You have to understand to appreciate
16 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

If you watch this movie without knowing any of the history, I can understand why you would say it sucks; and I would agree. However, you need to understand what the director is trying to accomplish in order to appreciate what is going on.

Waverly Hills Sanatorium is a real place in Kentucky. It was built as a hospital to fight TB back in the early 1900's. There wasn't a cure, and morale was low, so the death tunnel was built to export bodies out of the building without the living seeing them. Patients not seeing the high death rate were given a new hope. It's an amazing building with an intriguing past, and is truly believed to be haunted.

Many of the scenes the director portrayed are actual accounts of what people have said to have witnessed. He's taken these stories and attempted to derive a horror flick. For this reason, and this reason alone, I would recommend the movie.

Now, to get to the movie.

First off, the acting isn't brilliant. Kristin Novak's character Ashley is ridiculously obnoxious, and the others are over-dramatic. The storyline isn't put together well, and it doesn't do a very good of explaining what is going on, so it's hard to follow. (If you know the history of Waverly Hills, it's not as bad).

I dug the movie because of it's history, not because it's good. I would definitely recommend checking out the episode of Ghost Hunters (Sci-Fi Channel) where they investigate the building; or check out the documentary (Also directed by Booth and aired on the Sci-Fi Channel).

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium is an amazing place, and it's a shame that the movie isn't any better.
