Did You Know?

The weapons used by the two commandos are a Thompson model 1928A1.45 caliber submachine gun, more commonly known as a Tommy gun and a Sten 9mmm submachine gun.See more »
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 »
Col Klaus Meyer:See Grogan, this demon cannot abide defiance. This is the truth of it, the abomination that seeks to seduce you.
Voice of Demon:I wonder Captain Grogan, do you really consider you've backed the right horse here? These goblins in black uniform plan to enslave your world, do you wish to hand them the means on a plate?
Col Klaus Meyer:Do not listen to it!
Voice of Demon:Their leader has long been searching for so called wonder weapons, magical items with which he will kill your people in multitudes. He already holds the Holy Lance, he had within his grasp the Ark of the Covenant, he tried to awaken the Great Old Ones, and now he has within his reach the power to summon Lucifer himself!

Engaging piece of work, 1 August 2011
Author: erikhoffman_wisc from Osaka, Japan

This film stands on the strength of the actors as there is very little movement from the bunker which the Allied soldiers have come to put out of action.

I watched in rapt attention to the performances of the Nazi Colonel and the New Zealand Captain as they struggled to subdue the demon and keep a step ahead of each other.

I am indeed a horror fan and would love to see more character driven films such as this one. I believe it was put out by the New Zealand Film Commission, I should find out what else they have made.

The gore effects were top notch as well, I am puzzled by the people who feel it was too long and feel it was drawn out, maybe the sci-fi channel is more their speed, this is quality film making with superb actors (and actress) shot in an extremely atmospheric and convincing manner.
