This is a bit of a different take on the whole zombie thing, and a fairly good one too. It's about boat of Nazi soldiers from the WW2 who are now zombies revived for fighting purposes. Only problem is they are shipwrecked on an Island. Of course a boat full of victims shows up and people start dying. The cool thing is the zombies are definitely only for attacking so they are rather creepy coming out of the water and well they go on land too of course, they are sort of a clinical seeming zombie but that makes it scarier I think. It's not a perfect film but it does have some blood and some definite creepy moments, they did quite well for a lesser known horror film!
