Thoughts on Death Trench

Death Trench is one of the horror sci-fi films that looks to expose one of the many rumoured experiments the Germans tried during the wars. This one, like most of the rest all going wrong with a new level of horror about what they were thinking about doing.

This will unfold in a pace you wouldn’t expect, with plenty of twists along the way. The idea of what is being created would be terrifying. Which will leave the soldiers needing to do the right thing. The horror side of the effects work very well. The gunfire becomes the weaker side of things. In what is another addition into the German experimentation. This is a welcome addition that is well worth watching for the horrors of the minds.
