Well,congratulate the MPAA for another job well done.
I have owned the Japanese and German dvd of this movie
for about a year now.I received my copy of the American
release today and what I got was a superb picture,
top notch sound, and EVERY GOOD PART REMOVED AND CUT
FROM THE MOVIE!WHY IN THIS DAY AND AGE SHOULD WE HAVE
TO HAVE THIS MUCH CENSORSHIP IN A SILLY HORROR MOVIE?
There are many movies out there that show way more gore
than what was taken from this movie.Those of you that
have the foreign versions of this film,hold on to them!
The first cut appears in the first 10 minutes when our
first victim is recruited for the legion.Yes folks,the
last half of that scene is totally gone!OLAF ITTENBACH
is a GERMAN FILM EXTRAORDINAIRE who is on the rise in
the business and is very god-like to the serious horror
fan who likes their special effects on the outrageous
side.He does ALL of the special make-up,writes and
directs all of his movies!This movie un-cut is a 5 star
movie all the way.It has humor,action,suspense,special
effects(very little cgi-mostly original),and a story.
Oh well,sorry to have to break the news.There is no reason
that this movie should have been edited this heavily or
even edited at all!Major letdown!Well,I hope DOG SOLDIERS
is much better.Thank god for multi-region dvd players!

From what I read of other viewers this American version was cut and was supposed to be much better than this. But wow!! I have not given a 1 star for a film in a long time. The film does not have any continuity and makes absolutely no sense at all. It now makes all the more sense when the others who have watched the uncut versions, to see how butchered this film is because it makes absolutely no sense at all. THe only good thing I could say about this is it does have some humor in it that will totally make u laugh but its not enough to make up for the ... of film this is. If I could go back to the past in a time machine, I would tell myself this was a mistake.
Good points: some humor that is unique
Bad points: choppy story, bad plot, boring film, no action
Overal grade : F-

I rented this movie tonight and just finsihed watching it. I thought I would write a reveiw to save someone from buying this awful movie. Thank god I only rented it. Until tonight I thought no move could be as bad as "The Jersey Devil" (another movie to stay away from) but this movie proved me wrong. I watched the whole thing from beginning to end and I couldn't tell you what it was about to save my life. It skips from scene to scene and never explains ANYTHING. I don't know what idiot let this movie be released but he should be hunted down and tortured! Whatever you do, don't rent, buy or watch this movie. It will only make you angry that you can't get back the time you wasted on watching it.

Please do yourself a favour and do not spend money in a movie so edited and cut that it's impossible to understand it. I bought the movie because I believed it had something to do with vampires (if you see the cover you'll understand), however it is far from it. Anyway, I cheched the "Making - of" documentary and found all the escenes that I didn't see in the movie. I believe they cut almost 15 minutes of the film. It might be a good movie, but not in this condition. It should have never been released like this. REAL PITTY.

Ok, so it wasn't the movie of the year. It doesn't however necessarily deserve all the bad reviews. Perhaps, the plot could have been slightly more developed, rather than handing us snipets of the stories motive. The reason that I say this is that if it were simply a slasher style film with little plot that would have been sufficient, but the storyline for this film required that the viewer have more knowledge of what the events leading up to and occuring in the film concerned. High points of the film included the following: decent acting, and subtle dark humor, as well as a few moderately entertaing action sequences. Of course, the highest point of the film...actress Kimberly Liebe. Her acting was comparable with the acting of the other cast members, but her beauty was the most memorable! I give this film 3 stars.

I would like someone at Artisan to explain to me why they even chose to release a movie by Olaf Ittenbach. This is a director who is known for comedic horror soaked with over the top gore. This Artisan release is so severely edited that not only is there very little gore, but key character development suffers, the story loses continuity, and the comedy is left feeling flat. This is not how this movie was intended to be seen. Imagine watching "Aliens" but without all the scenes involving suspense and the aliens themselves and you can get an idea of how this version compares to the uncut release.
If you must, buy it for the "Making Of Legion Of The Dead" documentary. It's far more entertaining and infinitely gorier than the movie itself.

I admire Olaf Ittenbach for compensating low budget film making by embelishing his films with extreme scenes of violence and gore. It feels as though he is try to impress upon the viewer an image that will stay in their mind other than a story line begs for more attention after the film is over. The actors are always someone you have never heard of but for me that makes movies more interesting. Aside from some slap stick humor and the typical fun house gags, this film is truly missing some parts. I mean literally. This film has been obviously cut in a super awful way. So much that it sometimes jumps to the next scene without knowing what happened in the last. Ittenbach is well known for his shlocky gore but it seems the ratings police weren't having any of it. I mean none! The story becomes almost incomprehensible towards the end because of what was cut in this film. A truly censored film made for American audiences. What an absolute shame. It deserves a better release and people who enjoy horror films deserve better treatment from the ratings authorities.

It is hard to recommend this film to anyone because of it's inconsistencies. One might be intrigued by the hype or that it is an Olaf Ittenbach film but I am waiting for the uncut, uncensored version to view this movie again. If there ever is one. I won't hold my breath though.
