I don't remember a video game called Auschwitz.

The shark jump 3D version is long overdue.

I have to admit I found the trailer genuinely shocking and horrifying. Which is how a movie about Auschwitz should be isn't it? If it weren't being made by someone who seems to aspire (and fail) to be a modern William Castle I probably wouldn't be suspicious and might even be impressed. Still Boll's comments about the film, defensive hubris aside, intrigue me. Who knows, maybe this might turn out to be his first truly worthwhile project? The guy who made Stop or My Mom Will Shoot, Air America and Turner and Hooch (Roger Spottiswoode) has also made some pretty solid "issue" films.

It's fair enough having shocking scenes in a film about auswitz, but you don't put them in the trailer, with your name plastered all over it. It smacks of exploitation. The most shocking film i've seen about the subject - the grey zone, doesn't treat the attoricties as some sensational evil, but as an unbelievably casual part of daily life, which I have to say hit me like a sledgehammer. This feels more like a Torture porn film set in auswitz, complete with the cremation of one singular prosphetic baby which is just ridiculous.
