The 25th Reich

Meet your new fear: Time-Traveling Nazis. An band of Australian movie misfits has decided to continue the legacy of Brian Trenchard-Smith and other down under heroes of exploitation by sending Nazis into the future. It’s an idea close to Iron Sky‘s Moon Nazi concept, but the results look far different. And far more low rent. With Asylum-level effects, The 25th Reich from director Stephen Amis made our list of interesting projects out of Berlin, and now the trailer promises not to take itself too seriously. With an SS spider-robot squeaking out “Heil Hitler!” it would be hard to. The movie focuses on an elite squad of US soldiers in the outback given a task by OSS to travel in time and save the future from those spider-robots and their Nazi overlords. It looks aggressively cheesy. But hopefully that’s part of the fun. Check out the trailer for yourself:

There’s a solid chance that you haven’t heard of most of these movies. Yet they exist – out there somewhere as a thorn in the side of movie fans trying to see as much as possible. Nuggets of potential waiting to be picked up from the movie orphanage by a distributor and given a warm home with cup holders in every seat. The European Film Market is fascinating for that reason and for the way people attend it. Tickets this year were around $600, but that’s a reasonable price for companies sending representatives trying to find the next moneymaker for their company or the hot movie to bring to their festival. That means screenings come complete with people on cell phones and unimpressed buyers walking out after ten minutes to hustle next door to see if the other movie playing has any promise to it. It’s a bizarre way to watch movies, but it makes a kind of sense given the massive size of the movie list compared to the tiny amount of time to see everything. There were upwards of 675 movies in the EFM this year, all of them with their own selling points. Here are the 87 most interesting-sounding with descriptions found in the official catalog. For the most part, I haven’t seen these movies (and didn’t even know about many of them until the Berlin Film Festival), but they all have something going for them that should earn them a spot on your radar.
