“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Nazis at the Center of the Earth (2012)
How bad is it? It's cheesy and trashy and there's some true horribleness in places. Should you see it? Yes, but only if you're not easily offended.
This shot on video flick stars Gary Busey's son and is about researchers in Antarctica being dragged underground (not really the center of the earth) by half-rotted zombie Nazis planning a comeback. It's not unlike "Outpost," "Dead Snow" and "Iron Sky," but it also borrows from "They Saved Hitler's Brain!" Behold Robo-Hitler! There's also a Luftwaffe UFO that carries missiles containing flesh-eating viruses. There's a little nudity and there's a lot of gore, including at least one scene that is memorably gruesome (and comic in a dark way).
