It's the Eastern Front, 1944. The Russians are pushing the German Army back through Romania. Major Kurt Fleischer, war-weary commander of an elite troop of German soldiers, is ordered to escort a female scientist into a mysterious forest behind enemy lines to retrieve an ancient relic. As his men begin to disappear in strange circumstances Fleischer realises that the scientist is part of Himmler's occult department and there is something in the forest that is far more deadly than the Russians.Written by
Chronologically misplaced map in the opening sequence showing European countries that were not in existence until the 1990's; namely Czech Republic and Slovakia. Also, Belarus and Serbia would not be marked territories on a map in use in 1944 and Russia was still part of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). See more »
Sat down last night with a few beers to watch 'Soldiers of the Damned' and I have to say that I was mightily impressed. Although the actors are not well known, they give a hell of a performance way above their pay grades.
This film is not about Nazi Zombies, it is an intelligent film that requires your attention to follow the clever and ever twisting plot line. If you want 'Nazi zombies,' then go look elsewhere, this is completely different, a horror thriller that happens to be set in WW2 in one of the most haunted places on earth.
I'm not going to give any plot line away, but there are some great scenes in here and plenty of action for a low budget movie and it did keep me riveted until the very end. Cleverly written, well directed and great camera-work have all pulled together to deliver an enjoyable movie that leaves you mulling it over long after the credits have rolled.
