"The Outing" is a serviceable, somewhat middle-of-the-road '80s slasher with its supernatural leanings and uniqueness of location the two key differentiating elements.

Audience Reviews for Outing


A cheesy poorly made b-horror flick, that features an interesting creature (even when it babbles uncomprehensible stuff), has some cool death scenes but it's just overly long and features an high school "drama" that is tacky beyond belief.

A watchable (yet forgettable) horror film about the supernatural mayhem unleashed when some dumbass kids release a spirit from a brass lamp, as if they've never heard of the curse of the djinn.



Great movie but is more of a spoof on horror films than one itself. It is freakishly funny and frightening at the same time. By the time viewers realizes that they've been had, it is too late. There are two movies that are confused as being one. The Lamp (the really scary one) and the Outing which is not the same film.
