Storyline

Some nightmares never go away, especially for Laurie Cardell, whose secret is about to end. To the world she is a beautiful actress living the Hollywood Life, but to Daniel, she is the center of the universe. When Daniel's derelict brother, Nathan, is released from jail, his misguided actions cause all the worlds to converge in the dark cavernous rooms of the abounded asylum. For Nathan, his fantasy as a director will hopefully be fulfilled. For Laurie, her childhood nightmares will resurrected. For Daniel, the question to his obsession will be revealed. But for all three, a nightmare that none of them ever expected is about to come to life. Written by Jann Castor

Even "Oliver" never had it this bad!
27 November 2005 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Best viewed expecting the worst and let's face it, this title IS only ever going to grace Blockbuster's bargain-bin.

Approaching it as I did (having acquired the DVD yesterday, as part of a "4 for $10" special) with not a little trepidation, I would be lying if I said it was not worth a measly two-bucks fifty! Thomas-Howell has a field-day playing an ex-con with a touch of the demented Jim Carreys that crashes his younger bro's pad, then upgrades to murder and kidnapping simply to help his younger sibling finish his home movie.

Admittedly the premise is never matched by the wildly offbeat and fully unhinged denouement which by then has descended into a "Blair Witch" meets "Witchfinder General" compromise.

Still, the old lady at the gas station upstages the entire cast with HER few moments on screen. Absolute must-see gem of a cameo. What the purpose of her last scene was however, remains totally unexplained. "Someone up there you know?" asks the cop. "My sister," she replies, getting in the car.

WAY better than the 3.8 rating accorded here.
