Now, if you were to ask me, “Chuckie, what are some of your favorite gory movies?” I would probably say, “The first ones that come to mind is ‘Riki-oh,’ ‘Brain Dead’ and ‘Tokyo Gore Police’.” Well, I think after watching Richard Raaphorst’s “Frankenstein’s Army” red band trailer, I can (and hopefully) add another one to my list, because judging from this trailer, gore hounds (like me) will be damn pleased.
The premise is simply, a battalion of Russian soldiers stumble into what looks like an abandon house, but are completely wrong when they discover that a mad scientist, Karl Roden (Hellboy), is conducting experiments (with flesh and steel), and creating the ultimate army of the undead. Now, I don’t know about you, but that sounds freaking awesome. Hesitant? How about checking out the trailer for yourself:
In the waning days of World War II, a battalion of Russian soldiers find themselves lost in enemy territory. Stumbling upon a village decimated by an unseen terror, they discover that a mad scientist (Hellboy’s Karel Roden) conducts experiments to fuse flesh and steel, creating an unstoppable army of undead soldiers. Leaderless and faced with dissention amongst their dwindling ranks, they must find the courage to face down an altogether new menace – or die trying.
