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 »
If someone were to ask me what Soldiers of the Damned is about all I could think to say is "damned if I know".
Lets start off by saying the acting is good, the sets are good, the general premise of this film is good. Where this B grade film falls down very badly is in the storyline department.
I had assumed as the film progressed the threads would be drawn together and we would gain some insight into the inexplicable events that take place. This however, is not the case. The result for the unfortunate viewer is one of those "what the...." moments. As in, what the hell did I just waste my time watching?
This is an incoherent, borderline silly film. Its watchable but the lack anything like a finale/conclusion is a substantial shortcoming. Four out of ten from me.
