Storyline

Seven teens head up to a cabin on the lake for spring break. Mike has studied all horror films on video, and recognizes the signs of foreshadowing of doom. The others dismiss his concerns as the workings of a person that watches too many videos, but there really is something out there, and the teens begin experiencing an attrition problem when they start stumbling into all the cliches found in a typical teen horror film.

Decent enough comedy horror
21 February 2007 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

I'm not the biggest fan of horror comedy, but this one adequately takes the clichés of eighties horror and blends them into a fairly funny little flick. It's obvious that the people involved were horror fans themselves, as the film revolves around an all-too typical horror theme. The lead character is Mike; a horror movie buff, who travels up to a lake-side cabin to spend a weekend with six friends. Mike begins to spot signs of danger, but the others dismiss his theories. However, it turns out that he's not wrong and pretty soon the group fall foul of something living out there in the area surrounding the lake-house. The film doesn't really work as a horror film in its own right; obviously the director was more interested in generating laughter than scares. But the self-referential jokes are quite funny, and the film is good at picking out the various horror movie clichés and poking fun at them. Unfortunately, I saw this on a rather poor VHS copy, but apparently there's a better DVD out now. Overall, There is Nothing Out There didn't do as much for me as it evidently did for others, but it makes for a fun viewing and is recommended to fans of horror comedy.
