Boring Nazi Doctors
Well, I'm convinced now. They made stupid movies back in the old days as well...the Frozen Dead for instance. A very crappy, but especially boring horror movie coming from the 60's. Widely considered as the golden decade for horror, and I surely agree with that, but then we have to ignore this picture. There are about 15 good minutes in this movie. The last ones. All the required tension, creepy atmosphere and horror are in this quarter. All the rest is a waste of time, although it could have been something, I think.
About 20 years after World War II ended, a few old-fashioned Nazi officers and scientists are performing experiments on frozen Nazi-leaders. They want to bring them back, of course and they can! Thanks to the work of Dr. Norberg. Too bad (for them, at least) his curious niece (Jean) pops up with a friend of hers. She never knew her uncle and her deceased father were Nazi's so the lab of Dr. Norberg has to be hidden for her. To continue their research, Dr. Norberg and his assistent kill Jean's friend. Jean becomes suspicious. That's pretty normal I guess...they could've killed anybody, but nooooo...Let's kill the friend of the niece. How stupid is that!!! The acting is boring, the action is very limited and there's no feeling at all with the characters. Although I'm glad there wasn't any feeling, actually. After all, the characters were Nazi's. The Frozen Dead is a movie that should be avoided. The synopsis of this film may sound interesting but believe me, further expectations will only lead to huge disappointments.
