'Frankenstein's Army' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Aug 12, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The Official Selection at the Tribeca Film Festival will arise on Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, MPI will be releasing 'Frankenstein's Army' on Blu-ray on September 10.

In the dying days of World War II, a battalion of Russian soldiers find themselves lost in enemy territory in eastern Germany. One soldier (Alexander Mercury, 'The Golden Compass') has been ordered to make a propaganda film as the squadron makes its way across the wintry landscape, and what follows is a thrilling mix of found-footage shocks and classic horror. Stumbling upon a village decimated by an unseen terror, the Russians are lured into the secret lab of deranged scientist Viktor ('Hellboy's Karel Roden). Viktor has unearthed the journals of the legendary Dr. Victor Frankenstein and has used them to assemble an army of supersoldiers stitched together from the body parts of fallen Germans - a desperate Hitler's last ghastly ploy to escape defeat. Leaderless and faced with dissension in their dwindling ranks, the Russians must find the courage to face down this fearsome new brigade of flesh-and-metal "zombots," or die trying.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Making-Of Featurette: Revealing all facets of the filmmaking process, this 31 minute featurette uncovers everything from Richard Raaphorst's creature designs, to the film's pre-production process, to the actual creature creation by the Unreal FX team; Interviews: Director Richard Raaphorst, Cinematographer Bart Beekman, Production Designer Jinrich Koci, Unreal FX Team, The Frankestein's Army Actors; and Five Creature Spots.
