The Iron Gestapo (2007) is a fake grindhouse trailer. Submitted for a contest that was sponsored by the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival to promote the 2007 release of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s double feature Grindhouse.

In 1944, the US military uncovered a top-secret Nazi weapon in a bunker outside of Berlin, Germany. For forty years, this weapon has lain dormant in a high-security Army base beneath the city of New York until… today! Twenty feet of titanic terror! Twelve tons of steel forged by an Iron Fist! A mechanical menace that only liberty can stop! The Iron Gestapo! When evil wakes up from a forty year nap, New York City is overrun! When the future is at war with the past! When it’s man against machine! An evil so terrifying, you’ve only seen it in your nightmares! Featuring Buck Anderson as Colonel Cartman. Warren Douglas as Private Staples. And Geraldine Gayle as DeeDee – the whore! The Iron Gestapo!

My thoughts… The Iron Gestapo is awesome stop-motion sci-fi Nazi mayhem! Oh, and the voice-over guy is one of the best in the SXSW Grindhouse 101 trailers!
