Right from the opening credits of Soldiers of The Damned, we know whatsort of film we are about to view. With opening credits veryreminiscent of Army of Darkness,
I cant help but feel that if Sam Raimi made a film featuring Nazi's,then Soldiers of the Damned might well be the result. Taking the oftentold format of 'men on a mission' Soldiers of The Damned injects the'genre' with a dash of the type of Germans often seen in the world ofIndiana Jones. A fun film, whilst gory in places but its a fun gore andnot the emotion draining seriousness of films of recent years.Schindlers List this isn't (not does it try to be), Soldiers of theDamned it is'

Sat down last night with a few beers to watch 'Soldiers of the Damned'and I have to say that I was mightily impressed. Although the actorsare not well known, they give a hell of a performance way above theirpay grades.
This film is not about Nazi Zombies, it is an intelligent film thatrequires your attention to follow the clever and ever twisting plotline. If you want 'Nazi zombies,' then go look elsewhere, this iscompletely different, a horror thriller that happens to be set in WW2in one of the most haunted places on earth.
I'm not going to give any plot line away, but there are some greatscenes in here and plenty of action for a low budget movie and it didkeep me riveted until the very end. Cleverly written, well directed andgreat camera-work have all pulled together to deliver an enjoyablemovie that leaves you mulling it over long after the credits haverolled.

I rented this movie from Sky and to be honest if there has ever been abigger waste of 99p I can't think of it. Paper thin plot, dreadfulstilted acting and a script that would disgrace a masturbatingteenager. Pathetic special effects, laughable editing, a differentcolour every shot. Worst of all the direction. I do not know when Ihave seen worse direction in a film. I know this is low budget stuff,but surely there must be better projects for people to throw theirmoney at? I just read that it won an award in Marbella. Perhaps theyfelt some sympathy for it. I didn't. It was a waste of 99p and 99minutes of my life, neither of which I will get back. I can't believethe director will get another script. Perhaps he will, I shallcertainly look out for his name and that of the writer- specifically sothat I can keep their next straight-to-bargain-TV release at severalarms' lengths.
It's the Eastern Front, 1944. The Russians are pushing the German Army back through Romania. Major Kurt Fleischer, war-weary commander of an elite troop of German soldiers, is ordered to escort a female scientist into a mysterious forest behind enemy lines to retrieve an ancient relic. As his men begin to disappear in strange circumstances Fleischer realises that the scientist is part of Himmler's occult department and there is something in the forest that is far more deadly than the Russians.
