Ghosts of War

Horror, War
Available on VOD: 10 december 2020
Director: Eric Bress
Cast: Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean Salazar's Revenge), Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarchy, Luke Cage), Kyle Gallner (American Sniper, Jennifer's Body)

Five American soldiers assigned to hold a French Chateau near the end of World War II. This unexpected respite quickly descends into madness when they encounter a supernatural enemy more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield.

Reviews
  • Variety.com: This is the rare horror exercise you wish were longer.
  • RogerEbert.com: One of Bress' greatest strokes comes with casting - he's collected five faces you might recognize from younger, more innocent roles, and who are compelling to see here as men who have matured rapidly due to the wartime experiences eating away at them.
  • Variety.com: Beautifully atmospheric, handsomely produced.
  • Culturecrypt.com: Ghosts of War may look like a haunted house yarn dripping with déjà vu from the outside.  Inside, there’s so much more that makes the movie impressively entertaining. 8/10.
  • Ukfilmreview.co.uk: Explores the madness that weighs on men who’ve done the unthinkable by trapping them in a situation where they must face their demons. Kyle Gallner delivers an appropriately haunted performance as one of the soldiers.
  • Thefilmstage.com: Gallner is especially memorable). It’s through these actors that we see how their characters process their pain above and below the façade created and understand why they’re incapable of looking beyond their tragic wealth of regret.

It's 1942, and France is under Nazi control. The Allies have been pushed off the continent, and their defeat in North Africa seems likely. The nazi's victory is nearly absolute. Deep within this heinous shadow, a man names Jacques uses a radio to broadcast a message of hope. Unbeknownst to him, the formidable Gestapo Hauptmann, Klaus Jager, has been dispatched to catch the illegal broadcast. As Klaus closes in, Jacques, his daughter Juliet, a small group of other dissidents, must learn to trust the kindness of a stranger if they are to stay ahead of their pursuer. And in the end, that trust may turn out to be the very thing that leads the hunter to his prey.

In the midst of the great war, Colonel "Hellfire Jack" Norton-Griffiths hatches a daring plan to break the deadly stalemate at the battle of messines.
He recruits a group of local miners to dig a tunnel underneath no man's land, from the allied trenches to the german trenches, in hopes of successfully setting off bombs from below the german line and saving the allied war effort.

Reviews
  • Filmstories.co.uk: As visually compelling as it is impressive in its character work. Hazeldine’s stoic performance is the highlight, but this is a very strong piece across the board which does not deserve to fly under the radar. A quality World War I movie.
  • Moviesteve.com: Fascinating and true story.
  • Nerdly.co.uk: A tense, personal edge of your seat story of incredible bravery in times of horror. 5/5 stars.
  • Outtakemag.co.uk: An admirable job of telling this fascinating tale.
  • TheGuardian.com: Real-life account of miners recruited in the first world war to burrow beneath German lines is fascinating.
  • Thetimes.co.uk: A fascinating Great War side story and a gritty central turn from Sam Hazeldine (Peaky Blinders)
  • Ukfilmreview.co.uk: Great performances and a strong emotional connection to their social and physical plight.
