Nazi zombies are a popular antagonist in video games and play a supporting role in Overlord, which combines a men-on-a-mission World War II adventure with gruesome body horror and a whiff of Wolfenstein.
In a knockout opening sequence that plays like an aerial version of Saving Private Ryan‘s beach assault, a squad of American paratroopers drops into Nazi-occupied France to destroy a radio transmitter that sits atop a fortified church, which also hides a sinister laboratory designed to forge a thousand-year Reich.
A B-movie with A-grade production values, Australian director Julius Avery skilfully blends war film tropes with Re-Animator, and the result is a rip-roaring genre hybrid that looks fantastic and has loads of fun with its outrageous premise.
