The Outpost (1995)

Outpost, The (1995, USA) C-94m. * D: Joe Gayton. Starring Lance Henriksen, Claire Stansfield, John Diehl, Natasha Gregson Wagner, Giovanni Ribisi. In the middle of the desert, scientist Henriksen visits his former workplace, an underground lab, and must contend with secretly bred virus that has infected (and is transforming) a man found half-dead in the desert. Predictable mayhem ensues. Apart from okay direction and photography, this sci-fi horror flick recalls ALIEN (1979), PREDATOR (1987) and other films, and fails to work in any novelties. A bore, executive produced by Wes Craven (his son Jonathan coscripted). Also known as MIND RIPPER, or MINDRIPPER.
