Editorial Reviews

In the dying 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 re lured into the secret lab of a deranged scientist (Hellboy s Karel Roden) and forced to face off against his army of horrific flesh-and-metal war machines. Leaderless and faced with dissention amongst their dwindling ranks, the Russians must find the courage to face down this terrifying new menace or die trying. A nightmarish fantasy thrill ride unlike any other, Richard Raaphorst s FRANKENSTEIN S ARMY is a delirious plunge into the darkest depths of insanity.

Customer Reviews

Wow this one was pretty crazy, some really good special effects too.
Jarrod
I can take or leave the first person camera perspective of the film, but I do not feel that it takes away from the overall experience.
B. Roth
The main problem is that the soldiers are extremely unlikable and the monsters have no personality, humanity or story behind them.

When you're going to make a movie and call it "Frankenstein's Army," you'd better be willing to serve up something that lives up to the title! Director Richard Raaphorst draws from the real life experimentation conducted by Nazi scientists to create a movie that goes bat guano crazy with the idea. And I mean that as a huge compliment. The film may not have an intricate plot or complex characterizations, but I doubt anyone approaching "Frankenstein's Army" is expecting a thoughtful drama. What it does present is an elaborate and macabre world of engineered monsters that are both scary and funny. It is like a vision of steampunk technology combined with biological carnage, and it makes this film a visceral sensation. The movie combines over-the-top acting, unsettling visuals, and deranged humor to create something that feels startlingly fresh. Perhaps this isn't a great movie, but I admire the thought and creativity that went behind these fantastic monsters. And at the end of the day, if you fall for these creations than you'll get swept up into the experience. If you don't like the "army," you won't like the movie. Simple as that.

The film employs the increasingly tiring "found footage" style of filmmaking, meaning that one of the characters is holding the camera that records the action. Although this is a less expensive way to shoot a movie, it can become problematic when the camera needs to film a sequence where it doesn't make sense for the character to stand there and do so. Surprisingly, "Frankenstein's Army" actually handles this tricky technique quite well. The film is a historical document following a band of Russian soldiers as they traverse across German territory in World War II.

I just now got up off of my couch to come and write this. After watching Frankenstein's Army, I lay on my couch and stared at my ceiling and talked out loud to myself at intervals, every minute or so..
I've watched hundreds of horror films. Believe me, i have seen so many; Indie, 80's, The French films (which have a knack for disturbing me so after "Inside" i said no more, LOL) and 'some' Hollywood flicks. I have an affinity for the 70's where heavy atmosphere and suspense was a staple of that era in horror movies, e.g; "Magic", "Death dream" and "Black Christmas". You see, Im not the teenager i once was, growing up in the 80's, so i cant handle aimless, plotless brutality and graphic violence any more, although the 80's stuff had suspense and plot as well as gore. Yes I might be a bit weak nowadays as far as what i can stomach and enjoy, thats why i wouldn't watch the Human Centipede or even a film like Martyrs, even if the latter is said to be very good. Im not judging these films I just get PTS very easily, BUT, this was not the case for this flick, the savage happenings here, served a purpose, which is to draw you into this insane world..
Frankensteins Army was one of those brilliant nightmares that kept my heart beating hard beneath my ribcage as if i had just smoked a joint of "too-powerful weed" all to myself in one sitting.
The monsters were nightmares. Creeping, clanking, crushing metal nightmares.. Jesus. The camera view of the film was key, it definitely puts you into that chaos, too damned real. The violence was there, but aside from mine-carts and rooms of thousands of body parts, it wasn't so graphic that it became overwhelming.

If you are a true fan of Practical Effects and Gore you will enjoy this film. I enjoyed seeing all of the different creations. It feels like you are along for the ride through a psychotic house of horrors! The first 20 minutes or so are slower, but it gets crazy after that. Watch it if you want a fun, disturbing, bloody, good time like they used to make in the 1980's.

WOW! Every once in a while a movie comes along that afterwards I kinda wonder "did I really just see what I think I saw?". This was one of those movies. As a horror fan who grew up in the 60's and 70's I remember what films were like before all the CGI technologies came about and this movie is a great example of how to make a freaky and entertaining movie the old fashioned way. This is horror at it's best!

I thought that this movie looked really cool from the trailers, and it was. My only wish was that there were more monsters! The ones that were in the movie were pretty cool but I just wanted more! It's also pretty awesome how there are no CG effects...it's all real.

I love monster movies so went into this feeling excited. It was a lot of fun . Not really scary but had moments that jolted and the monster creations were just fantastic. The director captured the insanity of this well insane situation and did a great job.Well done.

I would like to start this review by saying "NO CGI AND ITS ABOUT TIME!!!". Well, I can finally write a positive review of a film that isnt 20 years old. I have been following the directors work since I seen his teaser trailers for "Worst Case Scenario". I also dont understand how there can be negative reviews of this film, people are insane sometimes. We live in a world that is up to its eye balls in LAZY CGI EFFECTS AND NO HEART. This film delivers the goods. Check out the Pros and Cons.

Pros
+No CGI
+Great Storyline
+The Found Footage wasnt shot terrible like Blair Witch Project, it works for his film!
+Very Gory
+Amazing Monsters!
+Great acting from the Mad Doctor
+One of the best horror films I have ever seen. Period.

Cons
-Dont really have any, and thats no BS.

In a nutshell, Frankenstein's Army is a fun film. Its a throwback to old School horror when they put HEART into their work. Its a film I will watch again and again years from now. I look forward to Richard Raaphorst (Director) future projects. Nice Job sir, and Thank you.
