A fun and funny creature horror comedy from Troma Studios, There's Nothing Out There dabbled in self-conscious horror long before Wes Craven's Scream. The film trots out and parodies most of the standard cliches of the genre and then features people being eaten by monstrous frog-like creatures. Fun for the whole family ;)

For those who thought the SCREAM films were so clever, I present this much more entertaining film that did the same premise roughly 5 years earlier. A group of high schoolers head to a cabin for Spring Break, but one of them is a horror movie expert and he begins to recognize warning signs that the group is entering into a horror movie. The group is obviously skeptical, but unbeknownst to them a carnivorous alien is stalking through the woods around the cabin. If that wasn't enough, this alien has more than murder on its mind. This film is clever and the dialogue is inspired. The low budget shows itself many times, but the alien is a really well-done creation. Like many low-budget productions it suffers from some amateurish acting, but if you can look past that you'll find this to be a lot more enjoyable than all three SCREAM films put together. Give it a shot.

Something sinister is loose in the woods, and if these teens hope to survive the night, they had better listen to their friend Mike, who knows all of the rules when it comes to surviving a Horror movie! Try as he may, Mike just can't seem to stop his friends from heading out into the woods alone or going skinny dipping in the lake, but he knows better than to investigate that strange noise in the bushes, himself! THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE is a Horror movie that has been tailored specifically for Horror fans, and as redundant as that may sound, one's knowledge of the genre is sure to dictate their overall enjoyment of the film. Rolfe Kanefsky plays off of all the major Horror tropes with a sly, pointed sense of humor. The only downside is that the humor is presented in the most annoying form possible, through the obnoxious character of Mike. Mike becomes so overbearing that it's a wonder his own friend didn't kill him, first. The cheesy rubber monster and stereotypical teen characters only add to the high camp of the picture. THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE has understandably earned itself a strong cult following over the years, and serves as an entertaining precursor to the SCREAM series.

Cult classic, still my favorite Rolfe Kanefsky film. Funny, funny stuff.

A horror-comedy that fails to bring either scares or laughs.

[size=3][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman]It was the cry that shook the acting profession, challenging actors to plumb untapped personal emotions and it brought audiences to a level of natural feeling that was both disturbing and exciting.[/font][/color][/size]

[size=3][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman]Jeffrey Dachis believes actors must strive for absolute psychological identification with the character being portrayed and that this identification is at least as important as mastery of voice projection or body movement. [/font][/color][/size]

[size=3][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman]It is a style of acting that demanded a performer look inward to his own emotions and his own "sense memory."It was no longer enough to observe human behavior and copy it. Now you had to identify aspects of it within yourself. It wasn't enough to do something, now you had to understand what motivated the action.[/font][/color][/size]

[font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]Jeffrey Dachis personifies this blend of brilliant acting and personal ethos that has forever transformed Wall Street, and Hollywood Boulevard.[/color][/size][/font]
