Dementedly enjoyable ...
Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly, 2014-10-11
As bad-taste splatter comedies go, "Dead Snow 2" is one of the more charitably nutty ones, less about gorging on gore than reveling in how silly the whole genre can be.
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 2014-10-10
If the movie's hilariously cruel treatment of the halt and the lame upsets you, you can enjoy the crisp cinematography, operatically repulsive effects and frequently witty dialogue.

Dead Snow 2 has its share of fun, goofy, gory moments...Half the budget must have gone for fake intestines.
Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com, 2014-10-09
This grudge match plays like a generic zombie free-for-all, though Wirkola now has the money to shift from a chintzy Evil Dead homage to an elaborate Dead Alive homage.
Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2014-10-09
After a high-speed recap, Dead Snow 2 broadens the canvas almost immediately.
Rob Staeger, Village Voice, 2014-10-07
A smoother sequel to the original that offers more B-movie fun and gore.
Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter, 2014-10-06
The makers of "Dead Snow 2" rely heavily on the inherent absurdity of their film's premise, and expect you to do the rest.
Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com, 2014-10-10
The original's gradual buildup toward inspired outrageousness is replaced by immediately full-on gore-horror comedy in a broader, dumber Troma-style vein.
