large_frankensteins_army_1
After months reading about Richard Raaphorst’s Nazi era found footage zombie movie, I was rather underwhlemed by the whole experience. The central conceit, in which a young Russian soldier is ordered to document the mission of his squad, which happens upon a remote lab where the deranged Dr. Frankenstein’s journal is being used as a guide to reanimating the dead. Needless to say almost everyone meets a gloriously sticky end, while the tone is kept relatively light, campy and humourous throughout. The big problem with the film, however, is that it’s biggest strength – the monster designs – are largely obscured by the insufferable shaky cam, which alienated me very early on and only got worse once the action kicked in.
