Storyline

HORRORS OF WAR derives from the "B" movie, Grindhouse tradition, made to play like a like a midnight movie. It is an independently-produced film made in a B-movie style, yet with a dramatic grounding and an eye toward bigger production values.......FILM SYNOPSIS: 'Feeling the pressure from Allied advance, Hitler unleashes his secret weapons giving rise to a type of warfare the world has never seen. Throughout the European theater of WWII, Lieutenant John Schmidt comes face to face with these "weapons." The Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S., precursor to the C.I.A.) initiates missions behind enemy lines to find the source of the weapons terrorizing U.S. soldiers fighting the Third Reich. Schmidt is joined by Captain Joe Russo and his group of war-hardened GIs who have experienced for themselves the all-too-real horrors of war in battle. Together, they must find and destroy Hitler's horde of nightmare weapons before his horrific vision can be fully realized.' Written by Philip R. Garrett

good but not great...worth a watch
1 June 2006 | by undeadmachine669See all my reviews

This movie is very B but far from a lot of the shot on video trash you will see in video stores across the globe. It was, in fact, shot entirely on film...16mm, 35mm, and 8mm for flashbacks respectively. It has a cinematic feel, and though some of the acting is lacking and the pace could be trimmed a hair, it is an enjoyable film. I have heard it called one of the most ambitious genre indie films ever made, and I have to agree. The attention to uniform and vehicle details from the WW2 era are astonishing, given the obvious meager budget, and the make-up effects were very effective. The acting, for the most part, was a step above acceptible, and the drama and horror blended seamlessly. Some of this film contained bits of unintentional humor, but it only works in favor of the overall feel. The CGI was also well done, and thankfully sparingly used. The directors and two actors at the showing all seemed very down to earth and really made me want to buy this film when it comes out on DVD in the fall, and I suggest any horror or war movie fan do the same.
