I have a certain love or Troma movies and this is a great example - what's more this is now on YouTube.

A smart low grade horror with classic Troma comedy - enjoy!

Hilarious parody of bad horror movies, by being exactly that....a bad horror movie. It is obvious that the makers of this movie love horror, and all of its tropes.

This movie is good cheeky fun

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 ;)

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.

"Are you saying we're in a horror movie?" "It's a possibility"

Self-referential horror years before Scream made it mainstream, this is an entertaining b-movie with all the standards (bad acting, crappy looking monster, sex, boobs and blood) but add in a character who knows all the horror clichà (C)'s, and is willing to believe they are in a horror movie and it all works. Definitely worth a watch for fans of b-movies, as this is a great one.

Deliciously postmodern horror film, paving the way for pictures like Scream and Grindhouse. Low production values and amateurish acting betray it for the student film that it is, and I think Mike would be more likeable if he had a bit more evidence to his paranoia around the beginning, but the spot-on parody and the incorporation of a highly visible boom mic into the plot more than make up for any flaws.

Genius. This movie paved the way for every horror movie that INTENTIONALLY didn't take itself seriously. This movie was purely independent and has many great horror movie cliche gags. "Sharks? Did somebody say 'sharks'?" God bless you, Wendy Bednarz.

I wish I could find this. I seen it years ago and never forgot it.

Most comparable to THE EVIL DEAD, 'There's Nothing Out There' is a crazy, zany, and blood-soaked black comedy that's a must-see for horror fans.

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.

I have a penchant for cheesy movies, and even I wasn't expecting much out of this. Imagine my surprise when, ludicrous as it is, this film actually ended up being enjoyable! Recommended if you've ever kicked back a weekend, laughing at terrible sci-fi flicks with friends.

A film no better than the films it is making fun of. Bad raunchy humor and only one good moment--when the "nerd" type grabs a boom mike from out of frame to hoist himself out of the way of the monster, set to a cribbing of the Indiana Jones theme. Otherwise the film is strictly a routine teen body count film played for laughs.

a frog alien thing that fucks chicks and kills dudes... nice. craig peck is one of the greatest jerks of all time in this movie. "nobody likes a mouth full of shaving cream"
June 1, 2007
This is a funny horror/comedy in which the alien menace is thwarted by, of all things, shaving cream....

[size=3][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman]It was Jeffrey Dachis in [i]There?s Nothing Out There[/i], first on a New York video monitor and then on the world's movie screens and the performance would launch a revolution in acting. [/font][/color][/size]

[size=3][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman]It was a cry from an emotional depth to which theater and film audiences had not yet been exposed.[/font][/color][/size]

[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]It was "method," a style of acting evolved from the teachings of Russian director Constantin Stanislavsky.[/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]
