5.0 out of 5 stars Dawn Of The Demented 25 Feb 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Six months after an outbreak of a neurological virus that became a pandemic, Daniel(Alton Milne) is driving alone through the countryside of Dumfries, when his car runs out of fuel. He comes across an isolated farmhouse, where he discovers another uninfected person, young April(Sandra Louise Douglas) who shoots first and asks questions after. The two are initially very wary of the other's motivations, but start to become reliant on eachother. Then one day, a woman called Kate arrives at the farm, seemingly unaffected by the virus and looking for shelter. Meanwhile Daniel starts to wonder why April, who has been in close proximity to those who had caught the virus, should remain so healthy.
This low budget British horror is a very worthy addition to the genre. Making '28 Days Later' and its kind look like Comedy Playhouse, this is a dark,brooding,contemplative piece, as much a character study into loss, bereavement and isolation as it is an outright horror. Thats not to say that it doesn't deliver its fair share of chills, as the main characters are figures on a very dark canvas, the circumstances of the outbreak forcing them to carry out terrible acts in order to survive. This is especially the case for April, very impressively portrayed by newcomer Sandra Louise Douglas, who lives in a sort of motioness state of being on the farmhouse. Daniel too has a very dark skeleton in the closet.
I'm going to whisper this quietly, but I can see this becoming a bit of a cult film over the years to come. An excellent film that belies both its lack of budget and its lack of pretensions to shine out brightly in the world of the 21st Century British horror film. 5 out of 5

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good zombie film 23 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
I've watched many zombie films - seen some real rubbish. This is defanataley one of my favourites. Obvious made on a low-ish budget, but doesn't suffer from the same clunky camera work, editing and acting as some other recent films like Zombie Diaries and Autumn. Talking about Autumn this film is very close to the story line from the book Autumn. So if you liked that book watch this film.

2.0 out of 5 stars The dead are out there...somewhere 17 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A zombie virus is sweeping the Scottish countryside, but somehow you'd hardly notice it from this odd perspective. A mysterious girl is hiding out in a lonely cottage, hoping to survive the events going on outside. She defends her home from the odd stray zombie with little more than an air-rifle (this is no action-packed apocalypse). The desolate rural visuals fail to create the tense, isolated atmosphere they're trying to achieve. Also the ending is quite confusing. Maybe curious zombie fans might wanna see this, but anyone else shouldn't bother.

Extras/Bonus features:

Trailer.
The making of The Dead Outside.
Director's commentary with Kerry Anne Mullaney.

2.0 out of 5 stars FAR FROM THE MADDENING CROWD 22 May 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The film has a zombie feel to it. Daniel(Alton Milne) is fleeing infected humans in his Volvo when it runs out of gas in the Scottish countryside. He manages to make his way to a farmhouse where there is a young woman and nurse (Sandra Louise Douglas) who has managed to survive the viral outbreak. She is a tough cookie who shoots first and doesn't need to ask questions.

She has a past that is explored in flashbacks. Daniel is not as tough as her. The film examines the pyschological aspect of a "zombie" killer, someone who might be a bit insane to begin with. Then another woman shows up who Daniel does not want to kill. The film uses flashbacks and dreams, but not effectively. Ho-hum. A bit lame.

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

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit dull really 15 Jan 2013
By Robert
Format:DVD
Zombie films often suffer from a distinct lack of storyline focusing purely on shock and gore, this one doesn't have that problem. Unfortunately it's gone too far the other way, any real action is shown in glimpses through flashbacks, State of Emergency gets it right in balance, this film doesn't. It's not a terrible movie, the characters are well built up and the storyline is watchable, but if you're looking for something to watch that'll keep you on the edge of the seat, this certainly isn't it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Low budget horror 17 Oct 2010
By Darktan
Format:DVD
A very tense film with a number of good jump moments. Only slight problem is the editing speed on some of the flashbacks. Otherwise this shows what can be achieved with a decent script, cast and director regardless of the budget. Would recommend. One of the better low budget horror films.

1.0 out of 5 stars dreadful 18 May 2010
Format:DVD
The Dead Outside is truly an awful film from start to finish. It is hideously boring and nothing really much happens. A virus has broken out in the uk and a survivor finds a remote farm in scotland in which a young girl is living on her own..she reluntantly accepts him into the fold and the 2 have a troubled relationship in agreing on what to do for the best. This is a zero budget film..now if you have a decent script you can get around the lack of zombies ( there's only 2 or 3 in the whole movie!!) and create a taught suspenful movie about the horror of the situation but the script is so dire and the actors so un-engagging you just don't care what happens next.

For the horror buffs out there don't expect lots of zombies,blood,gore or action as there is very little in the film.

Could have been god in decent hands but deadly dull.

Low budget, but doesn't suffer much for that. I'm surprised I hadn't heard of it before. I'd certainly recommend it.

I wish I'd read all of the reviews before purchasing this film. I'm so thankful it only actually cost me 2.99 but if i'm really honest it wasn't even worth that price! Read more

This is indeed a fine movie & worth your while. But if you are looking for real horrors scares this is not the place go. You tend to concentrate on the images after a while ...
