Title: Frankenstein's Army (2013)

I caught "Frankenstein's Army" on Amazon Prime. It's a surprisingly effective "found footage" horror movie.

I really liked some of the monster designs, but overall the rest was okay at best.

Yeah, there isn't much of a story to speak of. Some Russian soldiers find a Nazi scientist's secret lab and then monsters attack. That's about it.

Of course, that trivializes the most important part of the movie: monsters attack!

I mean, take a look at this guy:

The whole movie's just like that: lunatic steampunk Nazi castoffs from Wolfenstein. I recommend it for that alone.

The monster designs were PERFECT.  I loved them all, but that's really all the movie had going for it. 

I don't get why it was a found footage movie either.  I'd think a movie with regular shots and camera work would have helped move things along so much better.

I like found footage movies but I agree with you on this count.  I loved the movie, but it would have worked better in a different narrative format. Still, the monsters were pretty rockin' awesome.

That was obviously taken from the film's "prop" department  :wink:
