Product Description

Product Description

In the waning days of World War II, a battalion of Russian soldiers find themselves lost in enemy territory. Stumbling upon a village that has been decimated by an unseen terror, they discover that a mad Nazi scientist has been conducting experiments to fuse flesh and steel, creating an unstoppable army of undead soldiers. Leaderless and faced with dissention among their dwindling ranks, the battalion must find the courage to face an altogether new menace or die trying.

Format: DVD
I watched the trailer for ‘Frankenstein’s Army’ and thought it looked quite good (or at least watchable for a low budget horror movie). I guess I should have paid more attention to the trailer. If I’d have looked more closely I may have noticed that the film was ‘found footage.’ If I’d have known that then I never would have bothered with it in the first place (and therefore saved myself an hour and twenty minutes in the process).

Yes, it’s ‘found footage.’ If you don’t have a budget or any big names, just wave the camera around in darkened locations so no one can see that your special effects really aren’t that special. He were find a squad of Russian soldiers making a ‘home movie’ (?) of their unit while on patrol during their fight against the Nazis in World War II. However, all goes to hell when they stumble on a top secret Nazi experiment to create some of the most unconvincing monsters in existence (well... something like that).

So, our band of burly Russians find themselves on the run in a maze of laboratories and corridors while their cameraman shakes his camera wildly at whatever man in a rubber suit is lumbering in their direction.

I’ll give Frankenstein’s army some kudos for shying away from CGI special effects (not that they could probably afford them!), as they have attempted to make the monsters look creepy. Sometimes it works, but most time it looks like your boiler has suddenly turned evil and is now going for a leisurely stroll in your direction (and don’t get me started on the ‘monster’ who has a propeller for a head!).

So, if doesn’t have the budget, but a clever or witty script can always raise the film’s profile. Unfortunately, Frankenstein’s Army doesn’t have one of those either.

Format: DVD
This is a low budget, found footage style of horror movie. It's the climax of WWII and eight Russian soldiers are making their way through the wilderness regions of East Germany. They manoeuvre their way past dense woodlands, abandoned gun posts, human remains and burnt out villages.
One of the soldiers is filming the trek, and he troops behind his comrades, recording their activities. The army costumes, vehicles and equipment are convincing, arguably more so than the acting, which is a little amateurish and wooden, but bearable.
The soldiers come across a graveyard, where the graves have been dug out and the bodies removed. They enter an apparently abandoned church and discover a hideous looking human, who seems to have been stitched together from different body parts, and who manages to kill one of the soldiers before being killed.
The soldiers descend into the catacombs beneath the church, where they are set upon by monsters, half-human and half-robot, whose hands and/or heads have been replaced with an assortment of weapons, including scythes, hooks and guns. The monsters look like mechanised versions of the Cenobites from the Hellraiser movies. What follows then is the soldiers' battle for survival against the monsters.
The major flaw with the film, apart from the questionable acting, is that you learn nothing whatsoever about the characters of the individual soldiers, which means that you couldn't care less what happens to them in the conflict with the creatures.
There is no film score at all, which is perhaps indicative of the limited budget, and the film could definitely have done with some suitably scary music to help create atmosphere and tension.

I like the idea of mixing the genres - Gothic meets WW2.

And the effects are great - very well designed monsters.

But that's where the positive part of the review ends and the negative bit starts.

The plot is very poor and made little sense.

I hate shaky cam! Not only does it look awful but films shot that way tend to have characterization issues - just like this one does.

And in the last 20 minutes or so they finally gave up on plot completely and just descended into a completely pointless gorefest.

Shame because it had so much potential...

Russian soldiers are pushing into East Germany during WW2, all they find are a few dead Nazi's, and the twisted remains off what seems to be half Human, half machine 'soldiers', soon though they stumble upon something more terrifying than the Third Reich!!

If you've seen the mad trailer for this movie you'll know what to expect, you're also be pleasantly surprised. For a low budget horror flick by a first time director, Frankensteins' Army has very high production values, good solid acting, great sound FX, good set designs, and the monsters look great!

Each creature is original, like a mash of Nazi Cenobites from the mind of HR Geiger and Guillermo Tel Torro, drills, knives or guns for hands, real nightmare stuff. The found footage POV works a treat, adding to the films sense of chaos, terror and dread, like a viewing a 1st person shoot 'em up on a high end console. and who can not dislike a movie that features a human robot that resembles the love child of Dusty Bin, R2D2 and a seriously twisted mind!!
