The Devil's Rock

Described as "Saw with Swastikas" by horror site Shocktillyoudrop, this New Zealand made World War II horror movie follows two Kiwi commandos (Craig Hall and Karlos Drinkwater) in Normandy who discover a Nazi plot to unleash demonic forces. Special effects handled by Weta Workshop.

On mission on the eve of D-Day, the pair are separated and Captain Ben Grogan (Hall) discovers a hidden bunker. Once inside he encounters more than he bargained for: a scene of carnage where only a mysterious Nazi (Matthew Sunderland, Out of the Blue) and a beutiful, devilish captive (Gina Varela, Xena) remain alive.

This is Brit-Kiwi director Paul Campion's feature debut, having previously worked in visual effects for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Sin City, Clash of the Titans and others.

Winner Best Makeup Design at the NZ Film Awards 2012.

The action unfolds inside the gloomy lair in an attempt to deliver claustrophobic intensity...

A silly/creepy chamber piece that throws around intestines like sausages in a Punch And Judy show.

By keeping the action confined to the tunnels and cells of the blockhouse, Campion creates a claustrophobic setting...

The languid pace undermines attempts at suspense.
