"These are not your textbook zombies. These are cursed zombies, awakened to complete a task given to them." The fight between the living and the risen dead continues in Tommy Wirkola’s Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead. The new trailer shows Martin once again fighting Colonel Herzog's Nazi zombies, but this time he has to deal with a possessed arm reminiscent of Ash's infected hand from Evil Dead 2.

"Martin (Vegar Hoel) hasn’t had the best vacation. He accidentally killed his girlfriend with an axe. He cut his own arm off with a chainsaw. And his friends STILL got devoured by a battallion of Nazi Zombies. This morning, he woke up in a hospital bed with a new arm – but it’s a super-powered Zombie arm that wants to kill him, and anything else it can reach. Martin’s PISSED. And with the help of his new Zombie Squad pals (Martin Starr, Jocelyn DeBoer, Ingrid Haas), he’s gonna deliver some payback to Colonel Herzog and his precious Nazi gold – by raising an undead army of his own."

Written and directed by Tommy Wirkola, Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead stars Vegar Hoel, Stig Frode Henriksen, Martin Starr, Ørjan Gamst, Monica Haas, and Jocelyn DeBoer, and it is produced by Terje Strømstad and Kietil Omberg. Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead will play at 11:15pm at Fantastic Fest's opening night on Thursday, September 18th, with Tommy Wirkola in attendance. Well Go USA will release the film in the US on October 10th.
