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 rented this movie from Sky and to be honest if there has ever been a bigger waste of 99p I can't think of it. Paper thin plot, dreadful stilted acting and a script that would disgrace a masturbating teenager. Pathetic special effects, laughable editing, a different colour every shot. Worst of all the direction. I do not know when I have seen worse direction in a film. I know this is low budget stuff, but surely there must be better projects for people to throw their money at? I just read that it won an award in Marbella. Perhaps they felt some sympathy for it. I didn't. It was a waste of 99p and 99 minutes of my life, neither of which I will get back. I can't believe the director will get another script. Perhaps he will, I shall certainly look out for his name and that of the writer- specifically so that I can keep their next straight-to-bargain-TV release at several arms' lengths.
