Critic Reviews for Legion of the Dead (Le6ion of the Dead)
Sort of like how I imagine Samuel Beckett would read while huffing accelerant.
Recommended solely to those who aspire for a career in blood-packets and explosions of green bile, Legion of the Dead is just a mess - in every sense of the word.
Audience Reviews for Legion of the Dead (Le6ion of the Dead)
After seeing the third Ittenbach film I can safely say I am done watching his stuff. This one (I saw the producer's cut) was the best but that isn't really saying a whole lot. The plot's all over the place as well as the acting and there's actually less gore than the other two I have seen but it's clearly better made and for more money. I wish I could say I was interested to see what he's done since Legion but.... no, not really.More
My first taste of German splatter director Olaf Ittenbach and the film didn't turn out to be as bad as a lot of reviews suggested. The plot is all over the place but it's unpredictable and introduces a whole bunch of nutty characters early on who all merge together towards the end for the final showdown against a Demon God who's attempting to raise an army of the dead. Pretty funny at times too but some of the humour was a bit childish occassionally. But the film really does deliver some top-notch gore throughout which is really all I wanted to see. It's one that's far from great but also one you cannot accuse of being boring, so don't go into this one expecting too much and enjoy the chaos of it all!More
