Frankenstein's Army Reviews

Bill Gibron
PopMatters

As a fright flick it more or less fails. But as an example of how to make genuinely creepy monsters in this new, CG heavy age, it's a masterwork.

Anton Bitel
Grolsch Film Works

a 'mad scientist' movie made with outsized love that no reasonable viewer will be able too leave unrequited, all stitched together with political satire that cynically paints Frankenstein's freakish army as the final solution to the madness of war.

What Culture

This thinly-premised WW2-set found footage flick just about succeeds by way of its excellent creature designs and unexpectedly clever political gags.

It's a bravura if deeply silly demonstration of what clever moviemakers can do on meager resources.

We Got This Covered

While our story leaves much to be desired, the fantastical creature work in Frankenstein's Army is too creatively ingenious to ignore, making these steampunk undead monstrosities worth the watch alone.

There's little more in the way of plot, but that's no problem. "Frankenstein's Army" is funny and original, with innovative costumes and set designs.

Narrative depth may be in short supply, but the energy, invention and humor are bracing. And let's face it: Sometimes cheese tastes good.

Designed by Raaphorst and brought to life by Rogier Samuels's effects studio, Unreal, the half-glimpsed creatures are magnificent and repellent.

Pic's monotone edges towards monotony by the end of the third act, but as no-budget calling-card features go, Frankenstein's Army remains a grisly cut above.

A WWII found footage horror movie? Yep. And it's good? Yep!

The List

You've seen found footage horror and Nazi zombies before, but Frankenstein's Army mashes them together in a way that breathes new life into tired genre conventions.

Where Frankenstein's Army really shines is with the stunning designs and monster make-up, with the film delivering old-style lumbering monsters without resorting to CGI.

We never care about any of the soldiers. What we do care about are the monsters, and with good reason: They're pips.

September 23, 2013

Frankenstein's Army is a ludicrous World War II horror flick bogged down by its found-footage gimmick, which is compromised and contradicted so often that it becomes a distraction.

Nick Schager
The Dissolve

At every turn, Frankenstein's Army exhibits a preference for jolt scares and gore over actual suspense, which never materializes, thanks to a general indifference to plot and minimal interest in character

The found-footage gimmick mostly comes off as window dressing for what turns out to be yet another mad-scientist-run-amok romp.

Like the monster evoked by the film's title, everything feels tacked together.
