Frankenstein's Army Blu-ray

Posted August 7, 2013 01:35 PM by Webmaster

Dark Sky FilmsMPI and Dark Sky Films have announced the Blu-ray release of Richard Raaphorst's Frankenstein's Army, starring Alexander Mercury, Karel Roden, Joshua Sasse, Andrei Zayats, Luke Newberry and Robert Gwilym. The well-received horror-comedy arrives on Blu-ray on September 10th.

Official Synopsis: In the dying days of World War II, a battalion of Russian soldiers find themselves lost in enemy territory in eastern Germany. One soldier (Alexander Mercury, The Golden Compass) has been ordered to make a propaganda film as the squadron makes its way across the wintry landscape, and what follows is a thrilling mix of found-footage shocks and classic horror. Stumbling upon a village decimated by an unseen terror, the Russians are lured into the secret lab of deranged scientist Viktor (Hellboy's Karel Roden). Viktor has unearthed the journals of the legendary Dr. Victor Frankenstein and has used them to assemble an army of supersoldiers stitched together from the body parts of fallen Germans - a desperate Hitler's last ghastly ploy to escape defeat. Leaderless and faced with dissension in their dwindling ranks, the Russians must find the courage to face down this fearsome new brigade of flesh-and-metal "zombots," or die trying.

Filmed at abandoned World War II sites in Prague and throughout Europe, Frankenstein's Army was an Official Selection at the Tribeca Film Festival and features make-up effects from the team who worked on the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films.

The Blu-ray release of Frankenstein's Army features 1080p video, lossless audio, and the following extras:

  • Making-Of Featurette: Revealing all facets of the filmmaking process, this 31 minute featurette uncovers everything from Richard Raaphorst's creature designs, to the film's pre-production process, to the actual creature creation by the Unreal FX team.
  • Interviews: Director Richard Raaphorst, Cinematographer Bart Beekman, Production Designer Jinrich Koci, Unreal FX Team, The Frankestein's Army Actors
  • Five Creature Spots:
    • Burnt Match Man Creature Spot
    • Mosquito Man Creature Spot
    • Propellerhead Creature Spot
    • Teddy Bear Woman Creature Spot
    • Razor Teeth Creature Spot

After having watched the trailer I now find myself fairly interested in watching this.

Heard great things, as it is currently on VOD. But with a Sept 10th release date and a cheap preorder price, I'll wait and grab the Blu-ray.

Looks real cool! And judging by the experiments and projects the Nazis were doing during WWII, I wouldn't be surprised if this was loosely based on a true story :P

Well received as in Shaun of the Dead? Or well received as in Iron Sky? BIG difference.

Caught this in a theater as a double feature with Manborg. The only real problem I had was that the sound in the theater was terrible, making a lot of the dialogue difficult to discern. Won't be a problem at home. Very fun movie with some cool scares and absolutely great practical effects.

Would have been great if they included Raaphorst's Worst Case Scenario promo shorts on the disc.

It's a real shame Dark Sky has completely abandoned quality catalog titles and is instead focusing on new and basically DTV films like this. And 'well-received'? By whom? It has a 39% audience rating on RT (69% among critics), and a 49% overall rating on Metacritic! It didn't win any actual AWARDS at The Tribeca Film Festival, but it was 'an official selection'? What does that even mean?
