A blood-soaked blitzkrieg of mayhem and terror
Soldiers of the Damned, a psychological horror/thriller, is set on the Eastern Front, during World War 2, as the Russians push the German Army back through Romania. Major Kurt Fleischer, war-weary commander of an elite troop of German soldiers, is ordered to escort a female scientist into a mysterious forest behind enemy lines to retrieve an ancient relic. As his men begin to disappear in strange circumstances, Fleischer realises that the scientist is part of Himmler’s occult department and there is something in the forest that is far more deadly than the Russians.
Soldiers of the Damned was partly financed and is being sold internationally by US producer and Sales Agent, Vantage Media International.
