Frankenstein's Army (2013)

Starring: Karl Roden
Director: Richard Raaphorst


Premise:
During WWII, soldiers find a hidded Nazi base where Dr. Frankenstein is beforming human experiments trying to create monster soldiers in order to turn the war around.

My Take:
There is a lot to like about this movie. There story is interesting as it combines a lot of different elements. The second half reminded me of a crazy, first person shooter, horror video game. The make effects and nightmarish monsters are incredibly. The cast is decent too. But the huge fault was making it a "found footage" style movie. Everything is first person point of view and cameras back then were larger, heavier, and noisier. Not to mention film reels would have to be inserted every few minutes. Sorry, I can't suspend my disbelief these sort on facts and so it ruined the movie a bit for me. Maybe others wont care about this detail. And in any case, the film is certain unique and worth watching

Rating: In the middle (maybe more)
