Surprisingly, Tommy Wirkola’s sequel to Dead Snow, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead, is heading to Sundance. Some official photos have floated in and we have them for you here.

When we spoke to Wirkola about the film over the summer, he told us: “[In Dead Snow] the first half is a classical horror movie, the second half goes nuts.
