The Soldier (Nazi Zombie Short)

One of the films I'm keeping a quiet eye on is the upcoming 3D Nazi zombie flick The 4th Reich from director Shaun Robert Smith.

Concept art for The 4th Reich was released earlier this week from Britfilms.tv, and if IMDB can be believed shooting is due to start in April 2010.

Until the film is released, you can get your Nazi zombie fix by watch Smith's short film The Soldier (2007). Described as a cross between Saving Private Ryan and 28 Days Later, the short film is on Youtube (embedding disabled, unfortunately) and you can watch it at the following link:

The 4th Reich will be a feature-length version of the short. Stylistically, the short shows promise for the feature.
