This film is far more entertaining then I expected. Ray Stevenson (Punisher War Zone,Rome) stars as the CO of a group of mercs in Eastern Europe hired to take a scientist to a WW2 Nazi bunker. An interesting and very creepy film. Does a successful job of creating and maintaining a sense of doom throughout. The cut and paste cover art is hideous.

OUTPOST is an extremely interesting little Scottish film. The story is a simple one, a group of mercenaries are hired to escort a client into a war-zone in Eastern Europe. Easy in, easy out. But nothing is ever as easy as it sounds, is it? Soon, the mercenaries are being picked off, one by one. How can you fight something that isn't there?

Some of the previous reviewers have termed this a "zombie" movie, but it isn't. A zombie is killed by a head shot. These creatures aren't. It's a bit more complex than that. And there lies the fun. OUTPOST is a gory blast of a good time and has one of the more unique plots than one would find in a horror film. Yes, it's all been done before, but OUTPOST makes it seem fresh. It also boasts some of the most disturbing images that call back to a all too real past.

Your mission--see OUTPOST. It's a quirky, delicious horror treat. With a SS officer or two.

Don't believe the hype... This is not a zombie movie, per se. At least in the usual mindless, gut-munching way. It's more like a Nazi ghost story than a Nazi zombie movie.

That said, the movie does seem relatively well-shot and well-acted, aside from some shaky camera work and seemingly slight overexposure in the early part of the movie.

Honestly, I'd hoped for a bit more scares / suspense. In a few parts, it ALMOST delivered there. There was certainly a tiny bit of suspense / atmospheric horror feel in certain parts. But the promise of those suspenseful moments was never delivered on. I kept expecting something to jump out and blow my mind (or at least munch some guts or brains), but nothing ever really did and I was disappointed. Wasted potential. It just feels like this movie could have been so much more and so easily. I really wanted to like it, and I ALMOST DID. But, on the whole I was disappointed that it didn't do more. The ending felt more like something fit for an episode of the X-Files...

I guess I'd say it's "good, but not great." Better than Horrors of War, but certainly no Romero or 28 days later.

A film I got on a whim that I really didn't expect much from. Boy was I wrong! I don't want to give too much away so I won't speak of the major plot but this little known film is well worth your time if you're into Zombies or Nazi's. From reading a bit of the background on this film it is from Scotland and they spent only 1 million on it but don't let that question it's contents. The acting is great as is the character development. The only issue I had with the film at all is a few of the accents are a bit thick so you have to listen up closely. If I hadn't have found this on Swapa I would have been happy to pay retail price for it. This is a keeper for me.

Nice little independent Nazi Zombie movie.

"If you're tired of gigantic hollywood horrors with their formulaic plots and calculated frights, you might want to try this little movie. Set in Eastern Europe, shot in Scotland, starring Ray Stevenson and costing a little over £1 million, you might be pleasantly surprised at the quality of this movie. Genuine tension is offset with sparing gore. Great gun battles and some Nazi voodoo technology thrown in for good measure make this micro-budget effort well worth watching. There are some great characters from all over the world dying in some really creative ways and some pretty nasty baddies lurking in a pretty scary environment.

Why not bypass the hollywood dross and see how a bunch of enthusiastic Scottish film-makers do things. Great fun stuff."

"Outpost is great little film - I bought it on a whim, as the story synopsis was interesting to me. I was consistently surprised at what a solid and enjoyable film it truly is - well written, well shot, and well acted. The characters are compelling, and avoid the narrow, one-dimensional macho posturing that most lazy filmmakers believe characterizes military life. At the same time, it effectively captures the consequences of that violent profession on the people that choose to make it their life's work. The horror element is very effective, making maximum use of the setting to achieve some real scares - and I would particularly commend the make up and costuming, which are very effective and essentially seamless (never apparent even though they are depicting some vivid subject matter). The core story is an interesting and unique twist on a subject other films have touched on - and the ending, while not exactly unexpected, is effectively delivered. I was prepared for a made-for-SciFi Channel kind of flick, and can only say that it is head and shoulders above that level - a wonderful example of what talented filmmakers can do with fixed resources as long as they have a true passion for the story they're telling. It comes through here. Give it a look, it's well worth your time."

"For the most part I thought that the movie was good. Good group for the mercs. I liked how the group was consistant with the weapons. It appeared to me that the medic and the leader had similar weapons and the rest of the group all had the same type of weapon. Very impressed. They had claymores, why didn't they have greanades? I don't think I would call this a zombie movie though. Supernatural probably. When I think of a zombie movie I think of flesh eating!"
