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

Well.. Quite enjoyed it actually, you can see the very limited budget, but they did well with what they had. It was a good balance of War and horror. Personally like to have seen more horror as there was huge potential on that story, but thats just my preference.
It kinda reminded me of wolfenstein. I definitely feel the movie could have benefited from a larger budget as well. The acting was dodgy in places but in others surprisingly good. Effects were OK, but as I say, considering the budget, they did well.
If there's nothing on the box and you've nothing to watch, take a look at horrors of war. Its not the greatest film out there, but its by no means shoddy as well. Its an above average action/sci-fi/war/horror movie, and a fairly original movie with great potential. I for one would love to see a follow on from this, and with a larger budget, it could be a hit!!
