The Crimson Ocean - Preview

The Crimson Ocean

Preview by Jack Foley

BASED on one of the most shocking and cataclysmic real-life disasters of World War II, The Crimson Ocean is an unforgettable portrayal of survival and courage in a world gone to hell.

In January 1945, as Allied forces begins its winter offensive against the German Reich on the Eastern Front, more than 10,000 troops and desperate refugees cross the Baltic Sea on a dangerously overcrowded vessel to the safety of the west.

But when enemy U-boats surround and torpedo the ship, the rescue mission rapidly descends into a brutal battle for survival.

With the death toll soaring to a staggering 9,000 victims – six times higher than the Titanic disaster – this gripping voyage of humanity brings to life the brutal reality of war.

Joseph Vilsmaier’s film stars Kai Wiesinger and Valierie Neihaus.
