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.

It's a War Movie, No Wait, It's Monsters

The movie starts off like a typical war movie. Young lads, testerone, bravado. It soon becomes apparent that there's something weird going on in the little French village. There's a pretty French damsel of course, and a cute kid, plus a motley gang of soldiers who make it to the village. There's a lot of fast moving action. Many tense moments. Scenes...

Those nasty Nazi's are at it again.

This film will keep you riveted from the first frame to its last. Set in WWII in France as it follows a group of surviving paratroopers on a mission that quickly becomes a whole lot more horrifying. It's loud, in your face action, gory but really quite a little gem of a horror film. Its kinda schlocky but it embraces this and practically revels in its...

Gory, Intense and oh so much fun!

Looking for a relaxing, soothing flick? Then maybe choose another film. If instead you're keen to spend two hours on the edge of your seat watching WW2 soldiers fight it out against some of the scariest zombies I've seen in awhile then I can't recommend Overlord enough.

Check your brain at the door for a genre mixing fun fest of war and gore

Two of my favourite genres mixed together? What more could I ask for. Think a mix of Inglorious Basterds and Zombieland and you're part way there. Lots of giggles and laughs through the film will tell you that historical accuracy and plot have been left behind for action filled fun and gore. But it really was a rollercoaster of fun. Loved it.

A fast-paced, fun WW2 action-horror

*(WARNING: Review may contain SPOILERS!)* Julius Avery’s ‘Overlord’ gets the special effects right, combining make-up, practical and CGI just right. Sadly all in service of a film neither funny enough to be splat-stick, nor terrifying enough to be gore-drenched horror. I’m a splat-stick fan. Sam Raimi’s ‘Evil Dead 2’ and Peter Jackson’s ‘Braindead’ are...

Holy moly, that was intense.

Saving Private Ryan with The Human Centipede. Something a lot iike World War Z, is what you get. Take out Brad Pitt, throw in some tokenistic attempts to convey occupied France, add Nazis, and this is the result. What does it...

"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.
