Outpost is a low budget horror film from the UK. I have been hearing about this movie for some time now, but I never got around to watching it. When I was browsing FEARnet I saw it on there and decided to watch it. I am extremely glad I did. Outpost was an amazing find.
The plot is very interesting and is completely unique in the horror genre. I don’t want to go too in depth to it because it might ruin it since the film has a lengthy introduction to explain the plot. The length of the introduction is what brought down the film’s score for me. It was too long for a film of about 90 minutes. The main premise of the film is that a scientist and a group of soldiers go to an abandoned Nazi bunker. Their trip is financed by a wealthy business man who believes that there is something in the bunker worth a lot of money. The group finds this but also runs into something unexpected.
I have to applaud the people who did the casting on the film. For their low budget, they managed to find some great actors. This was Ray Stevenson’s first lead role and he did a great job. He is now doing big budget films like Punisher: War Zone and Cirque du Freak.
The film does a great job of capturing the atmosphere of the era. It is set in present day, but feels like it is in WWII with the color palette. Pretty much the entire film has colors from the green and brown spectrum, minus a few Nazi flags here and there and of course blood.
The kills in the movie are well done. There is a decent amount of blood and gore, but nothing over the top. Outpost is a well done film, and I would recommend it to any fan of the genre.
