I don’t know what the fuck is going on in Uwe Boll’s head, but it’s not OK.
Below is the trailer for Boll’s newest film, Auschwitz. Yes, the man who directed Alone In The Dark and In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale directed a movie about a concentration camp. The trailer is very NSFW, and pretty horrific. I’m warning you right now. If you don’t want to watch it, I don’t blame you. If you’d like the lowlights, well, it’s got naked people trapped screaming and crying in a gas chamber as Boll himself portrays a bored-looking guard standing outside, someone using pliers to pull the teeth out of a corpse, and a child’s body being sent into a crematorium.
It’s terrible subject matter, made all the worse in the ham-fisted hands of a hack director like Boll. He’s been apparently trying to reinvent himself of late, with films like Rampage and Darfur. But he’s still Uwe Boll. He’s still one of the tackiest, least talented directors out there. And he made a Nazi concentration camp movie. And he cast himself as one of the guards.
Watch it, if you must. But please, don’t go see it.
I have no further comment other than “I would like to wake up now.”
