Diane’s Dark Corner is pleased to welcome home a most special addition to the family, Pennywise 2017. Clearly Annabel is smitten and Billy is wondering what’s the BFD with that guy. I have EIGHT movies under my belt to his 1 1/2! Many thanks to Kerrie @candlelight_corner for her vision and her talent in bringing him to life. #horrormovies#horrorcollector#horrorcollector#horrorjunkie#horrornerd#DCD
OUTPOST (2008), OUTPOST II: BLACK SUN (2012) and OUTPOST III: RISE OF SPETSNAZ (2013), are a loosely connected trilogy of low budget British made Nazi zombie films. What the first OUTPOST lacks in means is makes up for in above par acting and creepy encroaching dread and dank foggy atmosphere. The story focuses on a band of international mercenaries hired to protect a covert expedition somewhere in Eastern Europe to hunt for an ANCIENT ALIENS style God box, a device developed by Nazi scientists with the goal of resurrecting an army of the dead. The first OUTPOST film confidently succeeds as an isolated and claustrophobic indie horror chamber piece. It never gets too big for its Jack Boots. Made four years later, OUTPOST II: BLACK SUN falters because it attempts to emulate the scope and structure of a louder Hollywood action creature feature, done on the cheap. The script isn't anywhere near as polished and the cast not as established. It's certainly worth staying for the bombastic electrified Nazi zombie mania and nutty zombie army conclusion. Things improve drastically in OUTPOST III: RISE OF SPETSNAZ and the end result is one of the most memorable and original of the entire Nazi zombie sub genre. RISE OF SPETSNAZ is an origin story set during World War II focusing on a band of tough-as-nails Russian soldiers who are captured by the SS and find themselves in the belly of the beast, the Nazi zombie laboratory. It's a gory and extremely violent ride as we journey with the Russians as they fight a long and sadistic escape through hoards of German soldiers and roided out Nazi zombies. So, skip OUTPOST II and watch OUTPOST and OUTPOST III. They make for an extremely satisfying 3 hour long creature feature. #CreatureFeaturedayFriday A day late I know!
