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 »
I got suckered into watching this movie because I'm a huge fan of history, the DVD cover looked really cool and it had a promising name for a title. I was hoping it would be something like the movie "Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead" which is unquestionably a masterpiece compared to this.
There are so many flaws in Soldiers of the Damned that thinking about the specifics hurts my brain.
By the end of the movie for the first time ever I just froze staring at the entire credits daydreaming wondering how the hell someone could make such garbage. While staring blankly at the credits I noticed there were 3 assistant directors, this is probably where the movie really failed. I can't possibly imagine why there would need to be a total of 4 directors when basically the entire movie was about 5 people in the forest.
There were only 2 decent actors in the entire movie and I REALLY felt sorry for them.
I don't know how a few members of IMDb reviewed this movie with a 9 or above praising everything about it. All I can say is they were probably on drugs when they watched it or had something to do with the movie.
I would rather go to work for an entire week without pay than watch this again.
