Dead Snow 2: Red vs Dead - New review at Best Horror Movie List

I've got a new review on The Best Horror Movie List. I was surprised (in a good way) by the first Dead Snow film and in some ways I think the sequel is even better - certainly it's more consistent in tone. They really chose to go all-out with the comedy/gore and the horror aspect is downplayed.

This is the first time I've really noticed the editing of my reviews. God knows I need editing - actually, I think everyone knows I need editing - and I accept that as part of the process of writing, particularly for publication. There were some edits on this review that I wondered about, though. There are some new exclamation points in there and the last paragraph in particular seems chopped up. (My original paragraph had some egregious typos, to be fair.) The line about 'in my opinion' in particular seems weird - people know that a review is an opinion, right?

Not a big deal, but like I said - the first time I noticed it in a way that nagged me. Probably I'm too attached to the original wording - and I don't want to be that writer who thinks their excrement isn't aromatic - but I asked for a small edit. Figured it couldn't hurt! (Although it occurs to me that if they do agree then this post will make no sense. So... situation normal, I guess.)


"The Nazi zombies of 2009 Norwegian horror-comedy Dead Snow are back in a Dead Snow 2: Red vs Dead.  A film that is bigger, badder, and gorier than the original. And that goes for the jokes, too..." [more]
