Movie Info

Rob Green makes his feature debut with this moody horror flick about war, paranoia, and unspeakable evil. As the Allies close in around the Nazis, pounding them with relentless air strikes, a band of Germans takes refuge from the onslaught in a concrete bunker deep in the Black Forest. Long-forgotten tunnels extend from the bunker, further into the wilderness. Shell-shocked and exhausted, the survivors argue about provisions and strategies during a lull in fighting. As they slip into sleep, the horrors, murders, and plagues that rocked Europe for centuries seep into their souls. When the next wave of attacks threatens to blow them to smithereens, the war-weary group ventures deeper and deeper into the tunnels as they combat fear and insanity. Jason Flemyng, Charley Boorman, and Andrew Lee Potts star in this film which was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

While The Bunker is never outright scary, it definitely has its fair share of moments that are creepy and unnerving.

Call it "Saving Private Ryan" meets "The Amityville Horror" or "Platoon" meets "Session 9."

Audience Reviews for The Bunker

Good acting, well shot, and decently suspenseful. Not bad as a movie at all, however personally I'm not a big fan of films that take place in a single location for the entire length of the film.

The Bunker came up with a great setting for a horror movie. It starts around the tale end of WWII and seven German soldiers guarding a bunker against oncoming allied forces. Deep in the bunker is a haunted tunnel system that slowly starts affecting their minds. It does a good job creating a sense of fear of the dark moments and desperation among the soldiers. Unfortunately it was a little slow paced and I thought the story fell a bit short at the end. I also had trouble getting used to German soldiers talking with English accents! The movie is hardly gory, so if you are looking for a watch in the dark horror movie check it out>
