As co-directed by neophytes Peter John Ross and John Whitney, the low-budget opus Horrors of War represents an ambitious attempt to meld into a cohesive whole two distinct and seldom cross-pollinated genres: gore-filled horror and the WWII-era war picture. The action circulates around a diabolical plot by Hitler's minions to manufacture grotesque, oversized canine mutants - lycanthrope-like creatures immune to bullets and capable of taking out an entire military battalion with a single attack. Hitler realizes this insane plan via one of the physicians responsible for engineering Nazi medical experiments: the psychotic Dr. Heinrich Schaltur. A military man, Lieutenant John Schmidt, has the misfortune of stumbling onto one of these creatures unaware; he barely manages to escape with his life, then subsequently decides to team up with Captain Joe Russo to find Dr. Schaltur and put a stop to the plot before it can fully gestate.
