1915. The Western Front. One million or more Allied and German troops face each other across the scarred, cratered plains of northern Europe, thick with mud and blood, the air fetid with the suffocating stench of death and gas. Hundreds of thousands of young men are already buried in this terrible wasteland; hundreds of thousands more will die here before the senseless slaughter ends.

It is here that one young man, only 16, much like you or I, must face his deepest fear, that he will die a coward. Private Charles Shakespeare is convulsed with terror. Death is all about him, the bodies of his closest comrades carelessly shredded by machine-gun fire. He and the last few men of Y Company are utterly lost, deep in enemy territory. Their only shelter is an abandoned German trench, a claustrophobic maze of blind corners and underground tunnels, overflowing with war dead and infested with rats. Here, exhausted and terrified, they seek refuge, waiting to be rescued.

But no-one will come to rescue them. And, one by one, the young men of Y Company begin to die. Others, driven quite mad, turn on each other. Yet what is this horror they face? Is the soil possessed by something even more terrible than the war that surrounds them, something ancient and unholy? Have centuries of bloodshed infected the very earth? Is the trench itself alive?

In this cursed, lonely place, Private Charles Shakespeare must overcome a terror greater even than his own deepest fear, a terror beyond all human understanding...

 brilliant film!

| | See all lanced92's reviews (3)

this film was brilliant i'm surprised i haven't heard of it before, the only reason i heard of it was by looking on this website at lots of different films.

it was about a group of soldiers taking over a german trench and being commanded to stay there and wait for help to arrive.

shortly after death starts lurking around the trenches and many soldiers start to be killed by the seemingly already deceased.

extremely good film well worth a watch

Without spoiling the film. Its scary at first but after a while it becomes predictable and loses its scaryness. The ending is a bit different and brings back a little bit of the fear/horror. That aside its a good film. If your a hardcore horror fan this might be a bit of a let down but if your more like myself and enjoy just a little bit then this is a good film and worth the buy.

Top 100 Games Reviewer

As the guy before me mentioned, this film isn't at all well known which suprises me. There didn't seem to be any hype, advertisement or even reviews as you can tell from the few on here. Perhaps it's because of the all British cast or something but it's still strange. Still, Deathwatch was quite enjoyable with plenty of those tense and gory scenes that are so great about horror films. A team of soldiers are stuck in an abandoned trench during World War 1 awaiting help. But the soldiers begin to turn on each other and in one or two cases, very strange deaths occur indeed. The trench seems to be alive and for some reason it wants them dead. The ending is probably the best bit about this film because you do not see what is coming. There are some scares but not enough to attain perfection. Still, why nobody has heard of Deathwatch is a mystery to me.

 love it!

i have just watched this film on t.v and i loved it so much i came straight online to buy it, i don't know why this isnt a well known film and there isnt a death watch trilogy, its brilliant! Buy this dvd if you love war films and dark horrors, or if you are just a blood craved phycopath who wants to see people die. or maybe not. :]

 Soldiers, mud, gore, barbed wire. Fantastic Horror!

An accomplished British cast delivers a deliciously eerie creeper with an adrenaline kick to it. The world war one trenches with a pulse of their own provide a tense and morbid backdrop, while paranoia feeds on the soldiers. This is a thinking man's horror movie and the script does not patronise. One of the most intelligent and visually compelling horrors around to date. The ending is fulfilling as it is unexpected.
