#7. Horrors of War (2006)

DVD Synopsis: Hitler’s determination to win World War II at all costs, combined with his obsession with science and the paranormal give rise to a deadly type of warfare. Hitler unleashes his secret weapons – unstoppable Nazi super-soldiers – onto the advancing Allied army. After suffering great losses the American army reassigns soldiers to a mission to destroy Hitler’s weapons lab. After they are shot down in occupied France, the soldiers find themselves caught between the German army and a creature that can not be described.

Horrors of War is an ultra-low budget horror movie, yet what it lacks in technical wizardry it makes up for in engaging it’s audience (to the filmmakers credit, let me point out that a lack of funds didn’t hamper either the handiwork of the make-up artists, who create some pretty disturbing creatures, or the opening credit sequence, which is really pretty sharp). 

Your enjoyment of Horrors of War, as it is with any micro-budget film, depends entirely on how you approach it. Personally, I had a pretty good time.

This is not the genre/type of movie I normally watch, but I enjoyed it. I kept having "Thriller" music video flashbacks during the scene where the werewolf was chasing the soldiers through the woods....Very well done low budget film. Great performances and monster special effects.

Jill: Yeah, this one's an ultra-low budget affair, but it kept my attention as well (and I remember that scene you're talking're right, very "Thriller-esque"!)

Glad you're enjoying the movies thus far. I hope the streak continues with #8!
