Review: Operation Nazi Zombies (2003)
A team of Army Special Forces is sent into a secluded, secret biological weapons facility, only to fall prey to the specimens of a Nazi experiment that was recreated by the Army Chemical Corps and the CIA after World War II. Operation Nazi Zombies is written and directed by David B. Stewart III who also handled music, costume and set design. The acting, camerawork and editing is decent but the film is a too dark in some scenes. Some of the flesh-eating zombies looks pretty good and the gore make-up fx, all practical, is decent. The special forces team looks more like mall security guards than a military elite unit considering their clothing, equipment and weapons (most of them are armed with only automatic handguns) and several of the actors look too young for their parts, this is most likely the reason why several of the special forces members wear black ski masks. The film is played straight but there are several moments of unintentional humor in it, you´ll have too see it for yourself as I try too keep my blog free from spoilers. Operation Nazi Zombies has been released earlier on DVD as Maplewoods which is it´s original title.
This review is based upon a password protected online screener provided to me by Brain Damage Films.
Rating: 2½ out of 7. Operation Nazi Zombies is decent entertainment for the moment, it sure isn´t the best zombie movie ever made but enjoy it for what it is.
