    Q&A: Director Kieran Parker on “OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ”

    From creating the story of the original film to now taking the reins of the series behind the camera, there are few people as instrumental to the OUTPOST franchise as Kieran Parker. A longtime and active producer on the films, Parker steps directs for the first time for the prequel, OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ. Lean, intense and as bloody as the Nazi zombie madness that came before it, RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ is a worthy entry, offering insight to some of the key mysteries of the first film while providing a wealth of material which could be explored in future OUTPOST films. As the film makes its VOD debut, courtesy of XLrator Media, Parker spoke to FANGORIA about going back in time with this third offering of OUTPOST…

    “OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ” (Movie Review)

    Despite being much more imaginative and frightening than their popular subgenre counterpart DEAD SNOW, the OUTPOST films have been somewhat underrated by horror fans. By keeping something of a straight face in their depiction of undead Nazis, they mostly eschew the camp factor often associated with the concept, and perhaps are disregarded as a result. However, certain hardcore followers have stood by the series for its legitimate style and storytelling merits, and the newest addition to the franchise, OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ, retains those merits as it further explores the mythology behind the films.

    “24 EXPOSURES” (Movie Review)

    After his impressive and darkly comic horror debut with a segment of V/H/S, many horror lovers wondered when mumblecore auteur and occasional genre actor Joe Swanberg would tackle feature-length horror filmmaking. With his bent toward atmospheric, character-driven storytelling and associations with genre filmmakers like Adam Wingard and Ti West, it was only a matter of time before Swanberg found a horror story of his own to tell—yet fans of his V/H/S piece may be surprised that Swanberg opted out of startling, high-concept scares for the slow-burning dread of 24 EXPOSURES.
