Hysterical trash gore genius
13 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like any great film-maker embarking on the third part of a trilogy, Andreas Schnaas really knocks things up a notch with Infantry of Doom. Where the first two had just one Karl, Infantry of Doom has both Karl Sr., Karl Jr., and a whole army of Karl wannabees, tin masked but lacking the same imposing menace. Where the first two were almost entirely set in forests, Infantry of Doom takes place on an island which holds hills, swamp and a militia camp as well as forest. And where in the first two every non villain cast member was no more than a faceless meat puppet to be bloodily abused, Infantry of Doom makes a token effort to present some actual characters, with motivation and everything. With all this ambition one could be forgiven for fearing Schnaas has bitten off more than he can chew, but Infantry of Doom is an absolute delight. Huge bodycount, loads of gore and levels of idiocy lingering at the hysterical, classy from start to finish. The dubbing is first noticeable. It has the raucous quality of a drunken slanging match between friends, with constant profanity and barely a minute going by without somebody calling another some combination of retard, bastard, sh!t, f#cker and so on and so forth. And the few minutes not packed with people swearing at each other contain violent death instead, the characters and their behaviour make standard Rob Zombie crews look like aristocracy. The gore stands out even in comparison with the first two films, being considerably more frequent but also a lot less mean spirited. Sure a great array of hooks, knives, spears, cleavers and other sharp objects as well as good old hands and feet get used to behead, dismember, disembowel, flay and more, but its generally done in good fun without such a feel of lingering meanness, tons of fake blood and cheap prosthetics but very much the sort of thing to chuckle at. And since this instalment has a plot of sorts the gore comes across more dynamic as well, unpredictable and even vaguely thrilling. Karl and Karl Jr. (now the Meister and his assistant) get to rise to villainy beyond merely acting as butchers too, fine and imposing antagonists with Karl Jr sporting decent scar make up and his par creepily semi skeletal. As is inevitable things do eventually wear thin and for the most part the pyrotechnic work is just pitiful, the film is thankfully short and definitely limited in its appeal but as far as micro budget amateur trash gore epics go this is just about the most fun I've seen and easily the best of the series, with virtually none of the irritating editing and inept style of the first two and less of the idiocy of the fourth. 8/10 from me, well recommended
