Storyline

HORRORS OF WAR derives from the "B" movie, Grindhouse tradition, made to play like a like a midnight movie. It is an independently-produced film made in a B-movie style, yet with a dramatic grounding and an eye toward bigger production values.......FILM SYNOPSIS: 'Feeling the pressure from Allied advance, Hitler unleashes his secret weapons giving rise to a type of warfare the world has never seen. Throughout the European theater of WWII, Lieutenant John Schmidt comes face to face with these "weapons." The Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S., precursor to the C.I.A.) initiates missions behind enemy lines to find the source of the weapons terrorizing U.S. soldiers fighting the Third Reich. Schmidt is joined by Captain Joe Russo and his group of war-hardened GIs who have experienced for themselves the all-too-real horrors of war in battle. Together, they must find and destroy Hitler's horde of nightmare weapons before his horrific vision can be fully realized.' Written by Philip R. Garrett

Worth a watch, honestly
6 September 2012 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

Horrors of War isn't a great film, I think everyone can agree. However, there ARE redeeming qualities.

Most of the acting is decent, a fair amount of the "non-fantastical" story line is a bit deeper than a lot of people realize, and the special effects are pretty darned good for a low budget film. Of course, some of the look of the film is due to the use of military re-enactors, and that adds a lot of authenticity to the film. Yes, there are shortcomings, but for a first-time feature as complex as this and with such a low budget, I'd say it was a success.

This film may possibly be most interesting to budding filmmakers out there, who can see what's possible with some creativity and a lot of sweat. If you can, check out the behind-the-scenes videos online and you'll learn about some of what went in to making the film, and some of the decisions that had to be made on the fly. You really should check these videos out online if you want to learn a bit about your craft.
