    Ok, that trailer has me sold - looks like they're doing some grassroots funding for it for a 4/12 launch? I wonder how far along they are. It's a great premise.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    That looks awesome. As does Frankenstein's Army.

    Nazi's are hot this year. The Frankenstein's Army trailer is neat. I saw it the other day.

    I read a good Charles Stross' book about those pesky Nazis living on the dark side of the moon, too...

    Reading through the website it says that they have finished shooting and are in post-production. They scored 6.3M Euros through normal funding (and hey, Australia's a co-financier in that project! Screen Queensland invested in it), and the "crowd-funding" idea is to cover 900K of the budget. I must admit, it looks pretty out there.

    That trailer is disturbing as all fuck. Simply because it's been produced to look like genuine WWII footage. Thereby, for me, it works...

    And hopefully, because genre filmmakers have elected to use Nazis and Nazi iconography as key motifs of their works, that doesn't bring out a phalanx of white supremacists, Holocaust deniers and general other lowlifes who seem to love riding on the back of this stuff. And Lord knows, the internet's full of fuckwits who love stirring the pot with this stuff.

    Yeah, they did do a really nice job except... wrong aspect ratio! ;p I'm pretty stoked to check this one out as well.

    Two fun Lovecraft influenced WWII nazi shorts are Experiment 17 and Experiment 18. They can be found on the HP Lovecraft Collection Vol 2 from Lurker Films.

    According to Twitch, this thing is almost done post-production. You can dig a few promotional images here.

    Looks pretty good. This is from the guy who made the Worst Case Scenario trailers, so we can hope his project will be made this time.
