Follows five battle-hardened American soldiers assigned to hold a French Chateau near the end of World War II. Formerly occupied by the Nazi high command, this unexpected respite quickly descends into madness when they encounter a supernatural enemy far more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield.
Though set in France, the film was shot largely on location in Bulgaria. See more »
The captions in the beginning place the action in France during 1944. Given the climate and the fact that the Allies landed in Normandy in June with Paris being liberated in August, but there is still a significant German presence in France, one can deduce the events of the film happened in late August or early September 1944. Also, the platoon appears to be on a vanguard mission to secure a strategic location. Yet, Tapper tells a story of not sleeping while on a march to Stuttgart, a German city close to Berlin. This is not possible, as no American or Allied troops had entered Germany by the time the events of the movie take place. See more »
Intriguing start, but fizzles out completely
The first half of this movie is actually interesting and this movie blends a WWII theme with a paranormal theme quite well. However after the initial setup has passed this movie stalls and can't seem to find out how to best continue the action or wrap up an ending. Some jump scares and a few creepy scenes but nothing overly engaging or worth noting.
Then it's almost like the director had to wrap up shooting or ran out of money as the ending is rushed and is over in maybe 5-8 mins. Eric Bress writes and directs this and is most noted for the Final Destination series and the Butterfly Effect, 10-15 years ago. Sadly he hasn't created nothing in between now and then and hasn't learned how to create a good ending yet.
