Band suggestion for the Film

Im not sure how much of the musical score from this film has been set, but there is an American Industrial Band called HANZEL UND GRETYL,

The theme of this group for over 15 years has been post-apocalyptic extraterrestrial Nazis, with such songs as SS Deathstar, and Third Reich from the Sun.
They hold a rather large fan following in the Industrial metal scene worldwide and I think the inclusion of their music in some of the battle scenes would be especially appropriate.

Origine of the nazi's technology


What about an hidden life form intelligence behind nazi's technology? They could give support, gears and technologie to serve an another hidden purpose : annihilate all the human race.

Here's the trick : mislead people until the movie's end.

A good argument, but it may unnecessarily complicate the story. Besides, I rather like the idea that humans alone came up with the advanced technology without any outside help. After all, consider how close we came to having Victorian-era computers if Charles Babbage had not annoyed or alienated all his backers when he wanted to build his difference engine. Or if Heron of Alexandria had taken his steam powered toys a step further? Now, that brings to mind the possibility that the Nazis had been inspired by an earlier "secret" tradition of technology left as fragmentary clues, worthy of a little sidebar but not an entire plot twist.

The argument could incorporate Thule, Atlantis and Lemuria myths, as ancient humanoid developed civilizations that collapsed due to a High Energy Weapons War, and leaving aside alien civilizations
Perhaps choosing Thule, via Thulegesellshaft and using, besides anti-gravity, Temporal Physics fot a twist at the ending.

Admittedly, conspiracy lore offers two schools of thought in regard to Nazi UFOs - either they evolved from ancient Atlantean Vril vehicles OR the technology was acquired by SS members' telepathic contact to aliens from Aldebaran. The Aldebaran theory, however, turns a group of ruthless but inventive people on a crusade for Aryan dominance into a bunch of "useful stooges" for alien masterminds. It was no alien that came up with "Mein Kampf" or won the Reichstag elections, mind you.

In fact, I'd much more appreciate a "Conehead" ending to the invasion - or even a "War of the Worlds" ending - to the sudden realization "Ve haz been tricked by alien scum! Die, filthy nonhumans!" followed by the Nazi armada turning around to wipe out their hidden masters, redeeming themselves by sacrificing huge numbers of ships and men in the process ...
No. THAT would suck.

And what about the music?

Music is a very important part of any movie.
What have you discussed about it? I´m not a musician or composer but I think is important to consider that.
2001 Space Odyssey, Star Trek, Star Wars just to mention some. All of them had unforgettable melodies.
If writing something original enough for this one is hard, then why not to consider something already existing, like Kubrik did with" 2001 Space Odyssey" and also sprach Zarathustra?
Something like...let´say the "Lili Marlene" song, but changing the lyrics to adapt it to a lunar reality.

First part of the original english version.

Underneath the lantern (why not the moon?)
By the barrack gate
Darling I remember
The way you used to wait
T'was there that you whispered tenderly,
That you loved me,
You'd always be,
My Lilli of the Lamplight (moonlight?)
My own Lilli Marlene

And so on.

Keep the good work.

The musical "Cabaret" uses one particular song to indicate the Nazi rise to power. "Tomorrow belongs to me" is featured in the movie and found its way to youtube: (in German - sort of) (in English)

Saul, I believe they are using a lot of music from the Slovenian band Laibach:

Living in the moon

I don´t know if this as already been said but it would be nice if the nazys were deformed as they lived on the moon for more than 50 years and with the low gravity they would be weaker . I´m not talking about completely deformed bodies and faces, more like a lack of strength and thin members. With the result of that they had to create some sort of bionic members to help in daily tasks and consequently in their departure from the moon.

Well .... once you're able to make your Reichsflugscheibe hover through anti-gravitation, you can also maintain artificial gravity inside your base area.

Geomancers and Ley Lines

SS leader Heinrich Himmler was very interested in occult and esoteric sciences - the SS ran an organization called "Ahnenerbe" (ancestral heritage) to search for lost lore. Among other things. It is rumoured that the SS was very much into places of power, ley lines and other topics of geomancy - western feng shui, in a way.
So the Moon Nazis would certainly run an observatory for detailed astrological analysis of Earth's leaders and the best day for launching their attack. As well as diagrams of occult key points to turn into beachheads for maximum effect. They could even have kept the name Ahnenerbe.

