Critic Reviews for Outpost: Black Sun
This sequel doesn't offer up enough horror to make this a particularly interesting viewing at all.
History may be doomed to repeat itself, but does that mean we have to watch it over and over again?
despite joyous revelling in the B-movie absurdities of mad scientists, zombie ghosts, cackling witches and ticking bombs, Barker's approach is largely po-faced, enabling a balance between the pure thrills of genre and some altogether graver themes.
It plays out like a dull mission from a particularly naff first-person-shooter video game.
Audience Reviews for Outpost: Black Sun
Second effort from the entertaining Outpost gives a more detailed plot than the original, yet retains the same ingredients that made the first one well worth seeing. The cast do a good job in their respective roles, and the script is fairly tightly written with plenty of intricate passages to make things quite interesting for the viewer. As a Sci Fi horror film, OutPost: Black Sun works well enough even if it doesn't do anything to elevate the series to new heights of excitement. The norm here is good, and it is a skillfully crafted sequel to an otherwise quite simple first film. What stands out again is the gore and outright gore splatter fest that ensues. This is a must for gore hounds everywhere, and it's a film is just as entertaining as the first picture. Outpost: Black Sun is far from a great horror film, but for a low budget production, it has more heart than many of big Hollywood rehashes that are simply cash cows to make a quick buck. Films like this deserve attention because the level creativity involved in the making of film is skillfully done so as to attract old and new horror fans. The formula here works, simple idea, thoroughly entertaining, and that's how the genre should really. The emphasis on pure shocks and thrills in this follow-up make this a riveting horror yarn that should delight traditional horror hounds that crave something different and in a way it's nothing new either, but the way the material is tackled well enough to grab your attention, makes you not care about the films
A solid sequel to Outpost, Black Sun follows a military group as they attempt to battle the Nazi zombies raised in the first film and destroy the machine that created them before they can reignite the Nazi program of world conquest. Somewhat stupid but brutal, creepy, and action-packed, Black Sun is a fun sequel to a film that gave a somewhat unique twist to the Nazi-zombie subgenre.
While it's premise is beyond stupid, some of the acting is a bit sub-par, and the cliffhanger ending pissed me off, Outpost:Black Sun is still an entertaining B-movie experience due to some witty dialogue, gruesome action scenes, tense moments, and great make-up. I would actually be interested in seeing a sequel to this.
