The military sees itself only in Outpost being confronted with an overwhelming essence.[clarification needed] Military technicians—and video game freaks—Tom and Vic smuggle a top-secret, virtual warfare program into a disused prison, to experiment with it. What should first be a cool thrill becomes a deadly reality; a vengeful nature has manipulated the software and kidnapped all acting in the real world. When their companion Jess hears of this case, it begins a seemingly hopeless rescue mission and is also drawn into this virtual world, which can be just as deadly as real war. In the final level of this game, death awaits![4][citation needed]



The film was shot in September 2008 in Northern Ireland in the city of Belfast at the Crumlin Road Gaol.[5] It based on a storybook of British screenwriter Sven Hughes.[6]


The Score was composed by American country artist Bill Grishaw.[7]
