FRANKENSTEIN'S ARMY takes place toward the end of World War II, as Russian soldiers push into eastern Germany and stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Viktor Frankenstein.

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.

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.

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.

Just feels like great potential was wasted on a movie interested in gore and shock value over atmosphere and genuine terror.

Audience Reviews for Frankenstein's Army


'Frankenstein's Army'. Big Daddys and the like from BioShock with a much shakier cam than the game offers. Didn't work for me.


Super Reviewer


Proof that the found-footage genre of horror still has teeth in it, Frankenstein's Army is not really a found-footage Frankenstein film like certain other ones (although it does have a minor connection) but instead a thrilling, twisted, and creepy Nazi horror film about a group of Russian soldiers discovering the horrifying remnants of Nazi experimentation. Original and scary visuals keep Frankenstein's Army pumping until the very end as we are drug through a labyrinth of body horror.


2.5 stars is generous for this, but you gotta love zombie like dudes with saws and giant lobster claw hands and propeller heads. Strange film with interesting costumes, but kinda boring.
