HORRORS OF WAR derives from the "B" movie, Grindhouse tradition, made to play like a like a midnight movie. It is an independently-produced film made in a B-movie style, yet with a dramatic grounding and an eye toward bigger production values.......FILM SYNOPSIS: 'Feeling the pressure from Allied advance, Hitler unleashes his secret weapons giving rise to a type of warfare the world has never seen. Throughout the European theater of WWII, Lieutenant John Schmidt comes face to face with these "weapons." The Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S., precursor to the C.I.A.) initiates missions behind enemy lines to find the source of the weapons terrorizing U.S. soldiers fighting the Third Reich. Schmidt is joined by Captain Joe Russo and his group of war-hardened GIs who have experienced for themselves the all-too-real horrors of war in battle. Together, they must find and destroy Hitler's horde of nightmare weapons before his horrific vision can be fully realized.'Written by

Some of the aircraft in the film are real and others a computer generated. The real planes were filmed in Conneaut, Ohio in September 2004, including a P51 Mustang. See more »

A "directors' cut" that was screened in 12 cities in the U.S. and this differs from the version being released on DVD. The Directors' Cut is the film told in a linear storyline with the D-Day scenes first, not as a flashback. The opening scene from the DVD is played after the end credits in the Directors' Cut.

This was one of the worst movies I ever saw. I was really positive about it when I read the cover of the DVD, and I was aware that this was a low budget movie, and I have quite a lot of sympathy for ambitious movie makers with a restricted budget. Its about improvisation and imagination.
But honestly this movie is real crap. Everything is bad, from the acting, to the attention to the detail, to the special effects and the filming as well.
Some movies are so bad that they are at some point funny, but this was just dull and silly.
Its rare to find a movie that is able to even disappoint low expectations, but that is certainly one of them.
