Storyline

In 1917, in the Western front, a group of survivors of the British Company Y reach the most forward German trench in a foggy night. They capture a German soldier that advises that evil is in the trench, forcing the soldiers to kill each other, and asks them to leave the place. Only the private Charlie Shakespeare listens and helps the prisoner, while a supernatural force scares and makes the soldiers insane. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Jamie Bell originally whistled "It's a Long Way to Tipperary," but the rights to this particular song proved to be too expansive so it was changed to "Silent Night, Holy Night" in post-production. See more »

Goofs

The gun Shakespeare uses to shoot Quinn in the end is a Bergmann MP18, a gun which was not introduced until the beginning of 1918 in time for the great Spring Offensive of the Germans. It was the first of its type to appear, so not only would Shakespeare not have found one, he would probably also have been rather surprised by it. See more »

Good potential wasted.
22 May 2003 | by ikickssSee all my reviews

I cannot say I ever saw a horror movie set in a WWI trench and I am not sure one has existed until this one. Or is this actually a horror movie or something else? Anyway the movie is rather predictable and cliche ridden. All around competent acting and directing saves it from being a disaster.
