Because Nazi Zombies Are So Clich

Nazi zombies? Pffft. Been done. Nazi Frankensteins? Huh! I’m intrigued! Tell me more, official synopsis:

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 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.

This is the summary for (and trailer to) Frankenstein’s Army. I don’t know if the entire film will be done in the faux-’40s film style, but man, it would be awesome if it is. Seriously, if you had shown me the trailer without the tag at the end displaying the website I probably would have believed it was an old German movie or something. Admittedly, I’m not very bright, though, so we should probably take that into account. At any rate, a movie about Frankenstein building monsters for the Nazis filmed in a classic newsreel style? I’m in. Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
