Storyline

In a seedy bar in a town ravaged by war, mysterious businessman Hunt hires ex-marine D.C. to assemble a crack team of ex-soldiers to protect him on a dangerous journey into no-man's land. To this gang of hardened warriors, battle-worn veterans and borderline criminals killing is just a job - and one they enjoy. Their mission - to scope out an old military bunker. It should be easy - 48 hours at the most. Lots of cash for little risk, or so he says. Once at the outpost, the men make a horrific discovery that turns their mission on its head - the scene of a bloody and gruesome series of experiments, carried out by the Nazis on their own soldiers during WWII. Amid the carnage, they find something even more disturbing - someone who's still alive. As war rages above ground, and a mysterious enemy emerges from the darkness below, D.C. and his men find themselves trapped in a claustrophobic and terrifying scenario. Their mission is no longer one of safe-guarding - it's one of survival. ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When DC pulls out the pistol from its holder in the generator chamber, its sound is identical to Return to Castle Wolfenstein (2001) when the player swaps weapons. Similarly, when the soldiers emerge from the truck, the slamming noise is the same as in RTCW when the player attempts to open a locked wooden door. See more »

Goofs

After they find the Iron Cross, Jordan shows the round he dug out of Mac's arm to DC, who identifies it as "an old 7.62", implying it is a German WWII projectile. 7.62 is the far more modern NATO caliber derived from .308 Winchester though. The rifle round used by the German Wehrmacht was 7.92×57mm (unless they were talking about the Luger pistol round but that was 7.65×21mm Parabellum). See more »

Quotes

DC: Never did care much for the great outdoors.
Prior: Yeah, ain't like we were gonna do *good* things for the rest of our lives. Fuck, we killed most everybody else. I figure it's about time we touched gloves with some Nazis, huh?

Great acting and story carry this one.
27 February 2008 | by stormrustonSee all my reviews

This was a treat to find. I went into it with no expectations, as I do will all "B" movies, and really enjoyed this movie.

There is no weak acting so once you get into the story you are not tossed out. The story is very good, a clever twist on hauntings ala "From Beyond".

The special effects are well done and the gore is good. I personally think the first two death scenes should have been a bit more horrific, but I am not complaining. Sound effects are perfect and that helps to bring you into the movie a lot.

I can easily recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good ghost story with lots of mood. As good as "ghost ship"
