Frankenstein’s Army

May 14, 2011

Do you still remember Worst Case Scenario? It was the super eerie trailer for a movie that never was, where creepy zombie-like nazis waded out from the ocean surf. Here’s the video, in case you haven’t seen it:

As I said, it never came to be. There are good news now, however. The film-maker’s new project, focusing on nazis creating super soldiers out of dead corpses is apparently on its way. See the full blurb here.

MPI Media Group, LA-based XYZ Films and Pellicola of Amsterdam have entered into a coproduction deal to produce Richard Raaphorst’s FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY. The production-distribution deal was negotiated by Greg Newman, Executive Vice President of MPI Media Group, parent company of Dark Sky Films, Nate Bolotin of XYZ and Daniel Koefoed of Pellicola. MPI Media Group is financing the production while MPI and XYZ are co-representing international sales rights. Shooting is to begin in the spring in Prague and Amsterdam and will be completed by late fall.

Raaphorst’s Worst Case Scenario stands as one of the great horror films that never was. The Nazi-zombie project whipped up a massive international following thanks to two early promo reels. But due to financing and production difficulties, the project was abandoned in 2009. Now, director Raaphorst will bring his visionary design skills to this new horror movie, to be distributed by MPI/Dark Sky Films in North America.

There are two teaser clips, nicely blending authentic footage with directed stuff. They work great, as you can see below.

Nice, nicey nice! I don’t know what it is about undead nazis. They just get me every time.
