Trivia

During their first night in the bunker, when Kreuzmann is expressing his worries to Ebert about an American attack and the bunker being "not quite right," at the end of the conversation he says "God with us." Aside from being an obvious religious statement, it also refers to the saying that was inscribed on Germany Army belt buckles: "Gott mit uns" or "God with us." This was also common inscription on armour in the German military until the end of the Third Reich, and has a history and usage in Germany dating back as far as the Teutonic Order. See more »

Goofs

The U.S. Third Armored Division, which was part of the U.S. First Army in France, was often confused with General Patton's Third Army. Many of the Third Armored Division's achievements have been wrongly ascribed to Patton's Third Army due to this confusion. See more »

Quotes

LCpl. Ebert: Lieutenant, they know we've got no covering fire, there is nothing to stop them from surrounding us.
LCpl. Schenke: So what? They wont get in unless one of you plans to open the door for them.

Frustrating and I'm paging John Carpenter.
19 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

We are on the German/Belgian border in 1944 and a group of German soldiers are holed up in a bunker trying to survive. But just as they find a tunnel system underneath the bunker, and the enemies outside are closing in, they suspect that something very sinister is down there with them......

One of the most frustrating British films I have watched in a very long time. You see there is a real great movie at its core, one that is desperately trying to get out, but instead of a top notch eerie thriller we get something that looks like a chopped together homage to John Carpenter. Definite shades of Carpenter's chiller, The Fog, and Russell Currie's great and creepy score sounding suspiciously like a reworking of Morricone's scoring for The Thing. The production is not helped by using an array of non German actors for this German soldier based picture. Much as i like Jason Flemying and Christopher Fairbank {my reasons for watching this film}, it's a bit of a stretch to accept them as German soldiers.

With a better director than Rob Green at the helm, Clive Dawson's story could have been fully realised as a serious and dramatic horror film. Instead the end product comes off as something that was too big a task to handle, and sadly the nicely tuned atmosphere is lost amongst the insipid and unimaginative cop out that the film invariably is. 3/10
