There’s Nothing Out There (1990) (BLU-RAY/DVD REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Rolfe Kanefsky
STARRING: Craig Peck, Wendy Bednarz, Mark Collver, Bonnie Bowers
AVAILABLE FROM Vinegar Syndrome

After being invited to a remote lodge, along with some friends, Mike immediately begins to sense that something isn’t right, but none of his friends believe him. Unfortunately, they’re dead wrong, and a slimy alien frog monster has indeed landed in the nearby woods and set out to fulfill it’s mission of killing all human males and mating with females. Can Mike convince his friends that there IS something out there, before the men have their brains sucked out and the women are carrying green mutant fetuses?

There’s Nothing Out There is a self-away horror movie that was made before that became the thing to be. It also has an interesting history and has a good case for saying Scream kind of literally ripped the film off. That’s another story, but as for the movie aliens are here and killing people. As you’d expect a group of people go to the woods and things are about to get very typical or at least they would be if one guy who is putting his horror knowledge to the test wasn’t there to try to detail the obvious. The movie is probably way more funny than it is anything else, but it does offer up some horror staples like cheezy effects, blood, and nudity. I think anyone who even likes horror comedies just a little bit will be all about what they are getting here in There’s Nothing Out There. We have a few moments where you could argue that the movie might be going a little too far with the wink-wink stuff, but I still had a blast while watching it.

Rolfe Kanefsky has directed a number of other films besides this one and I’ve seen a great deal of them. That being said, I think this is easily his best movie and I’m happy to see it come to Blu-ray with a very solid transfer so we can finally retire the old Troma DVD. This is also a packed disc as far as extras go with several commentaries and short films. One of which called “Copycat” that tells how this movie might just tie-in with Wes Craven’s Scream. So, this is a release that offers lots of content to keep you busy as well as a very fun movie that I think most of you will enjoy. If you like horror movies that offer the essentials but then isn’t afraid to turn around and poke fun at them this is a movie for you.
