In this third film in the OUTPOST series, OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ is a prequel that takes place in the last days of World War II on the Eastern Front.   A squad of elite Russian commandos has been fighting the Nazis and three of the squad are captured.  They end up in a bunker where the Nazis are trying to make aggressive undead Nazi soldiers.   They fight for survival and must fight for a way to escape the bunker while going up against Nazis and the angry muscular undead.


The third OUTPOST is a solid film in the series, but it does nothing to advance the threads left dangling by OUTPOST: BLACK SUN.  It is just a standalone film in a sense where a causal renter can watch it and not worry about seeing the other films.   I don’t remember any of the characters names except an American prisoner named Rogers.   I know the characters by type like tough Russian soldier, his soldier buddy, big Russian guy, wounded Russian guy, angry undead Nazi soldiers on steroids, crazy Nazi zombies, evil blond Nazi officer, old Nazi officer who enjoys the outdoors with a couple of soldiers and his undead zombie on a leash (his personal bloodhound who rips apart Russian soldiers on command).   I could relate more to the characters from the last OUTPOST film (the previously mentioned OUTPOST: BLACK SUN).   If they make another in the series, I hope they make it a sequel to OUTPOST: BLACK SUN and not have it be another trip into the past.



Only a theatrical trailer for the movie and previews for BANSHEE CHAPTER, THE CONSPIRACY, and HOLY GHOST PEOPLE


FINAL ANALYSIS:  OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ is a solid horror action rental, but it may disappoint people who expect characters to connect to and a film to continue from OUTPOST: BLACK SUN.
