In 1936, the Wollners - a German family living in rural Morgan County, West Virginia - are contacted by the Third Reich to host a visiting scholar, Professor Richard Wirth. In need of money, they accept Wirth into their home. Wirth's grand occult project seals the Wollners off from the rest of the world and makes them players in a horrifying game of survival. After 71 years, in 2007, Evan Marshall's life has stalled at twenty-five years old. Left without answers after his older brother Victor's disappearance from a camping trip near Town Creek, he has tried to move on.

The check in the beginning from the "Deutsche Bundesbank":

In the early '30s, Adolf Hitler and his inner circle became obsessed with the occult, believing that the black arts were key to their plan for world domination. Nazi agents travelled the globe in search of ancient Nordic relics known as rune stones. They believed if they harnessed the power of these stones, nothing could stop the march of the Master Race. The symbols inscribed in these stones were said to describe the path... to immortality.

I give a big applause to Joel Schumacher, the director. He's 70 years old when he directed this, imagine that. Joel is known for a few blockbusters like Batman and Robin and Batman Forever or even for 8mm. This supernatural tale was for me a big surprise on the blood content. I didn't really knew this flick but I've seen some of his efforts and really, this I would put into the horror label (with a supernatural twist of course). You could say that it could be compared with Jeepers Creepers (the way the killer acted, I mean). But I was a bit disappointed on the fact that it never was really scary or even frightening. Again, if you haven't seen creeps with white eyes than you surely will be frightened but I think people who will watch this are into the horror genre. But it's the use of gore and the special effects that really up-scaled my vote. The decapitation, the hitting with some kind of crowbar is really well done. CGI is used but in a very good way. It doesn't distract you from the screen. The acting was believable, let's face it, Fassbender is the biggest name and casted as a German nazi, great because he's German and does well on the accent. I had this DVD a lot of time in my hands at the shops and a few times I put it back on the shelves, but I'm glad that I picked it up again recently...
