Storyline

This is a movie set during WWII and involves Captain Stone and a platoon of American and Finnish soldiers on a mission to find a bunker held by the Germans. On the way there they come under fire and at the same time run in to some German soldiers that seem to be "undead". How is this possible? Their platoon is almost completely killed off apart from a few of them, including Capt. Stone. They move on and run in to another survivor, a Russian soldier. They all try to survive and end up at the bunker they were meant to take out. But once inside they find out just how the German soldiers became the "undead". Written by Michael Hallows Eve

Undead Story
30 July 2019 | by TweetienatorSee all my reviews

I would like to rate War of the Dead higher - production etc. are of good quality (for a B movie) but the trouble with War of the Dead is the storyline - too repetitive and the longer the movie rolls on the more it just gets boring. Like many movies of our days the trouble is not the production and acting team but the writers. Still, War of the Dead beats easy all those "dudes have some leisure time and make a zombie movie using a digi-cam and some gallons of fake blood"-movies, and could be easy a 6 or 7 - if providing a better plot. As it is, I rate 4.
