Trench 11 is a slightly uneven outing, never quite sure if it wants to jump-scare us, creep us out or just science us into fear... The result is a decent thriller, and more than enough to satisfy until the next great war/horror comes along.
If there is one reason to recommend Trench 11 it is the glorious, gooey practical effects.
It's not smart enough to work as a thoughtful historical thriller, and there's a lack of intensity that would doom most other horror films instantly.
We're not talking enduring classic or anything, but as these things go it's pretty entertaining.
It's a zombie film, it's a WWI film, it's a science-run-amok film. But mostly it's a claustrophobic thriller about Allied soldiers fleeing a bunker with the ravenous infected below and kill-happy Germans above - 90 gripping minutes of literal escapism.
Trench 11 does not disappoint. The crew's decent into virtually the unknown will keep you in suspense. Scherman and team create a believable war-horror film.
What Scherman achieves is a bigger picture of World War I and the toll it takes on soldiers, all from underground with only a few individuals.
A decent instalment of a recurrent subgenre, Trench 11 manages to be several films at once, each complementing the other in their amalgamation into a singularly realised tale of dread and terror.
Packed with gore and atmosphere, it suffers from pacing issues and an out-of-place score.
Smartly, director Leo Scherman never goes for laughs in this sepia-toned period piece, instead creating a sense of 78-feet-below-ground claustrophobia that finds middle ground between The Thing and The Descent.
