Summary: Of all the tales with the name "Frankenstein" in them, this is by far the most twisted of them all. Not just because it has Nazis in it, but also how it has some of the mad doctor's worst creations. Yes, that's a plural. Prepare to see what dieselpunk looks like, and be sure you can run fast when these tortured monsters come looking for you...

History: Near the end of WWII, a distress call has been heard somewhere in Soviet territory. A small band of reconnaissance soldiers have been sent to investigate, but they end up in a strange underground facility full of misshapen metal abominations made from human corpses. As it turns out, this is the work of Viktor Frankenstein, grandson of the original doctor. You see, he used to experiment on animals before Nazis put him in a concentration camp. They forced him to put his knowledge to new use, and since then, Viktor has worked behind their backs on an army of cyborg beings known as Zombots, using his former masters and their families as guinea pigs. And for him, this group is just more folks to go on the operating table.

Notable Kills: A kid is dropped onto Propeller Head, whose namesake tears him in half. He's later converted into a Zombot.

Final Fate: Frankenstein's plan is revealed to be him constructing a combination of German and Russian to make the ultimate compromiser. It's crazy, yes, but it ultimately ends with the group leader being killed by the new hybrid, and the last sane man shooting the doctor and taking his head, sending the Zombots into a blood rage. But alas, an aerial strike destroys every last trace of this horrible area and its occupants' existence.

Powers/Abilities: Propeller Head can deflect bullets with his head. Also, all Zombots will go berserk if Frankenstein is killed.

Weakness: Cutting off their fuel sources, heavy artillery.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-Remember "Bioshock"? Remember how frightening the Big Daddies were, being giant metal abominations? Imagine a whole army like them, only they come in more diverse and downright wrong forms. We have ones with deadly plane equipment for heads, guys with mantis-like blades for arms, psychos who walk on stilts, the list goes on. It's a damn miracle that someone got to destroying them all in one fell swoop. For all we know, Frankenstein's army would have been near-unbeatable on the field.

Trivia: -Originally, this film was "Worst Case Scenario", a gorefest that was basically "Zombie Lake", but on a beach. It was all but abandoned, with only two teasers indicating its existence. Also, some designs made it into this film.

-The Zombot effects, all of them practical, were mainly inspired by John Carpenter's "The Thing".

"Call me Stilts-Man AGAIN..."


Now, YOU got the short end of the stick.
Let there be light...ning.

"DOC?! HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO ATTACK WHEN I HAVE THIS FOR A HEAD?!"

With that, his fetishes turn against him.
You need a therapist. ALL OF YOU.

Freddy Krueger had a weird ancestor.

We are certainly not "honored" guests.
Unless we use fire. AND LOTS OF IT!

"Meep."
