Excellent British horror film.,
This review is from: Outpost (DVD)
If you are a fan of horror movies like Dog Soldiers, The Keep or (the original) The Fog, you will definately dig Outpost. Great cast, wicked "gothic" look and some of the best Nazi Zombies ever put on film. The acting is solid as are the sets and cinematography. Another cool thing is that this independent movie is shot in the 2:35 aspect ratio, which is normally reserved for epic Hollywood productions. The color scheme is that of a Nine Inch Nails video and it really gives certain scenes a nightmarish, otherwordly feel. As a movie snob, I am VERY surprised how much I enjoyed Outpost and I hate 90% of the horror films I see these days. This reminds me of early John Carpenter (Halloween, The Fog, The Thing) as the horror is implied more often than shown (don't worry, there are a few brutal killings as well). Blows away the cult 70's film ShockWaves (also about experimental Nazi Zombies). I hope this movie gets a cult following and a sequel is made.
