Warhunt is set in 1945, during World War II. US Major Johnson ( Mickey Rourke ) sends a squad of his best men led by Brewer ( Robert Knepper ) and Walsh ( Jackson Rathbone ) behind enemy lines, deep into the Black Forest. Your secret mission is to find a crashed Allied plane and recover the film reels hidden on board and other sensitive materials essential to defeating the Nazis before the Germans get their hands on them.
At first everything goes according to plan. In the thicket of trees, however, the Americans came across the corpses of Wehrmacht soldiers, horribly mauled and decorated with mysterious symbols, hanging upside down from the branches. Suddenly their compasses also fail, the men lose their bearings and finally have to fight for their lives when they are attacked by a supernatural force. What the hell is going on in here?

And if the scenario described above and the trailer should at least superficially remind you of another title, you probably have the turbulent 2018 theatrical release «Operation: Overlord» with «Game Of Thrones» and «Ghost In The Shell» star Pilou, among others Asbæk as the mean top Nazi in the back of your mind. Our 4-star review from back then suggests that it might be worth watching this film again (or for the first time?) to bridge the gap until «Warhunt» is released here as well:
