War of the Dead

Synopsis: This is a movie set during WWII and involves Captain Stone and a platoon of American and Finnish soldiers on a mission to find a bunker held by the Germans. On the way there they come under fire and at the same time run in to some German soldiers that seem to be "undead". How is this possible? Their platoon is almost completely killed off apart from a few of them, including Capt. Stone. They move on and run in to another survivor, a Russian soldier. They all try to survive and end up at the bunker they were meant to take out. But once inside they find out just how the German soldiers became the "undead".

I saw smoke

from your chimney and, well...

- I would love to light one of these.

- Of course, young man.

May I ask, why haven't you left? There's

a war going on right outside your door.

This is my home. My life's work is here.

Why should I leave?

Thank you.

- Fucker!

- I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Remember to do that to Russians. Fucker.

Thank you for your hospitality.

I'm really sorry about this.

I'm sure you are.


Hey, Halonen.

It's too quiet here, right?

Does it trouble you, Captain?


Move out.

Come on, Jackson.

Let's move out of here.

Film, goddammit.

Whose brilliant idea was it

to bring him along?

Mine. He's doing

a very important job here, Captain Stone.

Documenting our struggle

against the Russian invaders.

- You should know that.

- Yes, of course, sir.

Well, I think we're pretty close now.

The Soviet bunker should be no more

than one or two kilometres from here.

I don't see any point in moving

any further before nightfall.

You are right, Stone.

- Something wrong, Captain?

- No, nothing.

Sir, is there something

you're not telling me

regarding this mission?

Don't worry, Stone.

It'll all be over by dawn.

- Laakso.

- Yes, sir.

The map, Captain.

The Soviet bunker is

about two kilometres due west of here.

We attack before dawn. Inform the men.

They'll be ready, sir.

You do the same.

Gentlemen, we attack before dawn.

Everybody take cover!

Selzman, get the f*ck down!

What the hell are you doing?

- Get back!

- Laakso, what the hell are you doing?

Everybody get back!

The lieutenant's right!

We can't hold this position!

All right! Move back!

- Captain, we must inform headquarters.

- Not yet.

We've lost more than half the unit.

It's over.

We are not turning back.

We got this far.

The enemy will attack again. Then what?

I will not be humiliated.

- What's going on?

- We are not going back.

We don't have enough men, Captain.

- Can you fire a gun, Selzman?

- Yeah.

I killed a man,

in the Spanish Civil War.

You may have to do that again.

Well, this is a war too.

- What the hell was that?

- Field glasses.

Captain, here.

- What's going on?

- I don't know.

Are you sure this was the only attack

planned for here?

Yes, I'm sure.

This country's got

some serious problems.

You got that goddamn right.

Niemi, we need to talk.

Someone's coming.

Wait. He stopped.

Did we leave someone behind?


Give me the camera.

Give me the goddamn camera!

Selzman, shut the f*ck up.

- Something's not right.

- What?

- I think that's a Russian.

- He might be one of us.

It's... it's a trick, sir.

Sir, on your order, sir.


- Niemi?

- Sir.


Open fire!

Laakso, go take a look.

Yes, sir.

Jesus. Halonen.

He's alive.


Laakso, incoming!

Fucking fantastic.

Get out of here! Get out of here!

Go, go, go, go! Run!

Come on, let's get out of here.





Drop your weapon!

Drop it! Drop your weapon!

- Shoot him!

- Don't shoot, please.

- That's an order, Captain!

- No, Captain, please don't shoot!

- Side arm.

- OK.

He's a fucking Russian.

Captain Stone.

- Kill him!

- No. I can help, please.

I'll get you court-martialled

if you don't shoot.

No, hold on, hold on, hold on.

- Help us how? What do you mean?

- I can show you house.

A house? What the hell

would we do with a house?

He's right.

We have to get out of here, Captain.

No, we stay and fight.

We take cover, yes?

Follow me, please.

Let's go.

Come on, come on, come on.

We must hurry.

Those things will be following us for sure.

Come on.

This is it.
