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

If you like class B WWII movies, you'll love this one.
It's a low budget WWII movie around a weak history full of clichés, lacking coherence a lot of times and very confusing other times. I think they could use a better history but they didn't it at all.
The production is very simple (I think they used the same farm or park for filming all the movie), makeup is a little more than basic (just some masks and basic "monster" makeup) and there is almost no special effects at all, just some basic CGI and computer altered frames.
OK, the movie is a class B one but I think the actors did a good job with the material they had to work.
