Storyline

In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers. When American astronaut James Washington puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected. Washington claims the mission is just a publicity stunt for the President of the United States, but what else could the man be but a scout for the imminent attack by Earth forces? The Fourth Reich must act. Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler and idealistic Renate Richter, travel to Earth to prepare the invasion. In the end when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities.

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, the far side of the moon is in daylight, and just before the Klaus and his entourage leave for Earth shortly thereafter, the sun is just setting. However, when the exploratory ship arrives on Earth, the moon is full - that is, the near side is fully lit. Since the length of a day on the moon is actually almost a month, it would take weeks for this change to occur, when the implied length of time in the film is at most a couple of days. See more »

Silly, great fun.
20 April 2014 | by russcrossleySee all my reviews

Being a life time fan of SF and absurd humour I loved this film on many levels. It's premise is ridiculous but such fun and the steam punk style effects are great. The acting is actually not bad for such a low budget project. Usually in low budget SF the acting is wooden and without emotion. Some of these performances are so over the top they fit the tone of the plot and action. I recommend this to anyone who loves camp SF.

The nazi angle is actually probable (with out the moon of course), and it would sure be nice if there were more moon missions as depicted in this film.

I can't wait for this teams next project.
