Storyline

Toward the end of World War II, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Victor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein's work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades -- a desperate Hitler's last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.

Trivia

In an earlier stage of production when the working title was "Worst Case Scenario" (which it had been for many years), a new writer that was brought into the project suggested changing the title. Director Richard Raaphorst was against this, claiming the title had gained fame on the internet and changing it would confuse followers. See more »

Goofs

The signs reading "nicht antasten" ("Do not touch") seem to be German language, but no German would use that terminology. The correct translation would have been "Nicht berühren!". See more »

Another 90 min of shaky camera
29 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

The only difference between this found footage film and footage that may have actually been taken by a real Russian soldier is that the real Russian soldier probably would have been able to hold the camera without shaking it and would have kept it in focus.

Enough of this found footage technique. If it brings nothing to the storyline, then it's not worth the pain of watching it. To me the filming technique was overbearing and outweighed anything the movie might have been. It is just annoying to watch. And again there is zero character depth or development, partly due to the filming technique.

Alright, the monsters are great, good enough to rate all the five stars. If you want to see good monsters, then watch it. The acting is dodgy, the plot minimal, and you just won't care who gets gored because again there is no depth to the characters. If you're plain tired of found footage, give this one a pass.
