Storyline

The 8th Plague is the story of a woman named Launa who is investigating the disappearance of her sister, Nikki. Nikki had gone camping in the mountain town of Halcyon Springs and never came back. Becoming more and more frustrated, Launa realizes that she must find her sister on her own with the help of Mason, a mysterious local man with a shadowed past. Their search leads them to an abandoned prison called Halcyon Ridge Correctional Facility. Very soon after arriving within the stone and steel walls they are exposed to an ancient evil that had been lying dormant until its recent disturbance. Subsequently they learn the terrible truth about what happened to Nikki as well as the impending plague of darkness that intends to spread and reclaim the world. Written by Anonymous

good low-budget gritty splatter flick
20 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Surprised at the low ratings, obviously a lot of non-horror fans unable to deal with a little bit of fake blood. This is a tense, bloody, gritty low-budget splatter flick, nothing more or less. No plot to speak of, shot and directed in such a way as to maintain tension throughout. LOTS of fake blood, gore effects cheap but convincing. The acting is decent too, considering the genre. The infected/possessed/whatever look like they are wearing black-metal makeup for some unknown reason, which is kind of weird. An utterly predictable twist at the end. Unlike most American horror films these days you can empathize with the main character. With most US horror these days I really want to characters to die and get it over with as they are so annoying and obnoxious, but in this case I found myself rooting for the lead to survive the onslaught. If you like zombie films or survival horror you will probably really enjoy this movie, so long as you are not expecting to take away anything deep and meaningful from it.
