Product Description

Product Description

March 1942. Captain Martin Stone leads an American unit on a mission to join forces with an elite platoon of soldiers and destroy a Nazi bunker. But when the troops find themselves being attacked by the same enemy soldiers they had killed in an earlier ambush, they quickly begin to question who exactly the enemy is…an SS experiment gone wrong or the living dead?

In 1941, before the US entry into the war, a small group of US elites, including one Abraham Lincoln Brigade member to make it realistic, join up with some Finnish soldiers to travel 30 km. into Russia along the border in order to destroy a bunker. This bunker was used by the Germans to experiment on Russian soldiers. Our group does not know the details as they encounter killer zombies.

These are not your ordinary zombies. When we first see them they leap 10-20 ft out of trees to attack. I thought I was watching "Planet of the Apes" for a moment. They seem to have superhuman strength and stamina, although the film was not consistent in their portrayal of zombie abilities. Other times they get beat up in a fight like an ordinary human.

This is a fusion war and zombie movie that doesn't work like its counterparts. The ones that worked well were zombie movies with a war background. This one is more of a war movie that has zombie soldiers, not too unlike regular soldiers. Shot almost entirely at night.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

It dosn't have that cheep homemade look of most zombie films and the gore is good enough.
I found the plot sketchy and hard to follow at times and felt a bit left in the wind as you don't find out anymore about the old man in the cadin other than a few bit of info.
I like the old stumbling shambling slow moving zombie, but in this one they are like the zombies in the remake of Dawn of the Dead.
Fast moving with furious expressions and jumping out of trees and such.

After some of the rubbish ones I have seen lately, this was enjoyable and for £3.13 you can't complain.

OK - so historical accuracy and a few accents might not be less than accurate but the film is about Zombies - reality might have to take a back-seat. Take it for what is is: guns, explosions, dodgy experiments and zombies that like jumping around in the woods.

And as zombie war flicks go 'War of the Dead' is pretty good. Andrew Tiernan as Capt. Martin Stone is pretty much unkillable and I'm sure we'll see more of him ...

This is one of those films where the actual film-making is technically quite impressive, with some nice photography that looks like a high budget Hollywood production in what was a low budget film, but the lack of decent script and characters makes it quite difficult to watch. It's about a bunch of a soldiers who come across a bunker in which the dead are coming to life. With little suspense, awful dialogue and endless, confused action scenes with fast cutting and guns blazing and people shouting, it's a difficult one to get through. The zombie makeup is quite poor, and the zombies have a have a strange habit of posing for the camera in some very poor attempts at creating tension. There's a random love interest thrown in that is poorly written, and there are long tedious slow motion shots in amongst the endless fast cutting. At one point a zombie seems to fly.

It reminds me a lot of 'outpost', which has similar problems with a poor script!

The problem is there's no story, and it amounts to nothing more than a long action movie that feels very padded out. Whilst the film-makers have produced something that does look very good, it's a shame they didn't have a decent script to work with. Quite clearly some great talents, but not in the writing departments.

If you want to see frenetic zombie type of action movies, pick up Lambert Bava's Demons, which succeeds partly because it doesn't try to take itself so seriously!

Undead nazis are fast becoming the cinematic go-to bad guy. It makes sense combinging one of the greatest evils the world has ever seen with the menace of them returning from the grave, hungry for flesh.
One might be tempted to think this is a formula that you simply can't get wrong...

Boils and ghouls, I give you War of the Dead, billed as the most expensive movie ever to be made in Lithuania.

The film comes with the following synopsis:
"In 1939 `anti-death' medical experiments were performed on captured Russian soldiers by Gestapo officers in the opening salvos of World War II. Two years later allied Finnish and American forces are on a mission to seize an underground enemy bunker on the Soviet border - but they must face attack by a far deadlier force - the flesh-hungry victims of those SS experiments."

The trailer and the poster look tremendous and the inclusion of former World's Strongest Man Jouko Ahola, who can clearly be seen on the poster, ramped up my anticipation of this movie.

Despite being a Lithuanian movie helmed by Lithuanian director Marko Makilaasko, War of the Dead is shot in English and features Andrew Tiernan (Dead Cert, 300, Bathory, The Bunker) in a leading role alongside a largely Finnish cast.
The inclusion of English actors taking on the roles of Americans left me cringing somewhat and I find myself curious as to what our American cousins will make of this aspect of the film.
It was commented on that many of the undead aren't actually German/ nazis. This is explained in the opening introduction to the movie and ought not to give the viewer too much cause for concern.
