The Frozen Dead Can Be A Chilling Film!
22 March 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so this isn't the greatest of horror films and perhaps there are moments when the film slows to a crawl, but it also has some truly chilling moments! I first saw this film on late-night TV as a young one and I'll always remember the creepy ending and the decapitated head pleading to be killed. Dana Andrews heads the cast and does a nice job as the Nazi Dr trying to bring the frozen soldiers of the Third Reich back to life. I was thrilled to find this film on DVD as part of a double-feature with the truly horrid film, 'They Saved Hitler's Brain'. If you have an opportunity to watch this film, you really should give it a's not nearly as bad as some would have you believe!
