It's that time again for a new Top Movie list! And this time its all about the minions of Hitler revisiting the world dead or alive. The holocaust will forever be a scar on the human experience. The guilt and shame of such an undertaking still permeates the air in countries which saw it firsthand, but it seems that since the last few years everything is possible again in movie world and this means full Nazi plots Hitler look a likes and Swastika logos. Here is our take on a top 5 list of Nazi movies:
Dana Andrews stars as Dr. Norberg, a German expert on cryogenics who happens to be trying to resurrect several key Nazis by attaching their severed heads to new bodies. With funding and support from ODESSA, Norberg is on the brink of success. Okay, the film doesn’t really feature any Nazi zombies running around and eating people, but the intent is certainly there (well, at least the “running around” part). A precursor to the Nazisploitation genre, The Frozen Dead is another one recommended for hardcore fans only.
In a fictitious WWII we have a Nazi killing squad and they are out to get the number one guy: Hitler. WWII, is one of the most tragic events in history, but Tarantino some how manages to make it fun. Inglourious Basterds is a fun film, it's tremendously entertaining, shocking, dramatic, suspenseful, and funny at the same time. Jam packed with everything you look for in a movie, done with that certain Tarantino style, it's worth being checked out. It's time to experience for yourself what war is like through the eyes of Quentin Tarantino.
According to the DVD box, "SS zombies rise from the depths of the ocean to wreak havoc amongst the living!" Rose (Brooke Adams) and her pals are enjoying a yachting excursion when they suddenly hit a freighter and wind up stranded on an island. There, they meet an SS commander (an over-the-top Peter Cushing) who’s been passing the time since WWII by caring for a bunch of Nazi zombies. As you might expect, things don’t well for Rose and the gang once the goggle-wearing undead rise from the water in slow motion.
During Easter vacation, a group of students head into the mountains of Norway for a little fun in the snow. Guess who doesn't like having fun? That's right, SS zombies with an obsession for hidden gold. Back from the dead to reclaim their treasure, the undead Germans engage in a gory struggle with the never-say-die protagonists. Mixing comedy with horror, Dead Snow features some surprises not normally seen in the genre, plus there are some lovely Norwegian gals in it. The SS Nazi leader, Standartenfuhrer Herzog (Orjan Gamst) looks especially cool.
In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers. This is a great example for how movies should be done. Nice over the top action and campy humor! Maybe not the most gruesome movie on the list but certainly one that would make you laugh the most.

Toward the end of World War II, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Victor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein's work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades -- a desperate Hitler's last ghastly ploy to escape defeat. This is one of the rare movies where creature design is done perfectly and Dutch director Richard Raaphorst can finally show off his talent.Click here for our review of Frankenstein's Army
Of course there are way more movies about Nazi's some that I would like to mention are: Outpost 1 and 2, Manborg, Zombie Lake, and the Keep. As times are changing so will the mindset about WWII but let me just say this: Everything what happened in WWII is and shall always be one of the worst parts of history! Make no mistake we at SlashingThrough.com love movies also with Nazi's in them this doesn't mean we approve what happened back in the day.
Before The Conjuring there was...
There is no justice without sin
When things get bad, they'll do their worst.
Neder horror is coming
One last chance for peace.
Where did the purge leave us?
First they send in their drone... then they find their queen
Welcome back King of Monsters
Hell Hath All Fury
We do not have the future under control.
