During the early hours of June 6th 1944 a bloody but victorious offensive took place in occupied Western Europe that would claim thousands of lives. Codenamed 'Operation Overlord' the armies of the combined allied forces would begin their long push to Berlin, with the aim of bringing down the despised Nazi regime.

But the chilling realities of Hitler's true intentions are exposed, to create a force that can never be beaten, a 4th Reich - The New World Order. A team of Nazi doctors and scientists were charged with generating a superior race. Their experiments and research would produce unspeakable evil and change the face of humanity forever.

A small select brigade of soldiers from the British 3rd Infantry Division, under the command of the battle hardened Captain Bathurst embark on a dangerous quest to liberate Europe. Fighting their way through the French countryside, villages and war ravaged towns. Every advance they discover increasingly strange events until they reach an abandoned research facility where the true horrors begin.

  • Writer/director Shaun Robert Smith gave fans an update on this project via his official site, saying: "The script titled - 'THE 4TH REICH' has been through many changes and has been passed through many production companies over the years. As a result, an old addage comes into play "too many cooks spoil the broth". I am now in a position where I can strip back the script and take it back to the premise that attracted everyone in the first place, sometimes this is the key to a successful movie, taking it back to basics." Adding... "I want to assure everyone that 'THE 4TH REICH' is on the horizon, what I have learned from you over the years is that we have a dedicated and loyal fanbase, most of you have been patient and understand that it's tough out there, but independent filmmaking is breaking through, we're in a much better position than we were in 2008. Those of you that haven't been patient have shown me just how much our followers are passionate about this project." No word if any of the original cast is still attached, but it seems unlikely.

In spite of the countless number of bodies strewn along the bloody beaches the manoeuvre is hailed a success in the Allied efforts to liberate France.However there is no respite for war weary Corporal Roberts and Sergeant Major Gordon as they are assigned on a covert mission progressing deeper into occupied France.
  • Led by the battle hardened Captain Bathurst, the small select infantry are tasked with a mission to take over from where a previous operation failed - to eliminate the notorious Oberleutnant Dirlewanger and destroy the secret research facility he and his SS division are guarding with their lives. With the mission's details being on a need to know basis, rumours amongst the infantry circulate about the Nazi's occultish experiments.
  • As they advance through war ravaged towns seeing off the last faithful members of Nazi resistance, Roberts discovers that the rumours may not be as far fetched as he believed. Finding the macabre corpses of the first operation, the disturbing reality that they were not simply the victims of battle begins to sink in.
  • Their suspicions prove justified as they explore the deserted research facility revealing the truly horrific implications of the Nazi experiments and discovering their successful trials to regenerate an indestructible 4th Reich from Dirlewanger's SS dead division. The soldiers are now faced with an undead evil for which even the extreme nightmares of war could not have prepared them.
