Taking place somewhere toward the end of World War II, a platoon of Russian soldiers receive a distress call which sends them to an abandoned mining town. While they make their way over, we find out just enough about the different characters to be able to tell them apart. Other than that the movie is off to a pretty slow start. Thinking they’ll find some POW’s in the town, the Russkies find a whole bunch of creatures that have been assembled from human body parts and weapons and who only have one directive: kill!

We quickly learn that the Nazis have teamed up with Viktor ‘Alive! It’s alive!’ Frankenstein in an attempt to create a super-army consisting of steampunk soldiers with machetes for hands, propellers instead of faces and even one dude with a drill where his face should be.

There really isn’t much more to the story… Richard Raaphorst’s first feature film is as trashy as can be but it’s a nice addition to the found footage genre, it’s funny and there are plenty of wtf? moments… One for the horror fans!
