Storyline

On, June 5, 1944 in the early morning hours before the opening of the invasion on D-Day, a commando team, consisting of two New Zealander's, Captain Ben Grogan (Craig Hall) and Sergeant Joseph Tane (Karlos Drinkwater), land on the one of the Channel Islands, which are occupied by the German Army. Their mission is to sabotage installations there to create a distraction from the actual landings at Normandy. Using kayaks they land on the beach, navigate the land mines, then climb up to their target: a large artillery gun overlooking the English Channel. They are confused by the lack of German patrols on the island and puzzled by strange screams coming from the German's main bunker. They find the gun unguarded and wire it with explosives. While they are placing the charges a German soldier (Luke Hawker) comes running out of the entrance of the underground bunker. Although he seems less concerned about running into the enemy than getting away from something in the bunker, the New ... Written by Zaphod1957

Trivia

Joe Tane's character was originally going to be killed off in the opening five minutes when the production was going to be funded by Paul Campion, with only enough money to pay for three actors for the rest of the film. See more »

Goofs

Klaus Meyer (Matthew Sunderland) states he is a Colonel & the arriving Kreigsmarine sailor at the end calls out to him as Oberst, yet Meyer himself states (& his ID backs up) that he is in a special department of the Waffen-SS. The SS had their own distinct rank structure and as a result Mayer would have held the SS rank of SS-Standartenführer and not the Wehrmacht Heer (Army) rank of Oberst. See more »

Quotes

Col Klaus Meyer: She is a carnivore, a desecrator of human flesh. But she comes with a beautiful and familiar face, to confuse and deceive her victims.
Captain Ben Grogan: And you summoned one?

Nazi occultism makes a comeback
23 September 2011 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Like the other reviewers, I'm a bit surprised at this movie's low rating. It's not the most amazing horror movie I've ever seen, but it's good enough for a 6/10 or 7/10.

The directing is a bit uneven, but there are some quite striking visuals. The writing, while a bit clichéd, is still competent. For a movie I was expecting to be barely watchable, it was a very pleasant surprise.

I suppose the obvious comparison would be with The Keep, where a group of Nazis unearth an ancient evil, then seek to banish it, when they realize they're over their heads. This certainly isn't a pretentious movie, and it seems to have no illusions about being high art, but it is a bit heavy on the exposition and dialogue. If you have a short attention span, you might want to skip this movie, because the violence and gore aren't really as prominent as it leads you to believe ("Saw with swastikas" is not a very good description of this movie).

For a B movie, it's really quite enjoyable. Just don't go in expecting a big budget and slavish attention to detail.
