1944 - Deep behind the German Eastern Front. After a successful raid on a Nazi convoy, Sergeant Dolokhov and his Russian Commandos uncover shocking research that could change the tide of the war, but before they can get to safety, they are captured by the Nazi s. Inside the Nazi facility the Russians discover that the crazed Colonel Strasser is developing an invincible fighting force: an unstoppable army of undead Nazi soldiers. The two Russian warriors must battle their way through a horde of aborted experiments to escape the brutal facility -before the Nazis can perfect their research and unleash their zombie army across Europe.

Fans of horror and gore won't be disappointed with this.

I saw this film at Frightfest last year and as a big fan of the first two, I thought it might be hard to top them. I was delighted to be proved wrong! I love my zombie films, and horror in general, so anyone with a like mind, I would strongly recommend to.

Be prepared for a lot of blood and gore!

I awaited this release having been a huge fan of the original. Part 2 was less my thing but Rise of the Spetsnaz is the best in the series if for no other reason than the all out action. It's the kind of movie that knows exactly what it is and delivers on the guts, gore and guns. Very atmospheric and it never lags. The Russian lead character, Dolokhov, Bryan Larkin was a tank of a soldier and you get behind his fight till the end. It also fills in some gaps in the trilogy as this is a sequel. Mostly like a war movie with a few Zombies and twisted bad guy. Highly recommend .

Perhaps the most reviled villain in modern history and cinema’s go-to bad guys, the Nazis, have enjoyed something of a renaissance in the horror genre recently. Hitler’s henchmen and their forays into horror don’t always yield the greatest of results, varying from the fantastic Dead Snow to The Asylum’s frustratingly comedic Bloodstorm. Naturally, this review is concerned with the third entry in the Outpost series, Outpost 3: Rise of the Spetsnaz.

Given that the first film and its follow up (Black Sun) were wildly different, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from OP3. What I got was effectively an action horror film that acts as a prequel to the events of the preceding movies. From the outset, the film doesn’t skimp on explosions, gore, death and horror, both of the war/action type and the zombie variety. Thankfully, the majority, if not all of the effects here are practical in nature, adding to the overall feel of the film and leading me to wince at some moments (I never have been able to sit passively during a throat-cutting scene!)

As can be seen from the front cover, Kieran Parker and his Outpost crew brought in a mountain of a man to assist with this film: the 6’5”, 300+lb MMA fighter James Thompson. Given the man’s pedigree, the fight scenes in OP3 are particularly well done and expertly choreographed by Carter Ferguson and at no point felt contrived or overly theatrical; lending a brutal and realistic aspect to the combat absent from many movies.

Ultimately, Rise of the Spetsnaz focuses on Dolokhov: a Russian special forces commander played by Bryan Larkin.

Format: DVD
In this episode the Red Guard encounter the remote location for the Nazi "Lazarus Project" where they create Nazi zombie soldiers. I have seen so many Nazi Zombie films, at one point I started to pull for them. The first half of the film is the capture and experimentation with the Russian (and one American) soldiers as victims for the Nazi body building zombies. The second half consists of the formulaic escape attempt.

The Nazi commander smokes his cigarette in a annoying cliche manner.

There are "humor" attempts. "Some call it a blasphemous type of alchemy. I call it messy work with lots of mistakes." The color during the prison segment was pretty well washed out apparently by design to give the film a dark and gloomy feel. I felt it just looked cheap.

While there are worse Nazi zombie films out there, this one didn't make the grade. Will work as a rental if you are a fan of the series.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

loved the action from start to finish, my favourite bits were right at the start, so wanted to see more halftrack action!, I was that hooked on all three I imported this one, and its the full gore version, uncut and English, a cult classic!

Another outpost outing, but set in WW2 with Russian Commandos taking on the zombie/monsters.
I enjoyed this film, if you like the past 2 and pulp nazi fiction (feels a bit like the castle wolfenstein games made into a film) you enjoy it too, so sit back with a beer and enjoy.
