Storyline

This is a movie set during WWII and involves Captain Stone and a platoon of American and Finnish soldiers on a mission to find a bunker held by the Germans. On the way there they come under fire and at the same time run in to some German soldiers that seem to be "undead". How is this possible? Their platoon is almost completely killed off apart from a few of them, including Capt. Stone. They move on and run in to another survivor, a Russian soldier. They all try to survive and end up at the bunker they were meant to take out. But once inside they find out just how the German soldiers became the "undead". Written by Michael Hallows Eve

Goofs

In World War II Finland only collaborated with Germany in 1941 after Finland had already been attacked by the Soviet Union in 1939. Finland only retook the land ceded at the end of the Winter War. US citizens did assist Finland in the Winter War against Soviet Union (as ambulance drivers) and UK and USA both supported Finland at this time. See more »

Could have been better
9 July 2012 | by pundit-1See all my reviews

This is a combination war story and horror film that could have been better than it was. The suspenseful and creepy atmosphere is there along with plenty of action to keep you from losing your attention. The acting was fair and perhaps it could have been better.

The story however doesn't explain or go into much detail about the secret sinister experiments that were conducted in the bunker. This I feel should have been elaborated more which would have improved the story quite a bit making it far more interesting than it was.

This is one movie that at first seems to be promising but later on lets you down with disappointment. One can only feel afterwards that this movie could have been better than it was. It had all the potential to be a 1st rate horror film.
