Anyone who follows video games and movies knows the name Uwe Boll. They know that this is a director who destroys movies, and has forever tarnished the video game turned movie genre. With such disasters as Alone in the Dark, Postal, and House of the Dead many associate him with bad movie making. His latest will raise more questions on why he is and was allowed to make a movie depicting the worst of mankind.
A trailer hit the web for his latest endevour entitled Auschwitz and believe me when I saw this is NSFW. The trailer is graphic, and disturbing as you would expect from a place as dark and grisly as Auschwitz during World War II. Boll was quoted as saying βItβs in the tradition of my movies Stoic, Darfur, Rampage, Tunnelrats, Heart of Americaβ¦it shows Auschwitz as this what it was: a meatplant for humansβ¦a death factory.β If your not sure what Boll is talking about it’s in reference to his earlier film work which has mostly gone unseen.
Judged on it’s own the trailer looks frightening but with Boll’s name attached many are wondering how the final product will turn out. How would Uwe Boll choose to represent the worst in humanity? What do you all think. Will this movie handle the very difficult subject the Holocaust nicely or rather bluntly?
