.

Remember when zombie baby Selwyn emerges from the inside of that lady in the glasses, and then proceeds to rip her head into two separate halves, on his way out?  Yea, well that's precisely what happens to poor horror fan Erlend, in Dead Snow.  Fitting?  I'd say so!

Enjoy every bloody frame of Erlend's utterly brutal death, in this edition of Frame By Frame Brutality!!

Though it didn't win, this scene was nominated for 'Most Memorable Mutilation', at the 2009 Scream Awards!

I thought that movie was pretty cool. Found out later that they bootlegged the Fright Rags design, used it in the movie, and refused to pay for use of the design. Kinda puts a stink on the whole movie for me...which sucks cuz the movie is much better than I thought it would be. I will give props for practical gore effects.

Anyways, this right here is enough reason for me to never see the movie. I had little interest in the first place and this just sealed the deal. Ben at FR took care of me and my brother in law in a big way. I try to support them as much as possible. I did get the opportunity to thank him in person at the Monster Mania Con at least.
