Blood Creek is a 2009 horror film directed by Joel Schumacher that explores the concept of immortal Nazis who aim to revive the Third Reich using ancient runestones. The movie stars Henry Cavill, Michael Fassbender, and Dominic Purcell. The story follows two brothers who uncover a dark secret on a farm in West Virginia. The secret involves a Nazi supervillain, Richard Wirth (played by Fassbender), who seeks to conquer the world by harnessing the power of magical runestones. Despite not featuring traditional Nazi zombies, Blood Creek incorporates a dark and true history of 1930s Nazis' obsession with the occult. Wirth, who becomes an inhuman monster, strives to push his occultic powers further and revive a thousand-year empire. As the film progresses, the Marshall brothers seek revenge on Wirth to prevent him from harming others. The movie ends with a tantalizing suggestion that there may be other similar threats out there. While not a commercial success, Blood Creek continues to be an interesting and intense horror film worth exploring.
