Richard Raaphorst’s WWII-based dieselpunk horror movie, Frankenstein's Army, is running on blood, sweat, and more blood these days. Just released by Dark Sky Films, we have our first two glimpses into the evil minds behind this undead nightmare.
The first still features “Propellerhead”, a hulking Nazi automaton that uses its spinning rotors to slice a bloody swath through the film’s terrified, lost Russian battalion.
The second grisly official still features the power-hungry Doctor Frankenstein (Hellboy’s Karel Roden) himself, as he dissects an unwilling subject!
Frankenstein’s Army’ takes place toward the end of World War II, as Russian soldiers push into eastern Germany and stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Viktor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein’s work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades – a desperate Hitler’s last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.
