“Noth­ing so ridicu­lous can ex­ist,” scoffs one of Sol­diers Of The Damned’s Ger­mans. He’s re­fer­ring to Himm­ler’s in­fa­mous oc­cult depart­ment, the Ahnenerbe, but he might as well be talk­ing about the grim trend for cheapo Nazi mon­ster movies. Un­for­tu­nately, they’re both real.

This par­tic­u­lar ex­am­ple sees a Ger­man reg­i­ment es­cort­ing a sci­en­tist into a for­est, where they find them­selves haunted by the ghosts of their own vic­tims.

It’s heavy- handed stuff, and the stilted di­a­logue and wooden act­ing only serve to heighten the awk­ward­ness. Even the real hor­rors al­luded to can’t lend this slop any cred­i­bil­ity. Ridicu­lous, in­deed.

Ex­tras: Half- hour Mak­ing Of; three fea­turettes; iso­lated score; trailer.
