Dark Sky Films releases writer-director Richard Raaphorst’s Frankenstein’s Army on VOD and in select cities July 26th. And now we have the trailer, certainly an interesting concept!
Filmed in Prague and recently having its World Premiere at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Frankenstein’s Army marks the feature debut of Dutch director Richard Raaphorst, and has already received high critical acclaim.
“Using shocking vintage newsreel footage as his jumping-off point, Raaphorst has hit on a unique and bold premise. Toward the end of World War II, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Victor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary’s Frankenstein’s work to assemble an army of supersoldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades – a desperate Hitler’s last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.”
The highly anticipated film, which recently screened to acclaim at the Tribeca Film Festival, is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films, Los Angeles-based XYZ Films and Pellicola of Amsterdam.
