In 1945, a Nazi scientist was working on
a technology to create invincible immortal soldiers. In the present day,
Lena (Catherine Steadman)
is tracking down Nazi war criminals and her journey for Nazi war criminal Klausener leads her to Eastern Europe
where NATO has been dispatched to take down a horde of undead Nazi storm troopers. They
can only kill these soldiers after letting off an electromagnetic pulse as they journey to the center of the source where

man named Wallace (Richard Coyle) and the NATO task force to stop the rise of the Fourth Reich which takes them to an outpost
powered by a mysterious power source. The clock is ticking as NATO just wants to nuke the place if their mission
OUTPOST: BLACK SUN is a creepy action horror
movie. It reminds me of the good cult direct to video movies you find in
video stores in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The film features some
good production design and creature makeup. The transfer does suffer from the
nighttime scenes from looking a little dark and murky. It is a sequel which
can stand alone and you don’t need to have seen the first OUTPOST to enjoy this film (a second sequel is in the works). It does make me curious to track down the first film and watch it.
Before the main menu plays, a series of
trailers for other releases from XLRator Media play.
THE MAKING OF OUTPOST: BLACK SUN is a five
minute promotional EPK featurette that has interviews with cast and crew. Also
on the disc is the trailer for OUTPOST: BLACK SUN.
FINAL ANALYSIS: OUTPOST: BLACK SUN is great direct to DVD entertainment if you’re looking for a good action film
to rent. Too bad they didn’t include more extras focusing on the making
of the movie.
