TRAILER: Nazis At the Center of the Earth

The direct-to-video release of Nazis At the Center of the Earth is billed as a horror and thriller, but I spy with my little eye some definite science fictional elements…

Here’s the synopsis:

Researchers in Antarctica are abducted by a team of masked storm troopers. They are dragged deep underground to a hidden continent in the center of the earth. Here Nazi survivors, their bodies a horrifying patchwork of decaying and regenerated flesh, are planning for the revival of the Third Reich.

..and the trailer itself…

  1. If we can just get the C.H.U.D. Nazis from this movie to fight the Lunar Nazis from Iron Sky we might stand a chance.

  2. Sorry to be a bit picky, but there really shouldn’t be an apostrophe in “Nazis” – it is a plural noun, not possessive or a contraction.

    That said, I have very low expectations for this movie.

  3. Not a new idea, by the way: “The Nazi era Thule Society reported much about Tibetan myths of openings into the Earth. There is even a theory that Hitler ordered a research journey for such an opening in Antarctica, based on a speech of Admiral Dönitz in front of a German submarine in 1944, when he claimed “The German submarine fleet is proud of having built an invisible fortification for the Führer, anywhere in the world.” During the Nuremberg Trials, Dönitz spoke of “an invisible fortification, in midst of the eternal ice.”

    I’m a big fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs, including his Pellucidar books, so when I was a kid I collected everything I could that was remotely related, such as hollow earth books, and I somehow got on the mailing list of some modern iteration of the Thule Society (when I realized what they were, I “unsubscribed” in no uncertain terms).

  4. Again the Nazi’s mythology strikes back. Sure they lost the war but have won the future of the entertainment. The Nazi’s paraphernalia has caught the imagination of generation because of all the esoteric stuff involved in it, of which the expedition quoted by Greg L., is only the iceberg’s tip. Let’s face it, no other ideology has struck so deep the creative level of the last 50 years: from «The Man in the High Castle», by P. K. Dick and the «The iron Dream» by Norman Spinrad, till… yes… till movies like this one and the «Iron Sky».

    Maybe it’s its weltanschauung… who knows?
