Operation: Nazi Zombies (2003)

When I was searching for something to watch the other day while being laid up with some type of stomach virus, I decided to check out some more of that great Nazi Zombie subgenre. My selection for the day (at least the first one) was from 2003 Operation: Nazi Zombies.

Plot/ A team of Army Special Forces is sent into a secluded, secret biological weapons facility, only to fall prey to the specimens of a Nazi experiment that was recreated by the Army Chemical Corps and the CIA after World War II.

This flick, originally released in 2003 under the title Maplewoods, is a decent score for Brain Damage Films. While it is not a perfect film and suffers the same fate as many no-budget indie flicks, what it accomplished on a limited budget (especially considering its age) is not bad. Yes, the acting is uneven, the plot nonexistent, and some of the locations do not fit, but that is a problem in many zombie flicks.  This one does have some decent zombies and enough gore to keep it interesting, In the end, it is not the best zombie movie out there, but it is far from the worst. If you like Nazi zombie flicks, give it a try, you could do a lot worse (check out my review of Nazis at the Center of the Earth).
