DOG SOLDIERS meets DEAD SNOW in this action-packed shock-fest in which a small group of Allied soldiers comes up against a horde of Nazi zombies.
At the beginning of World War II in 1939, in a secret bunker near the border of Russia and Finland, the Nazis began “Anti-Death” experiments on captured Russian soldiers. Two years later the project was abandoned with all records destroyed on the orders of Adolf Hitler and the test subjects buried in mass graves nearby.
Soon after those events, an elite squad of US soldiers is teamed up with a Finnish task force and sent on a mission to seek out and destroy the bunker along with any inhabitants remaining there. Following an ambush en route to their target, during which the Allies lose a considerable number of men, to their shock and horror they later find themselves face-to-face with the same enemy soldiers they had eliminated in the earlier skirmish. The big problem this time around is the enemy is more fearless than before and much harder to kill. After all, they’re already dead.
“An extremely impressive debut by Finland’s Marko Mäkilaakso… mixes slices of ‘The Guns Of Navarone’ and ‘The Dirty Dozen’ with ‘Day Of The Dead’.” – FANGORIA
“For those of you who like your horror with a heavy dose of action adrenaline… delivers enough hard hitting action to satisfy folks liking a bit of punch with their scares.” – AICN
War of the Dead (cert. 15) will be released on DVD (£12.99) by Momentum Pictures on 28th May 2012.
