I mean, I guess Zombie Nazis will always be in style..rumor is this is tied to Cloverfield in some weird way. JJ Abrams producing.

"Inspired by a late night playing call of duties zombie mode"

i was disappointed that the black guy walked towards all the weird sounds behind a wall, usually in a scary movie he is the guy who will make the most sense and say "RUN BITCHES RUN"

at least its better than battlefield 5

Its my understanding that this is not tied to the Cloverfield "universe", but rumor has been that it was since it was announced. Bad Robot are currently working on the next Cloververse movie, though.

Yea I heard that as well. The similarity between the The Cloverfield Paradox image and Overlord jumped out at me though.

Is this nazi zombie movie historically accurate? Were there black american soldiers serving 1 off in a standard infantry platoon? I thought they had segregation in WWII?

Clearly you send the diversity hire on a suicide mission to investigate what the Nazis may be up to in their secret lab.

i'll allow it.

At this point isn't the "Cloververse" just (mostly) mediocre movies that Bad Robot buys, slightly rebrands, and sells?

So this is out :p I only came across it because I was listening to a morning radio show and they talked about it. Then I watched the trailer and wondered if the EA devs on BF5 got a copy of the script before movie production.

Any good?

There is no reason to see this in theater versus at home in a few months.

I liked it, but it is definitely wouldn't be considered good by most people.

Airplane scene at beginning is awesome.

I honestly feel like a lot of the plot is a ripoff of 30 Days of Night or something close to that being mimicked.

Thanks Monster Hunter. You were a true movie hunter and took one for the team. Back I go to Netflix's Maniac. (Really good)

Man I am trying to think of a reason to tell you to see it, but I can't. I LOVE jj abrams i kove cloverfield lost etc all his stuff, this wasn't well done in a lot of areas.

Euron Greyjoy as the villain was good, the cast minus Kurt Russells son kinda really sucked.

The opening scene I really liked and the buff dave chappelle clone general from "the big hit" was his usual awesome self.

The explanation needed to be deeper and for fuck sake the more I type this the more I can literally see where they were gonna cloverfield it up and backed off.
