Storyline

In 1917, in the Western front, a group of survivors of the British Company Y reach the most forward German trench in a foggy night. They capture a German soldier that advises that evil is in the trench, forcing the soldiers to kill each other, and asks them to leave the place. Only the private Charlie Shakespeare listens and helps the prisoner, while a supernatural force scares and makes the soldiers insane. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Jamie Bell originally whistled "It's a Long Way to Tipperary," but the rights to this particular song proved to be too expansive so it was changed to "Silent Night, Holy Night" in post-production. See more »

Goofs

The British soldiers use the Lee-Enfield No.4 MK I. The trials version of this rifle was not made until the late-'20s and early 30's. Full production of this rifle did not begin until 1941. See more »

Worthwatch
8 November 2004 | by (The Movie Crypt) – See all my reviews

Another in the recent wave of War-Horror movies like Dog Soldiers and The Bunker, this one actually has a couple of stand out moments. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone, but there are some interesting moments with barbed wire. The acting was good overall, with most of the actors showing some nice restraint. Typically, you give an actor a period military uniform, a gun, and some exclamation points in the dialogue and you have a recipe for disaster. Points go to the director for keeping a lid on the overly dramatic yelling and screaming. Still, the pacing can be a little tedious at times, and tends to get a little repetitious. Succeeds where The Bunker fell down in that it actually delivers some chills and delivers an ending that isn't too reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode. 6 out of 10.
