On the outskirts of Overlord, soldiers led by Jovan Adepo Boy are experiencing real horror – the horror of wars. As this team collapses over the territory of the enemy during World War II, they find that their plane takes fire before they have the ultimate choice of getting off the parachute as their fiery craft is fascinated by the land.
Even though the film later comes to the traditional horror area with horrendous creatures that attack survivors, this sequence smoothes out the tension and sets the mood for the rest of the movie.
See the opening scene below:
Overlord was directed by Julius Avery, who was used to direct the 20th Century Fox's "reboot" to Flash Gordon. Overlord gets raves from horror purists. Despite the relatively low budget, it provides fear and gore. As one reviewer called: "It's a big, noisy, violent, gleefully gory movie sledgehammer, which, decisively, attentive tongue with a ghost" (Demetrios Matheou, Screen Daily) The film was executive produced by J.J. Abrams
The film's description is as follows:
American squadrons fell behind the enemy lines to enter the walls of the fortified church and destroy the radio transmitter. When the soldiers are approaching their goal, they soon begin to realize that more than a mere military operation takes place in the Nazi occupied village. On the way to the underground laboratory, too many men stumble upon a violent experiment that paves the way for them in a vicious battle against the army of the undead.
The lot consists of many top-and-comers. Adepo was featured in the Facebook Watch series "Sorry for your loss," along with Elizabeth Olsen and Kelly Marie Tran. He will also be the star of Ave DuVernay's Netflix miniseries "Central Park Five" based on a true story that will be released in 2019. He will also join the Amazon's Jack Ryan series next year.
His Costar Wyatt Russell star in the AMC series "Lodge 49", which has been restored in the second season and will appear next year, "The Woman in the Window" with Amy Adams and Gary Oldman. Another star, Pilou Asbæk, featured Euron Greyjoy as the "Throne Game", and will be featured in another military project film "Project X-traction" starring Jackie Chan and John Cena.
Overlord will be available for fear of you in just a few days, arriving at theaters on November 9th.
