"It's a good, good project, you haven't seen anything like it for a while," said producer Gary Kurtz about Panzer 88, the supernatural horror/action film that's brought him back into the world of filmmaking. "It's a visceral, reality-based story with horror overtones, and the idea is to have be like the best of the graphic novels these days."
Kurtz was interviewed by Hero Complex, the Los Angeles Times' blog about all things genre. In the piece director Peter Briggs is also interviewed, and a new piece of conceptual artwork showing the diabolical threat facing the German tank and its soldiers was shown.- Hero Complex.

What is Panzer 88 about? Bloody Disgusting was interested in uncovering why this project is a supernatural thriller and got the answer from its director, Peter Briggs, in an exclusive one-on-one interview.
"Panzer 88 is, at the end of the day, a supernatural horror/action movie set during World War 2," explains Briggs to the website. "Specifically, it takes place in October 1944. And when we locked down that particular date, which we had to do for logistical reasons within the script, and also to ensure that a lot of the military hardware we referenced within the story was actually deployed in the field at the time...we went to immense pains to ensure that everything that happened in our movie -- troop movements, real-life character events, the whole ball of wax -- were one hundred percent accurate to real events. And then, what happens to our fictional characters within that milieu, fantastical as our story is, seems contextually more plausible."
