Armies of Frankenstein

Two projects, same title.

Pictured above, the stitched-up creatures giving stiff-arm salutes and wearing Nazi-like X-insignia armbands are from Dutch director Richard Raaphorst’s Army of Frankenstein, a reboot of the previously announced but stuck-in-turnaround zombie epic, Worst Case Scenario.

The Gorehound Films site has two trailers for Worst Case Scenario. The first one sets up the story with equal measures of humor and creepiness, and the second one, more enigmatic, is genuinely chilling.

The distressed war poster, found on Michael May’s Adventureblog, announces the other Army of Frankenstein, a story arc for Crawl Space, the horror comic by Rick Remender and Kieron Dwyer, published by Image.
