A group of American GIs battle Nazi-Zombies during WW2 in Julius Avery's OVERLORD , which is out now on UK Disc from Paramount Pictures.
Set against the backdrop of the Second World War, a group of American Paratroopers are flying in to occupied France to knock out a Nazi radio transmitter ahead of the D-Day landings in Normandy.
Unfortunately for them, they discover the SS outpost there is more than just a communications centre, and the doctors have been performing strange genetic experiments on the locals, hoping to create the ultimate nazi-supersoldiers.
Aided by one of the sympathetic locals, they aim to knock out the base, and take down the transmitter. If only they can work out a way of killing the nazi-zombies within, which presents them with the real challenge.
Starring Jovan Adepo (TV's The Leftovers, Jack Ryan), Overlord is fantastically gory, and packed full of action, which plays as a sort-of cross between "Band of Brothers" and "Re-Animator" and was one of my favourite films from 2018. It has everything a good horror film should have, action, violence, blood, gore and nazi-zombies, so what's not to love?
