Review by James Klein

According to imdb.com, Operation Nazi Zombies was filmed in 1999 and released in 2003. Then why do we get the pleasure of having another re-release of this cheap, amateur piece of crap? I am unsure as to why this film is being thrown at the general public once again but dear God, this movie sucks.

I am really not so sure what the hell is going on in this “film” but its central story is about a soldier who was head of a platoon that were all killed by zombies, set up by another soldier. While he is in jail, he tells another soldier his story as what had happened. There are so many Privates, Lieutenants, Captains, Sergeants, thrown about all through this movie that I forgot whose rank certain soldiers had. But honestly, I really didn’t care. It doesn’t matter. And so, this inept platoon venture into the woods and come across this bunker where these zombies have been kept for some bizarre Nazi experiments. The rest of the movie is just a bunch of bad actors screaming and swearing at one another, shooting zombies before they themselves are used as lunch.

Once again, Brain Damage Films has distributed yet another shot on VHS horror film that one would make with his friends while bored on a Saturday afternoon. The movie is beyond cheap in that we get really awful sound where certain characters can hardly be heard, the lighting changes in between shots, the night sequences are impossible to see, the acting is piss poor as if the actors are performing on stage and not on film…err…video, whatever. Why does one character betray the platoon? Why does one character flip his marbles? Why is this movie presented in a window box format? And what is director Stewart thinking of when he composes shots of people’s nostrils? Did he bother to storyboard his movie?

The best thing I can say about this lame and awful movie is that some of the zombie make up effects are not bad. One zombie ripping out a soldiers intestines and one zombie getting his head stomped on looked somewhat realistic. No CGI appearances here and shockingly so. The rest of the film though is about as enjoyable as rubbing lemon juice on an open wound. But at least Operation Nazi Zombies was 83 minutes long. It’s even shorter once you use the fast forward button.
