Free Movie Friday! Deathwatch (2002)
It's 1917. World War I. At the Western front a group of survivors of the British Y-Company make their way through dense fog during the night and become hopelessly lost in enemy territory. They find a bomb razed German trench that appears to be abandoned and take shelter in its rat infested claustrophobic maze of underground tunnels and blind corners. The lone surviving German soldier they find tries to warn them of something, but his pleas are ignored. Soon a dark force of evil starts to drive the soldiers mad, preying on their fear as they turn against one another in the hellish landscape.
"Deathwatch" is "Saving Private Ryan" meets "Jacobs Ladder;" where war is literally hell on earth. This movie combines the true terror of war with suspenseful psychological horror and has a great cast to boot. "Deathwatch" stars Jamie Bell from "Billy Elliot" and "Jumper" and Andy Serkis who you may recognize as the motion capture actor that performed Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
