HERE ARE ALL THE JUICY DETAILS:
MOVIE: WAR OF THE DEAD
“A non-stop, living-dead actioner!” RATING: 4 STARS.
Nazi zombies = no brainer fun!
In a plot that could’ve been knocked out during a coffee break, Hitler’s henchmen have been slaughtering Ruskie captives and attempting to resurrect them as indestructible murder machines. A couple of years after the project gets abandoned, some American and Finnish troops stumble across the vicious test subjects and, naturally, all hell breaks loose.
With realism taking a holiday and narrative trimmed to the bare minimum, this flick’s selling point is its excessive, flesh-ripping carnage – delivered at a breakneck pace. And it ticks all the boxes without being crass or going for cheap laughs. Granted there are moments of serious scenery chewing – take a bow Mark Wingett from TV’s The Bill – however that’s par for the course, considering the barmy scenario.
As for the kill crazy zombies, the fact that they’re not George A. Romero-style shufflers, but swifter than Olympic sprinters (à la 28 Days Later) really amps up the excitement. It all adds up to a triumphant blast of blood-drenched escapism – which is damn good going for director Marko Mäkilaakso, someone best known for documentaries in his native Finland.
