A Chance in Hell is set in the winter of 1944 in Nazi-occupied Germany. US soldiers stumble upon a secret Nazi facility that has been overrun by creatures that were created in the lab of the nefarious Dr. Bücher. Most Nazi Zombie flicks settle for cheap thrills and humor. Our goal is to utilize the easiest distinction between protagonist and antagonist the world has ever seen and create a gritty, visceral film unlike any other horror period piece. Think Saving Private Ryan meets 30 Days of Night.

"Overall I really liked the look of this movie...the sets were great and very creepy. I also loved the main child zombie (I call her Sweet Pea) and the effects were INCREDIBLE, I screamed out loud when that soldier was ripped in half and loved how fast SP worked on her kill."  - Anon
