Re-formed by a coded message to their web site, a group of animal rights activists set off to free an imprisoned colleague from a terrifying ordeal. Their rescue mission leads them to a disused lab, but what should have been a simple raid turns into a series of twisted and mind bending incidents where the free and the caged switch places, in this tormented psychological horror. Written by
Some raw powerful performances, and truly chilling moments in this haunting Simon De Selva movie. The story takes that classic horror/science fiction set-up - a disparate and desperate bunch of characters entering some hostile environment and being menaced by a mysterious predator (From "Alien" to "Scooby Do"!) - and gives it a smartly original slant (the energy of the human soul being channelled into some new form of WMD). De Selva's direction is slick, atmospheric; and brings us some great set-piece moments, and nightmarish images. Tom Hardy (as Matt) brilliantly charts his character's journey from zero to hero, and Leo Bill plays the self-serving Danny with great intensity and truth. Most of the movie is set in a perfectly designed, creepily claustrophobic tunnel system where experiments are conducted on human "lab rats". And it's all carried along by a heart-thumping soundtrack.
