In just a few hours, Julius Avery’s Overlord will be storming its way into theaters everywhere, and if you’re into historical horror, it’s most certainly something you’re going to want to experience on the big screen. The first-ever R-rated production out of J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production house, Overlord follows a group of American soldiers as they cross enemy lines on a mission to take down a Nazi base in occupied France, only to discover that they are using local civilians in their twisted medical experiments.

While at a recent press day for the film, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with three of Overlord’s co-stars—Wyatt Russell, John Magaro, and Iain De Caestecker—about coming together to form a brotherhood on the big screen for the horror/action hybrid, and how a few days in boot camp prior to shooting really helped them all come together. The trio also discussed how helpful all the practical elements to Overlord were during production, and how Avery made it all come together in the end.

Look for Overlord in theaters everywhere this weekend!
