I didn't know anything about this movie until I picked it up in the DVD club. I read the back cover summary and was happy. I mean how bad can a combination of zombies and Nazis be ? But I was not happy after watching it. Many important details deviate from what could have been a classic, without apparent gain. I mean, why did it have to take place in the present ? And, most importantly, why did the zombies have to be able to materialize at will all over the place ? I mean they are zombies, undead, you shoot them and they don't die, isn't that enough ? Maybe it's me, but I always thought invisibility to be an idiotic and cheap trick to create an atmosphere.
Next, the script misses opportunities for great horror sequences, with the Nazi experiments on prisoners (they don't actually elaborate on that), or making the zombies able to use guns (they don't), etc.
In all, I expected to see a movie where a WW-2 squad enters an abandoned Nazi experiment camp, push some wrong button on an occult machine and Nazi zombies rise all over the place and all hell breaks loose. What's better than this ? Instead, we get a modern squad that goes into an abandoned German bunker, simply turns the power on, then zombies materialize about half a mile away in the woods and start walking towards the bunker, powered by some advanced physics machine that controls them. I don't know, it just doesn't feel very right.

In a seedy bar in a town ravaged by war, mysterious businessman Hunt hires ex-marine D.C. to assemble a crack team of ex-soldiers to protect him on a dangerous journey into no-man's land. To this gang of hardened warriors, battle-worn veterans and borderline criminals killing is just a job - and one they enjoy. Their mission - to scope out an old military bunker. It should be easy - 48 hours at the most. Lots of cash for little risk, or so he says. Once at the outpost, the men make a horrific discovery that turns their mission on its head - the scene of a bloody and gruesome series of experiments, carried out by the Nazis on their own soldiers during WWII. Amid the carnage, they find something even more disturbing - someone who's still alive. As war rages above ground, and a mysterious enemy emerges from the darkness below, D.C. and his men find themselves trapped in a claustrophobic and terrifying scenario. Their mission is no longer one of safe-guarding - it's one of survival. ...
