There's nothing out there but a slimy green thing

10/10
Author: Darlene Owen Takagi from Los Angeles, CA
19 September 1998

For a low budget movie, it was quite well done. Outstanding performance by Craig Peck as Mike; who's an avid horror movie goer and had all the best lines in this film. Worth watching for him who seems to be the only smart one in the film

There's Nothing Out There...Wanna Bet?

Author: Prolox from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

So said the tag line for this cheap, but fun & silly horror/comedy released during the horror movie draught of the early 90's. Seven stereotypical kids that you usually see in films like this, head up to a cabin in the woods (this is never a good idea) only to get picked off & possessed by a green, alien frog like mutant, with cat like eyes & razor sharp teeth. As the body count mounts, the few remaining kids try to fight the beast off with cans of shaving creams & their knowledge on horror movies. THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE is a pre-SCREAM like horror/comedy, that sadly is long forgotten by many horror fans & is unfairly left out & overlooked by critics who claim that SCREAM invented the post modern irony & sharp satirical wit on the horror genre, when in fact THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE was the one that invented that! In fact it wouldn't surprise me if writer KEVIN WILLIAMSON who wrote SCREAM, had seen this film prior to writing it, & decided to take the main character of Mike (who calls all the shots & is just like the character of RANDY from SCREAM with all of his horror film knowledge) & change his name to Randy & instead of setting the film in the woods with an alien beastie, decided to re-locate the action to a small town & made the killer a slasher instead. The resemblance of both films & the lead character are just to coincidental. The special effects are rather cheap but fun & gory (not to mention gooey) the comedy is funny, the monster is interesting & gross & unlike SCREAM, the film-makers are not afraid to get their actresses nude. The film looks rather cheap & pays homage to many horror items, in particular EVIL DEAD & is a lot of fun to watch if you are in the right frame of mind. Highly recommended to horror fans. There is Something Out There alright...this movie! so what are you waiting for, do yourself a favour go out & rent this movie!

***1/2 stars

Fun sendup of pastiche monster flicks.

Author: EyeAskance from fabulous Las Vega$!

A group of horny youths decide to enjoy their Spring Break at a secluded backwoods house, unaware that there is a mind-controlling carnivorous monster on the prowl. Only the horror movie fanatic geek of the bunch can save the day...if he can get anybody to listen to him.

THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE is a commendable low-budget parody, and a solid B monster flick at the same time. I usually don't care for crossing the horror and comedy genres, but I was surprised to find this one entirely enjoyable. A nice looking cast, a laughable slimy monster(imagine a giant land-dwelling tadpole with a huge, toothy rictus and tentacles bearing industrial strength suction cups), and a couple of good gross-out gore sequences make TNOT a worthy watch and the perfect party flick.

6/10

There's Nothing Funny About This

3/10
Author: Coventry from the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls
7 November 2010

Seven friends head out to the summer house of one of their parents, unaware – of course – that the area is currently being terrorized by a bright green amphibious monster. "There's Nothing Out There" is supposedly a horror comedy and a spoof, but personally I can't say I noticed myself laughing a lot. The script, courtesy of debuting director Rolfe Kanefsky, is never really witty and observant but merely dull and derivative. The primary parody element of the film exists of a token guy who points out every possible cliché and stereotype linked to the horror situation they are in. For example, when the group requests some skinny- dipping teenagers to leave their holiday territory, the guy says something like: "What are you doing? They're ideal random murder victims and while they're being killing, we have additional time to get the hell out". Get it? Apparently this works sufficiently enough for most people, as the film has quite a large fan base, but personally I found it quite annoying. Even more annoying than the jokes were the incredibly high amount of hectic POV camera shots and the seven infantile main characters. They bicker the entire time and actually behave like the worst friends ever. They collectively lock up the nerd in the basement for a whole night and it takes them more than a full day to realize another couple has gone missing. The monster looks cheesy and ridiculously fires green rays from his eyes, but its killing rate is infuriatingly low. I also never heard about frogs being sensitive for shaving cream? The only horror moment worth mentioning is the amusing melting sequence. Other than that, "There's Nothing Out There" is pretty stupid and very forgettable.
