Storyline

In London, the archeologist Anna Ash is informed by her Professor Joan Holland that the excavation site at the Sixteenth Century Ludgate Orphanage, where she is researching the Cult of the Black Priest during the Great Plague, will be demolished on the next morning to contain the contamination since it has been found the Y.pestis in the digging. The stubborn Anna breaks in the building at midnight expecting to find any substantial evidence that could stop the demolition. Meanwhile, four drugged punks hit and run with a stolen car and they hide inside the building. They are haunted and attacked by a ghost and one of them, Clive, is wounded. When Anna stumbles with the hoodlums, she realizes that Clive is contaminated and needs help. But soon they find that they are trapped in the building.

Trivia

Stunts coordinator Steve Truglia was pulled over for dangerous driving by plain clothes police officers from the Flying Squad in Old Street London on the final night of the shoot. Though the local council and police knew about the shoot, the undercover Flying Squad police coincidentally witnessed a take when the Ford Cabriolet was driving erratically and skidding. It took much persuasion for them to believe the stuntman that he was in a film even though he and the passengers were all wearing wigs. See more »

Quotes

Childs voiceover: In the blood, there is a sickness. There, might living creatures be seen. Visions of strange, monstrous and frightful shapes such as dragons, snakes, serpents and demons terrible to behold.

Not Horrible
26 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, this was not horrible to say the least. I have seen many movies that are even worse. For a low budget movie it was actually pretty thrilling. It gave you some spooks and jumps. Overall the storyline was a good idea, yet somewhat got lost along the way. The acting was OK. Some of the graphics and stunts were pretty gruesome and cool in a way. The dialog was quick and understandable and kept you enthralled throughout the film. Although, the ending was quite a disappointment and rather abrupt, the movie was overall good. Nothing compared to the old time horror flicks, but still good. Is it worth your money? Maybe... if you're looking for a slightly cheesy horror flick. Otherwise, just watch it online.
