Storyline

The year is 1945, the closing stages of WW2, and a German scientist by the name of Klausener is working on a frightening new technology that has the power to create an immortal Nazi army. Flash forward to present day, and a NATO task force is hurriedly deployed to Eastern Europe, where a sinister enemy appears to be mercilessly killing everything in its path. But this is no ordinary foe. Only Helena, a gutsy investigator on the trail of the notorious war-criminal Klausener, accepts the reality of that they are facing a battalion of Nazi Storm-Troopers, a veritable zombie army on the march. With the help of Wallace, a man who's been chasing Nazi secrets for years, the two of them team up with a Special Forces Unit to venture deep behind enemy lines. Their mission to fight their way back to the source of this evil army and prevent the seemingly inevitable rise of the 4th Reich. Written by The Film Catalogue

Great Stuff!

If you enjoyed the original, then you'll enjoy this to the power of ten!

Catherine Steadman is Lena, a Nazi hunter trying to locate and prosecute the very last of the escaped Nazis from WWII. Whilst tracking down one very elusive figure named Klausener, she becomes embroiled in something much larger. A search for a machine that Klausener built. Everybody seems to be looking for it, from the Americans to Klausener himself. It seems that Klausener was the person who originally hired Hunt (from the first Outpost) to search for the bunker and secure the machine. The machine is important as it creates a "unified-field" that makes exposed soldiers invincible whilst they remain within the field. The machine was first activated during WWII meaning there are undead and invincible Nazi soldiers running around killing everyone in their way. So begins a race against time to get into the bunker and grab the technology. The race is made more essential by the fact that the unified field is growing, meaning the zombie Nazi's can now attack over a wider and ever expanding area.

With that in mind you can already guess that this is Movie-Marmite. If you're up for a film about undead Nazi zombies then you'll love it. In fact this film is without doubt the best in the Nazi-zombie sub-genre. The production values are very high, the mood is tense and fraught with danger and despite the comic book set-up everyone is taking things very seriously. The writing, the acting, the direction... nobody does anything less than 100% commitment. Like the original Outpost you get the feeling that this was filmed on a micro-budget, yet they've somehow managed to make a movie that can hold its own against a Hollywood effort with ten times more cash. The really great news is that the heart that was put into the first movie is evident here too. This is a movie made by people who really care about what they're doing and care about entertaining their audience.

If I have one criticism it's that the film struggles with the weight of it's ideas. There are enough story threads here to make another five movies without running out of plot lines. It's almost as though you're watching a mini-series compressed into 90 minutes. But when compared to most low budget horrors, seeing a film with too many good ideas isn't necessarily a bad thing.
