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

Goofs

Near the beginning of the film, the company are moving through what they believe to be a gas cloud. They are wearing the "phenate helmet" type of respirator, which was rushed into service in 1915 and was used for only a few months. By 1917 the British Army was equipped with the classic Small Box type respirator, and in fact several of the characters can be seen wearing the canvas satchel in which Small Box respirators were carried. Also, by 1917, Mustard gas was in extensive use by both sides, and in the event of a gas attack troops would have donned rubberised Gas Capes as protection from blistering agents. See more »

Good potential wasted.
22 May 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I cannot say I ever saw a horror movie set in a WWI trench and I am not sure one has existed until this one. Or is this actually a horror movie or something else? Anyway the movie is rather predictable and cliche ridden. All around competent acting and directing saves it from being a disaster.
