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

Paul Campion re-mortgaged his house in New Zealand to finance the film. It was originally just going to be made with his money until the New Zealand Film Commission backed the film and provided additional funding. 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

Captain Ben Grogan: Why don't you start?
Col Klaus Meyer: The demon must be present.
Captain Ben Grogan: Why would she come down here if this will harm her?
Col Klaus Meyer: She will come down here because she is hungry, and we are the freshest meat, the tastiest dish on the table.

prisoner of channel island
24 July 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This is a dark movie in the spirit of the works of Lovecraft. It made me think of "Prisoner of Ice" in particular. The acting is convincing, direction is good, the special effects (mostly involving gore), are OK.

It is loaded with clichés though, such as the evil Nazi, the cunning demon and the good allied soldier. One problem is that it lacks secondary characters that we can watch dying. There was just one guy, I think. One of the fun things about watching a horror movie is to bet with your friends about who will die next.

Anyways, I rate it way higher than I honestly would, because its rating is ridiculously low. I mean, OK this is no Dario Argento, but I thought it was a decent movie for its genre. In fact it may be the best movie I watched about Nazis trying to summon demons from hell.