Another Nazi/Nasa link

I hope that this hasn't been used before. I have searched your production but I can not find this information. It comes from the alternative science website:

NASA Nazis (photo). Hermann Oberth (forefront) with officials of the Army Ballistic Missile Agency at Huntsville, Alabama in 1956. Left to right around Oberth: 1) Dr. Ernst Stuhlinger (seated).2) Major General H.N. Toftoy, Commanding Officer and person responsible for "Project Paperclip," which took scientists and engineers out of Germany after World War II to design rockets for American military use. Many of the scientists later helped to design the Saturn V rocket that took the Apollo 11 astronauts to the Moon.3) Dr. Robert Lusser, a Project Paperclip engineer who returned to Germany in 1959. (Note: Lusser is incorrectly identified as Eberhard Rees in the standard NASA caption for this photo).

There must have been a reason for the Nazis to have been so cooperative!!!

Someone perhaps wrote about Wernher von Braun somewhere but this shot of Ian has fine detailed info.

Here some shots pointing to that general direction:

This topic "Iron Sky" seems to be a "Conspiracy theory generator", as is the idea of a secret nazi base too.

Whoops looks like I commented in the wrong production, disregard the previous comment. :S

Dirty business

Sometimes, a war is the perfect cover for country's/people to do what they always wanted to do, or to cover up there dirty secrets.
Example: WW1: Turkey did a genocide against the Armenian's
WW2: Genocide of the Jews by Hitler

Maybe this time Pakistan and India, North-and South Korea, China and Taiwan could start to settle their differences in a very aggressive way.

This is just an idea that I decided to post in case no one else had thought of it but it might be nice for the people who watch the movie to know what else is happening on earth instead of focusing on the battle between Nazi's and earth.

actually it seems to be a good idea. with over 2 million people, the turks in germany are now in the position of the jews in the 1930's. they are the largest minority in germany and also not wellcome by the average germans. it would not be a surprise if the nazis would put them into big ships (like the trains to ausschwitz) and transport to some camps. this behaviour would make a lot of sense since the moon nazis were originally from the ww2 era (have the fascist background and already practice the gennocide).

Communications with Earth

To tie in with all those
"they have continued to communicate with earth"
"they left sleeper cells behind"
ideas, here is one how communication may have worked in that time:

<Real World>
Ever heard of "Number Stations" ? -> Read about it :

For Short: There are radio transmitter stations that do send -read out- numbers that seem to be some kind of communication throughout the real world of today and in the past. Although they are thought to be for spy activities they did NOT stop after the soviet breakdown. Indeed activity seems to have risen since then. For the most part these can be recieved by simple broadcast radio receivers.
</Real World>

Nazis that went to the moon in 1945 most probably did NOT have some sort of sophisticated radio or computing equipment with them. So they have no Internet up there. But simple radio seems plausible. That would also concur with the giant wrench and the krad seen on the first two tariles. (Heavy machinery, nothing too modern)

Maybe these number stations are what they continue to use to communicate with their earth-bound allies, spies or sleeper cells.
Maybe they have knowledge of what happens down on earth, but are unable to fly down to acquire modern technology, like an battery drill :P
Maybe that we will see many more "Numer stations" in the coming years and 2018 will be their peak, in which they signal the spacenazi's to get back.

Sorry if this idea has been discussed before, we need a wiki...

I saw on genre description the movie classified as a sci-fi comedy. I really don't see the movie as a comedy, specially after the trailer. It has a so strong idea/concept behind it please don´t lose the integrity with lame jokes.

The movie will be more like a dark, serious comedy. A comedy that takes itself seriously. Nothing like Scary Movie or some other exaggerative comedy, but like The Fifth Element or Zombieland, a movie with serious storyline and theme, flavored with dark comedy and with some other comic elements.

Opening sequence

I think this is a really good way to start the movie:

It begins with a space mission from Earth to the Moon the same kind of missions in the 60s and 70s. The ship reaches the moon and orbits around it. When it goes through the dark side of the moon the capsule is intercepted by the Nazis. On this side of the moon theres no communications with Earth. The Nazis take over the ship in an aggressive way by killing its crew.
On Earth the mission control knows that something is happening and that´s when the nazis departure to Earth.
