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.

Goofs

When the soldiers first enter the church there is a white sign in the background saying "Nicht antasten". Later in the movie the exact same sign appears again when Dimitri enters the doctor's private rooms (pay attention to the wear marks, they are completely identical). See more »

Quotes

Zombots!!
5 August 2013 | by HorrorInsideSee all my reviews

Okay...

The only reason I watched this movie was because of the recent cover of Fangoria and the article intrigued me. I gave this movie a 7/10 because the POV / found footage concept was far from having the realistic feel to it and the acting was only so-so. BUT! The zombots were pretty frickin' awesome, minus the walking Nazi yoga ball, the female zombot who reminded me of the Oola from Return of the Jedi and the Robo Cop looking one. The gore aspect was very well done, but I'm up in the air on if I will be adding this to my DVD collection down the road. I'll have to watch it again to see how I feel about it the 2nd time around. But that's just me personally.
