Storyline

Clark, a young Mathematics major at University, thinks she's found the best deal for student housing: a group of squatters who live in an abandoned hospital secretly. The quirky residents let her into their community provided she follow the rules, including not telling anyone about her living arrangements. All seems wonderful, until she discovers that the reason that the hospital was abandoned was a series of murders in the 1940's by a strange "shrieking killer" who was never captured - and the discovery that someone who's living in the hospital is using occult means to bring back the "Shrieker," a demonic force summoned and controlled by a human who knows the proper procedure. When strange occult circles are discovered, Clark finds herself the main suspect, because she is the newest resident. Written by Gary Dickerson <slug@mail.utexas.edu>

The easiest monster to kill ever.
10 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This comes from the great studio of Full Moon. Makers of such films as "Dollman", "Demonic Toys", and "Hideous". Here they at least try to make a horror movie and not a comedy/horror movie so they get points for that. What we get here is these people living in an abandoned hospital or something that one of them finds. It seems like a nice place except for the grizzly murders that took place there years ago. Well the monster is back and he is out to kill the kids who have taken residence here. The interesting thing is though that this monster is targeting certain people and it seems it is being manipulated. Well that is about the gist of it and it was not to bad, believe me Full Moon has made a lot worse. Still though this movie does have a rather anticlimactic ending cause the beast is killed really easily. In fact, anyone could have killed it. I won't give it away or how the monster targets its prey except I will say post-it notes of doom!
