At first, it seems like nothing more than a typical day on the job for Zoe (Katherine Drake), police sergeant somewhere in the British countryside, where nothing ever happens. Even when she's called to a suicide she suspects very little - but when she arrives at the scene and witnesses yet another suicide, things seem odd, especially since she can swear she has seen something moving in the shadows. On her way back, she witnesses yet another suicide - and some robotic creatures that seem to have to do with it. And she sees a spaceship. She reunites with her partner Patrick (Ritchie Crane) in a pub that's soon under siege by the robots, with their masters, giant humanoid aliens, waiting at a distance. Zoe, Patrick, elderly Dale (Michael Terry) and half-crazed Mitchell (Philip Alexander Baker) manage to make it out of the pub and into the police station where they intend to wait for reinforcements, but the police station is soon under siege as well, and the robots even find a way in. Also, Dale kills himself, apparently a victim of alien mind control, while Mitchell goes more and more out of his mind. When reinforcements arrive, they're quickly wiped out by the robots, but buy Zoe, Patrick and Mitchell enough time to escape. But riding to safety, wherever that might be, Mitchell shoots himself without warning. Zoe and Patrick meet a farmer who offers them protection at his place - but then they find out he keeps an alien chained up in his barn just to torture it ... and soon the place is overrun by robots and aliens alike, and it's more luck than anything else that Zoe and Patrick make it out once more. But they soon have to realize, there's nowhere left to go, really ...

 

Now granted, besides the novel idea of the aliens mindcontrolling people into suicide, Alien Outbreak doesn't exactly break any new ground, narratively - but what it does, it does very well: Sure, it's an alien invasion movie like dozens others, but its concentration on character development is a welcome change of pace, and the thing is well-structured and keeps the tension high throughout. Plus the film makes the most out of its rural locations, and the special effects are first rate, not only for a low budget movie like this one. So even if this is not the reinvention of the wheel, it's something that rolls really well, and deserves a watch for sure.
