utterly cheesy
11 November 2011 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Andreas Schnaas had made some reputation with the Violent Sh*t trilogy (1989-1999). It was just made for the gore but everybody liked it a lot. But almost 20 years later he made this flick and I must say, having some kind of name as a director he didn't proceed in filmmaking.

The story itself is a mixture of old school horrors like Amando de Ossorio's La Noche Del Terror Ciego (1972) were we had some dead Templars. On the other hand it also contains some zombie nazi's , yep, remember Jaen Rollin's Zombie Lake (1972) and to end some cursed girls who moved like Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead (1981). They are all hunted by some cheap Van Helsing look-a-like. The acting was really bad and the effects used extremely cheap. There's even a decapitation scene were the body is coming up, but if you watch closely you can see that the camera just kept the head out of the lens, but you still can see the head on the body. On the other hand there's a lot of red stuff and a lot of gratuitous nudity but the whole flick just didn't work, I regret it to have been wakening the dead.

Gore 3/5 Nudity 2/5 Effects 1/5 Story 1/5 Comedy 0/5
