“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.
