Storyline

Toward the end of World War II, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Victor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein's work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades -- a desperate Hitler's last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.

Trivia

Most of the monster designs come from the creators' pre-production that started in the early 2000s, with the working title Worst Case Scenario, as one of the first attempts to use the Internet to gather support from genre fans, e.g. involving them as extras for mass scenes. The plot of this splatter comedy would have centered around undead German WW2 soldiers coming from the sea and killing tourists at a beach. Production began in 2004, but by 2009 the project was officially abandoned and the team started to work on Frankenstein's Army instead. All that remains from Worst Case Scenario are two teaser trailers released in 2006 that feature some of the creatures that ended up being used in Frankenstein's Army more than ten years later.

For Fans of Trash and Gore
23 May 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

During the World War II, a Russian troop in Germany receives a distress call in the radio from a group of Russian soldiers under siege by the Germans with the respective coordinates. The leader Sergeant Novikov (Robert Gwilym) decides to seek out the soldiers through the countryside of Germany. The soldier Dimitri (Alexander Mercury) is filming the troop to make a documentary and while they walk, they find weird bodies, slaughtered nuns in a convent burnt to the ground and open graves in a cemetery. They arrive at a deserted church where they meet a lethal army of undead with implanted weapons and tools. Soon they learn that the deranged but brilliant grandson of Dr. Viktor Frankenstein with the same name (Karel Roden) has a secret laboratory in the church and is responsible for those monstrosities. Further, they discover that their troop has been secretly assigned by the government to find and kill or bring the mad scientist to Moscow.

"Frankenstein's Army" is a campy horror movie with a silly storyline for fans of trash and gore. The creatures are original and funny and there are entertaining and bloody situations. Unfortunately the option for the hand camera as if it were footage upsets me despite the good explanation for its use. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "O Exército das Trevas" ("The Army of the Darkness")
