Bad -- But Worth a Look
11 August 2003 | by (Exit 29) – See all my reviews

Very, very bad. Bad script...bad acting.

A few reasons why it's worth seeing --

Great filming location -- a magnificent, creepy old abandoned asylum in New Jersey, Essex Mountain Sanatorium. The sanatorium has an excellent web site that chronicles its history from construction to demolition, plus some information on Doom Asylum.

Kirstin Davis -- I'm sure she's ashamed of it now, but cool to see her in her first acting role while still at Rutgers.
