World War II themed horror movies

After recently watching "Inglorious Bastards", my interest in all things WWII has been rekindled. Some WWII "horror" films that come to mind are: "the Keep", "Apt Pupil", "Boys from Brazil".

Whats your favorite WWII horror film, or one that you would recommend?


(damn Nazis! )

THE MYSTERIOUS DOCTOR (1943), which is about as clumsy an attempt to mix horror and wartime propaganda as you'll ever see, but it's got some great creepy atmosphere nonetheless.

You should check out The Outpost and also Shock Waves.
I don't know if you are a big reader, but you should check out Wolf's Hour by Robert McCammon...a WWII set American Werewolf Vs. Nazi thriller that is a great read...also this could be the place where Tarantino got the inspiration for the double agent German Actress character in Basterds.

I thought The Bunker was pretty good. Would Blood Creek count? I enjoyed that as well.

Letting you know that part of this film takes place during WWII is a bit of a spoiler, so...

Spoiler:
Deadwood Park


And also, Below - which is one of my favorite WWII haunted submarine movies.

I love Shockwaves. There were plenty of living-dead-Nazi movies back in the late 70s and early 80s. Some recent World War period flicks that come to mind include The Bunker, Below, and Deathwatch (technically, WWI). And I'm still waiting for Death Ship (1980) to get a DVD release.

Anyone see "Dead Snow"? Is it worth renting?

I actually liked "Dead Snow" quite a bit, if you can tolerate looped over dialogue. I should've mentioned that one in my list.

There's that sublime TALES FROM THE CRYPT episode, "Yellow", I think from the second or third season. The one directed by Robert Zemeckis. I've got a review for it here somewhere.

While it's not a war movie, much of THE PROWLER revolves around WWII and how a man who was dumped while at war comes back to reap his rightful revenge!
