Frankenstein's Army

slantmagazine.com
13 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Richard Raaphorst's Frankenstein's Army may not reinvent the found-footage wheel, but at least it has visual imagination and the freshness of its setting on its side. In the last days of WWII, a unit of Russian soldiers find themselves on a mission to rescue a group of comrades—but the assignment, needless to say, isn't what it at first seems.

DVD Verdict
10 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Man, am I conflicted about Frankenstein's Army , the independent horror film that received a limited theatrical and VOD release earlier this year and which is now being released on Blu-ray courtesy of genre stalwarts Dark Sky Films. On the one hand, the movie contains moments of true invention and brutal effectiveness. On the other, some of the qualities that make it unique are the same things that don't really work about it.

Frankenstein's Army Blu-ray Review

9 September 2013
  • Summary: If Frankenstein's Army had to be categorized with any specificity, you'd have to invent a new amalgamated sub-genre: the practical special effects-driven zombie-robot nazisploitation found footage mad scientist monster movie. (Or P.S.E.D.Z.R.N.F.F.M.S.M.M. for not-so-short.) The elements here are certainly familiar—the resurrected Nazis of Dead Snow , the unethical experimentation of Mary Shelly's original Frankenstein , the shaky cam of Blair Witch and Cloverfield —but...

Frankenstein’s Army (Blu-ray Review)

5 September 2013
  • Conclusion: This Blu-ray of Frankenstein’s Army is a turd painted gold.  It’s got STELLAR video and audio quality.  Some of the best you’ll see.  It’s got a half hour “Making of” featurette.  The price tag is incredibly appealing for a new release (currently $10).  But at the end of the day, it’s still Frankenstein’s Army .

  • Excerpt: Oh, Movie! You had me [click on the thumbnail to enlarge] at " Frankenstein's Army ". I thought you did, anyway. I mean, this is a found footage flick set against the backdrop of World War II. A propaganda documentary film crew is tagging along with a reconnaissance team to showcase the glory of the Russian army, and along the way, they stumble onto the Nazis' secret weapon.

Rock! Shock! Pop!

  • Summary: Frankenstein’s Army was a fun surprise, a very creative movie with some fine performances and consistently impressive effects work. It’s not a deep film, there are no great allegories here to analyze nor is there any sort of hidden meaning nor is the picture all too concerned with realism.

  • Excerpt: Frankenstein’s Army is a ludicrous World War II horror flick bogged down by its found-footage gimmick, which is compromised and contradicted so often that it becomes a distraction. Eventually, a viewer might start to wish that director Richard Raaphorst had either opted for total verisimilitude, replicating the look and feel of wartime documentary footage, or that he’d directed the movie as straight horror; either option would be preferable to his confused grab bag of...

  • Summary: Frankenstein’s Army is een cultfilm met de hoofdletter C. Op pulphorror gebied is het misschien wel een van de beste films van de laatste jaren en dat is mede te danken aan het goede acteerwerk. De zombots zien er bizar uit en er zitten hele heftige scènes in. Als je een zwakke maag hebt, dan kun je deze film beter links laten liggen. De Making Of op de dvd is een geweldige extra en duurt maar liefst 30 minuten.
