Frankenstein Has an Army and He’s Unleashing it in First Trailer

Check out the first trailer for director Richard Raaphorst’s “Frankenstein’s Army”, which is, not surprisingly, about a mad scientist who creates an army to fight his enemies. In this case, it’s WWII, and his enemies are a platoon of Soviet soldiers. Which is nice. I’m tired of seeing American soldiers getting ripped to shreds by wacky Nazi weaponry. As you might expect, it looks pretty damn ridiculous, but given the title and premise, it’s really nothing I wasn’t expecting. Which isn’t to say it shouldn’t be fun times in the ol abandoned factory.

Vodka, anyone?

In the waning days of World War II, a battalion of Russian soldiers find themselves lost in enemy territory. Stumbling upon a village decimated by an unseen terror, they discover that a mad scientist (Hellboy’s Karel Roden) conducts experiments to fuse flesh and steel, creating an unstoppable army of undead soldiers. Leaderless and faced with dissention amongst their dwindling ranks, they must find the courage to face down an altogether new menace—or die trying.

The film’s biggest name is Karel Roden, playing the mad scientist. He’s joined by a lot of people I’ve never heard of, including Joshua Sasse, Robert Gwilym, Alexander Mercury, Luke Newberry, Hon Ping Tang, and Andrei Zayats.
