We've had Dawn of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, even Dance of the Dead, but now it's time for War of the Dead. The film, which has been renamed to Stone's War, features just that - Nazi zombies fighting in World War II. Set in Finland in 1940, the story follows Captain Stone and his platoon as they encounter the deadliest (pun intended) WWII enemies ever to go undiscovered. You can check out the very rough dialogue-less trailer below. I hope you enjoy - it actually looks pretty damn good, lots of great fighting - at least that's my initial impression…
Watch the trailer for Stone's War:
In the frozen arctic forests, Captain Martin Stone is leading a finely-trained, elite platoon of American and Finnish soldiers as they attack an enemy bunker. Underestimating the enemy's strength, they are quickly beaten back into the forest. As they try to regroup, they are suddenly attacked by the same soldiers they had just killed a few minutes earlier. Forced to flee deeper into Russian territory, they discover one of the most terrifying secrets of World War II and realize they have woken a far more deadly enemy. Death is no longer the final frontier.
Stone's War is both written and directed by Finnish filmmaker Marko Mäkilaakso, who is directing his first feature film after helming a number of Finnish TV shows. The film doesn't have a release date set but is being distributed by Little Film Company in the US in 2008. Apparently Stone's War might debut at Cannes, but no further release information is currently known.
