Overlord

OVERLORD

World War II action horror produced by JJ Abrams, directed by Julius Avery and starring Jovan Adepo. A unit of American soldiers who parachute into Nazi-occupied France are dropped into scenes of unimaginable horror.

When a US airborne unit’s plane is shot down, a group of soldiers, including Boyce (Adepo) and Ford (Wyatt Russell), are left off target as they attempt to complete their mission to disable a radio jammer on top of a church. But when they come across a strange-looking corpse of what could be a dog in the woods, it’s the first hint that something strange is going on in the area. It then falls to a local, Chloe (Mathilde Ollivier), to lead the soldiers into the village and harbour them at her home while they work out how to get to the church, which is heavily fortified. Question is, why is it so heavily fortified? And what does it mean that people are being sent to the church to get ‘fixed’? Can’t be good, can it?

Also featuring Pilou Asbæk (Borgen/Game of Thrones) as a particularly creepy German officer who our heroes end up having to take hostage.
