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

The female teddy bear robot monster that is seen is credited in the end as teddy bear robot/Frankenstein's mother, meaning Dr. Frankenstein created the monster out of his own mother. See more »

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 »

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")
