Overlord

Over-the-top action horror follows US soldiers on a mission behind enemy lines who discover a Nazi lab full of unholy experiments.

On the eve of D-Day, American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion's success. But as they approach their target, they begin to realise there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation. They find themselves fighting against mysterious, powerful forces - part of a Nazi experiment. At one point reported to be an entry in the Cloverfield universe, producer J.J. Abrams announced its separation from that series in early 2018.

Overlord looks like it should be a derivative, direct-to-DVD stinker, but it pleasantly over-delivers as a charming B-grade triumph. It knows what it is, keeps its sights set on comfortably-within-range targets and nails them well. The Third Reich's flirtation with the occult has made for countless schlocky pop culture releases over the decades, most of them very average. This one probably isn't going to win any awards, but it more than deserves the cult following it will surely develop.

Zombies! Nazis! Nazi zombies! The crazy WWII action/horror fest Overlord comes from Australian director Julius Avery. Critic Travis Johnson takes an early peak at the film ahead of its release in December.

"Overlord" works best as a patriotism booster shot - it's "Inglourious Basterds" without a swizzle of irony.

What it lacks in novelty, subtlety or character, it partially makes up in sheer abandon. This is a big, loud, violent, gleefully gory sledgehammer of a film with, crucially, a careful tongue in cheek.

Horror fans should cheer, as will admirers of the ensemble's up-and-coming cast.

Overlord injects a healthy dose of schlock into familiar war-movie tropes to create an entertainingly grungy hybrid, but it never quite kicks into overdrive.

For a movie about Nazi mutants, Overlord admirably has something to say.
