Filmed on the exact same locations and sets used for BloodRayne: The Third Reich (2011) and Blubberella (2011).
The film was virtually ignored throughout its production until the release of its first trailer online which was hugely controversial. Director Uwe Boll was lambasted for shooting a short cameo of himself which he included in the trailer in which he plays an SS officer who appears to be falling asleep whilst on guard outside a room in which masses of people are being gassed to death in. Critics attempted to boycott the movie after the release of its gruesome trailer.
The film opens with a personal statement by director Uwe Boll and contains interviews with German school teenagers about the Auschwitz Concentration and Extermination Camp which open and close the film.
