Did You Know?

Trivia:
The actor playing the dead German with the rifle stuck down his throat is 'Haydn Green', who co-wrote Paul Campion's first short film 'Night of the Hell Hamters'.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: 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:
Helena:I am no animal to be chained. Release me and the forces I serve will grant you powers beyond your wildest dreams.
Col Klaus Meyer:So said Lucifer in the desert to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Helena:Surely that holy name turns to poison in your mouth, Nazi.
Col Klaus Meyer:You cannot divide us demon, I will send you back to the darkness.

Good example of its genre, 24 July 2011
Author: Philip Mackenzie from London

This film is badly marked down in my opinion. There are other films "outpost" being one title which stand out in this genre of Nazis and the occult and this has the ability to match them all with solid acting performances. This is also really for a more mature audience unlike "Dead Snow" which in my opinion has a slight comical factor about it. When you consider the small cast and the time spent on screen by the actors the plot is held together solidly. For its genre please give this film a viewing and you will be pleasantly surprised of its quality. I have not heard of any of the actors but they all gel together convincingly.The suspense building up is unbelievable.

Thanks for reading and go and enjoy the film.
